Four Arup-led projects have been shortlisted for the Reinventing Cities competition, designed to encourage sustainable deveopment.

Arup projects in Chicago, Madrid, Montreal and Milan have been included in a shortlist of 31 underutilised spaces across 12 global cities.

Cowi’s project in Oslo and Ramboll’s Paris scheme have also made the shortlist.

The 12 shortlisted cities include Auckland, Chicago, Houston, Madrid, Montreal, Oslo, Paris, Reykjavik, Salvador, San Francisco and Vancouver.

Reinventing Cities has been set up for cities, urban development stakeholders, and citizens to benefit from an open source contest designed to accelerate decarbonised, resilient and sustainable urban environments around the world.

Each Reinventing Cities project will serve as a model for carbon-neutral development, demonstrating innovative and replicable climate solutions.

Hundreds of innovative solutions were proposed, including creative ideas around energy, new types of material for construction, methods for creating circular economies and zero-waste systems. Schemes focusing on urban farming and local food production were also submitted as ideas.

Final submissions are expected to be completed by early 2019, and the winning team for each site will be announced in Spring 2019.
