An out-of-the-box design competition is launched by Udaipur Smart City Limited – “Udaipur Streets for People.” The initiative is to bring all the creative minds together in a design competition, commenced by the city, to re-envision the streets of Udaipur smartly!
By inviting all the architects, designers, planners, students and every creative mind, the initiative aims to make the streets of Udaipur safe, healthy, and a happy public place. The objective here is to gain professional input as well as creative ideas from designers, students and local people. The competition is a step forward from smart city mission, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Indian Government, to make the city’s streets walking friendly. Udaipur is one among the 113 cities to register for this significant challenge.
The Test-Learn-Scale approach is quite an essential aspect of this design completion. Hopefully, the competition will quickly be effective for pedestrians as well as be proven environment-friendly.
Participants should accentuate more on details and description, walkability, safety and protection, livable and stable environment. This competition is divided into two parts – Flagship & Neighbourhood Pilot Site. For Udaipur, Chetak Circle is marked under Flagship and slums of Indira Colony are under Neighbourhood Pilot Site.
The participants will be assessed and judged by local officers, citizens, specialists and other stakeholders. To participate in this competition, you have to register yourself, and the last date of registration is 27th Dec. 2020.
The first prize for the Flagship and Neighbourhood Pilot Site is Rs. 30,000, second prize is Rs. 20,000 and third prize is Rs. 10,000, which will be given by Udaipur Smart City Ltd.
