Urban design teams to compete at Fanshawe.

Twelve groups of students from colleges and universities across Ontario will present their innovative ideas for a parcel of London land at Fanshawe's inaugural urban design competition.

The competition is focused on the former home of London Health Sciences Centre's South Street campus, located between Wellington Road and Adelaide Street.

Students were asked to develop an urban design project which could include individual buildings, entire blocks, infill sites, riverfront parks, landmark features, railway compatibility or brownfields. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place, along with an honourable mention and people's choice award.
