City Build reflects the true challenges of architects and town planners the world over. The aim is for the group to construct a giant model city that relies on creativity but also strong planning and discipline within the design & build teams. This is also a great opportunity for everyone in a team to collaborate, demonstrating that teams within teams pull together towards one common goal.
How It Works
Teams of 8-10 people are given 4 sections of the city to build, one each of 4 zones – industrial, residential, leisure and business. The teams have to collaborate and communicate with each other to ensure that there is uniformity of design across the zones and that roads, rivers, etc. flow coherently with the other teams’ sections next to theirs and in the city as a whole. Using wide ranging materials, they build an imaginative and creative city that is functional and aesthetically pleasing. The planning needs to be sound to ensure that the city is harmonious and not disjointed.
