For this exercise, you are required to identify an issue or major site and respond to it by presenting bold ideas and visions for its future.
Your site can be a building, a street or a public space that you wish to reconsider through design.
Your design vision may be informed by opportunities you identify within the site.
Alternatively, you can engage with current or recurring issues facing society or the built environment as a way of expressing your ideas about design.
You are encouraged to be ambitious and brave in the design work that you present in response to this exercise. In preparing your response, think broadly, imaginatively and be creative.
Your proposal does not have to be practical or even possible, it could be for now or a long way into the future.
There is no one correct response to this exercise and you are not expected to have any substantial prior knowledge of architecture.
The selection panel will be assessing your ideas and vision and not your ability to communicate architectural ideas visually.
You should draw on your own experience, research, and skills to put forward your own ideas.
Consider the issue or site and your design response carefully before preparing your final submission so that your ideas are clearly presented to the selection panel.
