A progressive competition that is being led by the McEwen School of Architecture (MSoA) in collaboration with the community. It is a competition, that offers the opportunity for entrants to think creatively about a city’s complete urban core.
The goal of this Urban Design Ideas Competition is to explore a wide range of options and opportunities for the evolution of the city’s urban core and to ultimately set out urban design principles, that will guide its future development.
This competition challenges entrants to create a new vision for the urban core of the City of Greater Sudbury. A 2050 vision that is far-reaching and one that will serve the city well in a rapidly changing global environment.
Entrants are asked to present their ideas for high-level design solutions for the urban core, reflecting the major building projects being proposed. Possible programs include a new library/art gallery/conference centre/performance centre, new housing typologies for a range of incomes, reimagining the space occupied by the railway lines, and a new arena/event centre – all in the urban core. Entrants are expected to address the placement and urban design issues related to one or more of these programs as part of their integrated “2020 Vision.”
