Design Challenge: With more than half the world’s population now living in cities, it is becoming increasingly important to invest in transport infrastructure in the even bigger, more hectic and more modern future cities that are developing. But infrastructure and technology are often prioritised over user experience. The way people feel when out and about in the urban landscape day after day, how they spend their time and meet or connect with each other while so doing – that all fades into the background. User experience is rarely part of the process to create something new. Watershed, the initiator of the relatively young but successful award, have become known as an active urban network. Once again, they are looking for globally-facing projects which start new conversations, imagine new futures and make new connections across the city. Creative ideas should address how to re-appropriate city infrastructure and make use of creative technologies, the goal being to make our cities more liveable, hopeful and collaborative spaces.
