The international contest is open to students, graduates and experts and its aim is to imagine and design possible scenarios of the city of the future: How will smart and sharing cities look like in the future? How are these changes going to impact on people’s lives in cities?

Participants are asked to produce spherical panoramas of the proposed scenarios. During the awarding ceremony the selected projects will be shown with immersive Virtual Reality displays (Head Mounted Display).

The international jury will award the most innovative projects. The winning proposal will be awarded with one ArchiCad 20 Full licence and one Lumion Standard licence (corresponding value € 6.289).
Moreover, the three winning projects will win three annual subscriptions to charging stations for electric vehicles (provided by NHP); these stations will be implemented within the European project Sharing Cities.

The competition is an initiative promoted by the Urban Simulation Laboratory ‘Fausto Curti’ – (labsimurb) of the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies (DAStU) of the Politecnico di Milano  (POLIMI).
