Seoul Cycle Design Competition 2010Jun 09
Seoul Design Foundation together with designboom promotes an international design competition. It is open to applicants from all over the world, to professionals, students, and design-enthusiasts.
it’s free to register, no entry fee.
Seoul was once considered a ‘hard’ city, Now, it is making strides toward becoming a ‘soft’ city. Seoul is about to be reborn as a soft city by embracing design concepts that will redefine its urban environment with an emphasis on themes centering on green, blue, history and human. The Seoul Cycle Design Competition will be held under the theme, ‘cycling with design: Seoul style,’
and is part of Seoul’s city-wide effort at improving its design brand and image.
The primary goal of the competition is to help build a design oriented city that focuses on its people.
The competition is divided into three categories:
cycle design, cycle fashion & accessories design, and cycling infrastructure.
All three categories emphasize environment-friendly ideas, with the hope that the contest will contribute to establishing a healthier cycling culture.
Cycles have become an icon of ‘eco-friendliness’ and ‘healthiness,’ and are part of a major urban lifestyle trend. Nearly everyone can enjoy riding cycles; therefore, just about everyone will be able to enter the competition. Through this competition they hope that all citizens will have the chance to share their own personal visions for a new Seoul, a city that has embraced change through design.
Everyone who is interested in cycling and design is invited to take part in the Seoul Cycle Design Competition.
