Urban Intervention invites designers to conceive a fresh vision of environmental, social, and economic opportunities on and beyond a 9-acre site at the heart of Seattle Center. How must public space perform in the coming century? Can we generate ideas today that will inform a new generation of cultural centers and public places?

The competition seeks complex, multidisciplinary design responses from a broad spectrum of innovative designers and is intended to inspire more broadly applicable solutions for major urban sites around the world, as well as contribute to a global dialogue about public space.

The competition has two phases: in the first phase, up to three finalist teams will be chosen to receive $30,000 each to fully develop their ideas. In the second phase, a Grand Prize Winner will be chosen for an additional cash prize of $30,000. Up to seven projects will be recognized with commendations or merit awards.
