CBDX: BORDERLANDS brings political, geological, social, and other boundaries into sharp focus

Calgary, Canada, 23-03-2021 – The School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape (SAPL) at the University of Calgary has launched its second international design ideas competition, asking: How can designers intervene in borders?

Borders are spaces of transition. Whether political and imposed through human agency, or natural and made manifest through geographical features, borders are associated with civilization’s greatest challenges. How we choose to choreograph and intersect these transitional spaces will reveal much about our priorities.

The competition asks entrants to consider the opportunities, challenges, and complexities latent within borders and propose new paradigms. Participants can choose any type of border, define a friction that presents a programmatic opportunity, and propose a design that impacts the agents (human or otherwise) that are affected, influenced, or in proximity to that border.


The competition offers CAD $ 6000 in prizes and the deadline for submissions is June 21, 2021.

The international, interdisciplinary jury will announce the winning entries on September 8, 2021.”
