In its fifth Urban SOS student competition, AECOM seeks integrated design proposals that rehabilitate disused industrial and infrastructure sites in cities worldwide. Submissions should integrate urban, architectural, landscape, engineering, and environmental design to support the development of new industries, establish new centers of production, and strengthen the pre-existing urban fabric. Sites can be of any scale in any city worldwide.

This is an open, international ideas competition whose purpose is to gather ideas to stimulate discussion and to get the community-at-large to start thinking about the future of Toronto and its relationship to its waterfront. There is no commitment to build the ideas.
Furthermore, entry is open to any potential participant, and not limited to design professionals; submissions by multi-disciplinary groups or teams are encouraged as well.
Total prize value is $5,000 for winning submissions (there will be a first, second, and third prize). Prominent judges will be involved; moreover, ideas will create significant exposure here in Toronto with all entries being displayed in high visibility locations throughout the downtown core.
