2022 PAVE STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION
IN COLLABORATION WITH CITY RELIEF
The annual PAVE Student Design Competition promotes “real-world” design experience for college-level students globally, who are interested in pursuing careers in the design industry.
Student designers across the globe are encouraged to participate in designing and enhancing a mobile/pop-up, guest experience for City Relief, connecting friends and guests in need, with much-needed resources while creating an equitable sense of place for friends and neighborhoods.
To support the idea of a pop-up "Third Place," your vision should be a transformative experience based on strong design concept development, defining a unique and supportive guest experience, while celebrating a flexible, sustainable, and buildable project.
