For the 2014 Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition, 163 teams representing 72 universities in the United States and Canada proposed a development vision that promotes healthy living for the residents of Nashville’s Sulphur Dell neighborhood.
The competition jury gathered in February 2014 to select the finalists. Teams representing the Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard University, the University of Maryland, and the University of Texas at Austin advanced to the final round of the competition.
In this final phase, each of the teams will be given the opportunity to expand their original development proposals, which they will present to the competition jury on April 3 during a public forum in Nashville. A $50,000 prize will be awarded to the winning team, and each of the remaining three finalist teams will receive $10,000.
The Hines Competition is designed as an exercise; there is no intention that the students’ plans will be implemented as part of any development of the site.
