Application term starts on:  April 21, 2009

Application term ends on: October 5, 2009


A single-level urban design competition is held among students nationwide within the scope of the UN Joint Program with a view to enhance social and professional awareness and set a model for local governments, facilitate women’s participation in social life, and create public spaces that are sensitive to the differentiated needs of urban dwellers.


It is expected that urban spaces address the needs, problems, expectations and priorities of various individuals/groups. The goal of the competition is the generation of exemplary public spaces that will meet women’s specific needs and expectations, facilitate their lives, and enable them to participate effectively in urban life. The competition will offer a platform for undergraduate students studying architecture, urban and regional planning, landscape architecture and urban design to exhibit and discuss creative ideas. The competition also aims at improving women’s daily lives in the public spaces including streets, neighborhoods, surroundings, and city centers, and contributing to the transformation of norms and standards in the planning and design processes of such spaces in our country.



Undergraduate students from Architecture, Urban and Regional Planning, Landscape Architecture and Urban Design departments of universities in Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus may apply individually or as a group.
