More Info

The Urbanarium has issued an invitation to designers around the world to develop and present innovative solutions that enhance community vitality. Existing monocultural single-family neighbourhoods need to densify with Missing Middle housing, but that on its own isn’t enough. Those neighbourhoods also need a variety of activities to thrive. This competition asks entrants to add new mixed-use functionality to skillfully enhance densifying areas, building on lessons learned during the pandemic. Welcome to The Mixing Middle.
