Opportunity Space Competition

Date published



Opprtunity Space is an international design-build competition that seeks to respond to Europe's migrant influx by calling for contributions on the creation of a temporary mobile structure that will foster economic opportunity and social inclusion in Malmö, Sweden. The competition will bring new and established residents together to produce a public space hub for education, job assistance, and social inclusion programs that benefit everyone in Malmö.

The winning team will receive a $10,000 prize and up to $25,000 to implement its proposal in and around Malmö’s Enskifteshagen Park.

Opportunity Space is the first in a new Van Alen Institute series of Flash Competitions: challenges that bring together multidisciplinary teams of designers and other experts for short, intense projects in cities around the world to take on
urgent societal issues through design.
