in 2018, the seoul metropolitan government declared it the ‘human city design seoul’ with the aim of being an urban beacon for a sustainable ecosystem between people, city and nature. the international human city design award launched in 2019 to share this goal, seeking and celebrating designers that use creativity to solve complex urban problems. the annual awards continue this push for a harmonious relationship, with the global health crisis rearing even more importance to the 2021 edition.

creating a sustainable urban environment for the future

 

the international design award seeks proposals that create a sustainable urban environment where all citizens can enjoy life. submissions will be assessed with three key themes of criteria: as a solution to living issues in the city, such as does it create a harmonious urban area; as a proposal for future vision, where the design contributes to a concept of global and future-orientated culture; and the expansion of global values, including ideas on how the design solution can be expanded on an international level. last but not least, proposed projects must be able to be implemented in less than five years.
