The URA-REDAS SPARK Challenge organised by the URA and Real Estate Developers’ Association of Singapore is a yearly competition that seeks ground-up innovation to raise the quality of the built environment by offering participants an opportunity to test and showcase their prototypes in commercial developments. This year, the contest challenges participants to boost people’s health and wellness for a higher quality of life within the built environment. For instance, the submitted design may:
- Encourage people to be more active indoors and/or outdoors (physical wellness), or
- Improve the sensorial experience of a shopping centre to lift people’s moods (emotional wellness), or
- Provide a restorative environment for people to recharge (psychological wellness), or
- Foster interaction among people to build connections with one another (social wellness)
Participants stand a chance to win $5000 to build and test their prototype in a shopping centre, and one winner will also be awarded $10,000 at the end of the competition! The registration and submission period starts on 14 November 2017 and ends on 7 February.
