Green Works Orlando: Envision 2040 Competition Brief
Purpose of the Competition:
The City of Orlando is currently developing the first Green Works Orlando Community Action Plan. Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer has challenged the community to develop a plan that would transform Orlando, within a generation, into one of the most environmentally-friendly, economically and socially vibrant communities in the nation. In conjunction with the Plan, the City is introducing a competition, titled Envision 2040, which aims to illustrate what the City will look like in the future.
Envision 2040 is an ideas competition that promotes an effort to visualize what Orlando, the most sustainable City in the southeast, will look like in 2040. If all the goals and objectives of the Plan were implemented today, what would our City look like in the future?
Drawings, renderings, and pictures are as important as words in embracing and understanding the possibilities of a greener future. We are seeking professional and citizen design input to promote awareness of the Community Action Plan and to assist in visualizing a greener Orlando. The proposals should illustrate how the topics of discussion (economy, energy, food, green building, solid waste, transportation, water and livability) could transform a part or the entire City.
