THE BRIEF

Young people in London are being invited to design a brand new neighbourhood in the Royal Docks, East London. Split into three age categories (11-15, 16-18 and 19-24) and they will need to create a masterplan for homes and green spaces in the area and also design a house. Their design should consider the themes of the challenge:

• Sustainable Transport

• Affordable Housing

• Green Energy / Climate Change

• Making Places
