The CUDC is gearing up to host students for the 2014 international ULI Urban Design Competition!  Now in its twelfth year, the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Gerald D. Hines Urban Design Competition is a two-week interdisciplinary finance, planning, and design competition for currently enrolled graduate students.  An “ideas” competition focusing on contemporary urban issues asks students to devise a viable financial and design scheme for development.

The 2014 competition takes place between January 13-27, 2014 and will house local participants here at the CUDC. The registration period for teams closes on December 9, 2013. If you are a graduate student interested in participating, please contact Jeff Kruth of the CUDC, jkruth @ kent.edu, for more information. The competition website can be found here, along with past winners and entries: www.udcompetition.org

Last year, a Cleveland team composed  of Case Western, Cleveland State, and Kent State students received an honorable mention in the pursuit of a $50,000 grand prize for their “Active East” proposal in Minneapolis.  A mixed use program and transit oriented development design promoted an active lifestyle for residents and visitors downtown.
