Urban Design Challenge Exhibition


*Currently open for applications to participate*

Destination CQ (www.destinationcq.com) Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District has teamed up with Belfast Design Week 2018 to run an urban design challenge for local students and recent graduates with a prize fund of £500 and the chance to see your winning design realised. Destination CQ has a particular interest in the public realm and the spaces between the buildings within Cathedral Quarter; to make it an inviting, welcoming and attractive space through design such as way-finding, pavements, streetscapes, lighting, data mining and the internet of things.

The solutions for the design challenge can be short, medium or long term interventions; working with buildings, businesses or public spaces. This is your chance to be part of a design challenge in your city by coming up with an innovative design that helps the area become an inviting, welcoming and attractive space. The Destination CQ area includes Smithfield and Union, Cathedral Quarter and Laganside and shares a boundary with its Belfast One BID neighbours along Gresham Street, North Street, Bridge Street and High Street.

This challenge is open to students (of any subject) or recent graduates (maximum of 2 years since graduation), with a £500 prize fund for the design challenge kindly provided by Destination CQ. There will be a series of facilitated workshops on Saturday mornings throughout October and the opportunity to exhibit design ideas throughout Belfast Design Week 4-10th November
