an international ideas competition for low-carbon futures

About the Design Ideas Competition

This ambitious project took place on an international stage while maintaining a local focus, “thinking globally and acting locally”.

We called on renowned international designers and academic institutions from a wide range of disciplines including architects, landscape architects, urban designers, planners, engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, economists, artists and students. Each entrant submitted design visions for how Latrobe city: the associated coal mining industry and agglomeration of townships could be transformed and current aspects strengthened for the future. 

Participating teams where given the same site in Latrobe City, a defined brief and specific submission requirements that they were required to fulfil.

Prize money and fame were awarded to the winning projects!
