Urban Commissions invites all creatives residing in the UAE to propose and design a public shelter which will be installed in the urban landscape of Dubai Design District (d3).
For its second edition, the proposed design installation needs to address the basic function of shelter for the public domain, welcoming a variety of users to rest within its parameters while establishing an important functional, social and community building role for placemaking in Dubai.
The proposed concept can consist of any form of shelter, traditional or otherwise, and the winning design must be entirely manufactured in the UAE. Selected by notable judges, the winning design will be produced with a grant of AED 50,000.
The winning proposal of Urban Commissions 2016 will be unveiled at Design Days Dubai in March 2016, before moving to its new home in d3.
Deadline: 11pm, November 30, 2015. The call is open to anyone residing in the UAE including students and professionals
