Reimagining the LeBreton Flats Park District
Urban planning and design have the potential to dramatically transform our collective surroundings, influencing and enabling the way we use public spaces. The Urban Design Challenge is a competition that invites students from across the country to come up with design concepts for sites in the National Capital Region.
Students are encouraged to unleash their creativity and share their visionary ideas for the Park District of LeBreton Flats. Located 1.5 km from Parliament Hill in the western downtown core of Canada’s capital city, this 10-hectare site stretches from the Bayview LRT Station in the west to Nepean Inlet and the aqueduct in the east.
This competition challenges students to propose innovative planning and design ideas for the LeBreton Flats Parks District and inspire future consultation efforts for these parklands. It is open to students enrolled in a post-secondary institution who are studying planning, architecture, environmental design, urban design or landscape architecture in Canada. The maximum number of participants per team is three.
The winning project team will receive the first-place award of $750 and a trip to Ottawa, Canada’s Capital. The second-place award is $500 for the runner-up team.
The winning team will be invited to present their ideas at a special awards presentation session of the NCC’s Urbanism Lab on May 23, 2024.
