The ULI Hines Student Competition—entering its 21st year in Americas — will be launched in Asia Pacific in 2023.
The competition offers final-year undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to form their own multidisciplinary teams and engage in a challenging exercise in developing a proposal for a site that reflects the responsible use of land in an effective creative, and sustainable way.
Teams of three to five students pursuing degrees in at least two different disciplines will have three weeks to propose a development programme for a real site in a large city in Asia Pacific.
Teams will provide a strategic overview, graphic boards and narratives of their proposals, including designs and market-feasible financial data.
The ULI Hines Student Competition Asia Pacific is open to final-year undergraduate and graduate students currently engaged with a university or similar Institution in the Asia Pacific region.
The ULI Hines Student Competition Asia Pacific is an ideas competition and be assessed as such. There is no expectation that anyone will apply the submitted schemes to the site.
Up to three teams will be shortlisted as finalists for the competition. Shortlisted finalists will present their proposals in a virtual forum on 20 April 2023. The winner will be announced on 28 April 2023.
All shortlisted finalists shall receive a one-year ULI student membership. The winning team will enjoy a fully paid trip – flight, accommodation and full-access ticket to the ULI Asia Pacific Summit in Singapore on 30 May – 1 June 2023. The winning team will be invited to present their winning piece during the Summit.
