SixtyNine Seventy invites design teams from around the world to re-envision the circulation areas and passages of two blocks in Salt Lake City’s downtown. The entrants will prepare comprehensive ideas for these in-between spaces, developing them into the connective tissue linking the area’s cultural amenities.
The competition in its entirety is about this interstitial space. It is not the design of new buildings, but about the relationships between them and other aforementioned
elements. Entrants are encouraged to focus on the formal and informal connections on blocks sixty-nine and seventy as they relate to the interconnectivity of the blocks and to the greater context.
The competition is open to everyone. Entrants are encouraged to form design groups with a varied composition of experts in any of the fields related to the built environment. Members of the jury, their business partners, and close relatives are excluded from the competition. All persons who have participated in the preparation work of the competition are also excluded. The competition organiser decides any exclusion matters.
