We’re Calling On Creatives Worldwide To Design The Post-Fossil City

  • Imagine a city that’s not addicted to fossil fuels. How would that change the way we live, work, and move around?

    In collaboration with the Urban Futures Studio we proudly presents the Post-Fossil City Contest. We’re calling on artists, designers, architects, urbanists, authors, photographers, filmmakers and all-around creative thinkers and doers to envision the city in a post-fossil era. Proposals in any shape or form are welcome: from illustrations, 3D models and essays to videos, products and interventions.

    In order to make the post-fossil future, we first have to imagine it.

    Deadline for submissions is February 24. The jury, including architect and MVRDV-founder Winy Maas, City of Utrecht alderwoman Lot van Hooijdonk, and scientist Maarten Hajer, among others, will select the ten best proposals. The makers of these proposals will receive €1,000 to further develop their ideas. The finalised works will be included in the Post-Fossil City Exhibition in Utrecht, which opens on June 15. From these ten, the jury will select a winner, who will be awarded €10,000.
