hOUR City competition challenges students to strengthen connections between cities and their surrounding regions
Multidisciplinary student teams asked to redefine the boundraies of the “hour city” radius, providing broader access to opportunity

This “hour city” radius – the distance people can travel in one hour - has historically defined the boundary of a city, the reach of its infrastructure, and its exchanges with surrounding areas.  hOUR City invites students to develop new ways to connect people in suburban, rural, and isolated urban communities, and re-imagine what a future “hour city” boundary can be.

The solutions proposed by students must tackle transportation, housing, or economic development challenges, and must include a physical design intervention. Up to $15,000 USD will be awarded to the top teams; the winning team receives up to $25,000 USD of in-kind support to implement a pilot of their proposal.

Pre-registration deadline is June 28; competition deadline is July 17.

The Fondazione Frate Sole (Foundation), with the desire to promote and highlight the contributions of young graduates, establishes the European Award for Sacred Architecture for 2017,aimed at a project for Churches of Christian worship as the topic for university, doctorate, and master theses.
The purpose of the contest is to promote interest and research in the field of sacred architecture, starting from university level, so as to implement the artistic and mystical qualities designed to make sacred spaces a place of spiritual exaltation, which respond to the acquired communitarian conception of liturgy.

For the seventh year in a row, Professor Oliviero Godi of Milan Politecnic and I will be organizing an Architecture Summer School in the North of Italy. This Year Theme is Utopia, working on the largest sweet water Island in central Europe, celebrating the 501 years anniversary of the publication of the Utopia book by Thomas Moore.  
The site and the residence location are magnificent, on the Lake of Iseo, between the Swiss Alps, Northern Italy plains and Milan. The location is better known for the Christo installation “the Floating Piers”. The project will be for a reflection on the notion of Utopia, 501 years after the book Tomas Moore wrote on the subject, involving new technologies, spatial and social organization. The project will be a proposal for the Island to be entirely reliant on renewable energy, and to see the architectural and social implication of such a transformation of energy infrastructure.
This year we would be happy to welcome students from the EPF-Lausanne Architecture School. The tuition fee is quite reasonable at $300 and there are shared rooms in the Yacht Club for 10 Euro a night.
Find as attachment the workshop poster, a few images of the workshop location. Please forward this information to your undergraduate and/or Graduate students, as we are open to both either level. For additional information you can contact either or
