Fast-paced showcase during the Design track at SXSW 2019.
December 16, 2018
Place by Design is SXSW’s public space design competition, celebrating transformative work at the intersection of art, technology, and design that rethinks how we use and interact with the places around us.
The built environment and design of our shared spaces have a profound influence on our daily lives. In the public realm, design-based solutions can produce a wide range of outcomes impacting areas as diverse as health, behavior, social interaction, creativity, and civic engagement.
Place by Design provides a platform for artists, architects, designers and urbanists at all levels to present their scalable solutions for improving our shared landscape.
Ta7rir is a non-governmental organization, launched to support creatives addressing social and economic challenges, with a focus on their freedom in proposing alternative solutions, far from any form of censorship and limitations.
