2016 Shortlist is live

We are delighted to reveal the  eight projects that have been selected for the 2016 Playable City shortlist – which are now open for your comments.

The 2016 call asked for ideas which respond to the theme of Journeys. We received applications from 34 countries and from individuals, studios and collectives from fields as diverse as urbanism, visual art, literature, games, performance and architecture.

The final decision will take place on 6 October and will be announced later in the month. The panel of judges are waiting for your questions and comments to help inform their decision.

The winning idea will receive a £30,000 award for their idea which will re-appropriate city infrastructure and make use of creative technologies to make our cities more liveable, hopeful and collaborative spaces. The idea will be prototyped and publicly tested in Bristol, UK, and then tour to other Playable Cities globally.

The Playable City Award 2016 is produced by Watershed and supported by:
