For this challenge, we are starting a living revolution. ‘Macro to Micro’ is a two-challenge competition looking at revolutionising the way we live from the city to the human scale. In this competition, we will focus on the Macro element and ask you to engage with the idea of new neighbourhoods and greenfield developments on a city scale. Today, we live in a housing crisis. The solution is the expansion of urban areas into previously greenfield sites in schemes that are driven by profit rather than quality of life and design, which see empty land and wildlife not as assets but as usable vacant plots.
