Event Details

Where we live plays a role in who we are. It influences where we go to school, where we work, who we hang out with, everything. According to the United Nations almost 75% of everyone on earth will live in a city by 2050. This move to high-density living will push architecture and the urban experience to it’s max.

While some people may fear this movement and Hollywood loves to portray the dystopian possibilities; there is also an opportunity for beauty. Billions of people will have new stories and experiences to share and collect. These experiences will be multi-cultural and unrestricted by physical distance. All of this will be influenced by the design of our current and future cities.

Write a short story that captures the emotion, movement, and culture of where you live. How do your characters respond to a world destined for mass urbanization? It can be fictional or based on a true story.
