The Center for Public Interest Design and School of Architecture at Portland State University invite PSU students, faculty, and colleagues to join the 2016 Plural City Ideas Challenge, a competition to envision the design of an imaginative, sustainable, viable resource exchange in an area threatened by economic displacement and homogenization.

A jury of distinguished design professionals, including Brent Brown (bcWORKSHOP), Brentin Mock (CityLab), Dan Pitera (Detroit Collaborative Design Center), Katie Swenson (Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellowship), Belinda Tato (Ecosistema Urbano), and Michael Willis (MWA Architects), will review the entries.

Prizes are $1,000 for First Prize, $500 for Second Prize, and $250 for Third Prize. A selection of entries will receive honorable mention and inclusion in a public exhibit in downtown Portland, as well as in an online gallery. 

Final deadline for registration and submissions:
May 22, 2016, 11:59 p.m. EST (8:59 PST)

$45 per submission; $30 before May 1
