A team of University of Maryland graduate students has taken top honors at the 2014 Urban Land Institute Student Urban Design Competition with its plan to redevelop Nashville’s Sulphur Dell neighborhood as a healthy community.
The UofM team, which will receive $50,000 for its efforts, topped groups from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard University and the University of Texas at Austin in the 12th annual competition. Each of the three finalist teams will receive $10,000.
The UofM design, called Chords, proposes a partnership between existing private owners or property in Sulphur Dell and the State of Tennessee. The design “captured the experiences of a diverse group of people brought together by regional connectors, culture, living and fitness ‘strings,’” according to a release. The Maryland team's presentation board is available here and its narrative presentation is here.
This year, 163 teams comprising 815 students from 72 universities in the United States and Canada participated in the first round of the competition. Established with an endowment from long-time ULI leader Gerald D. Hines, the competition encouraged teamwork among future land-use professionals and allied professions, such as architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, historic preservation, engineering, real estate development, finance, psychology and law.
