In 2018, Seoul City declared itself the “Human City Design Seoul.” The Human City Design Seoul Declaration pursues the common goal of a sustainable urban ecosystem aiming for a harmonious relationship between people and the environment.

As people around the world are increasingly living in urban areas, cities must cope with many socioeconomic and environmental issues. Cities face challenges such as rising social inequality, housing and energy crises, unemployment, climate change, aging populations and the recent pandemic crisis and many more. We believe Design is an important tool for cohesion and social transformation and to create the best living conditions for people.

The complexity of urban challenges requires interdisciplinary and collaborative participation with design and citizens. In response, the Seoul Metropolitan Government launched the international Human City Design Award in 2019 to celebrate designers or groups that use creative design to address complex urban environment problems and therefore contribute to building a more harmonious and sustainable relationship between people and people, people and society, people and the environment, and people and nature. The global health crisis that began in 2020 has made us aware of the necessity to reinvent our cities to ensure a better quality of life for humanity.

With the Human City Design Award, we wish to highlight design projects from all fields through Product, Process, Place, and Promise and learn about their Impact, Innovation and Social Inclusivity for people and society. This award is a window to communication and a platform of best practices, helping us understand what design can do to improve our everyday lives and inspire other cities. Now, in 2021, we are pleased to announce the call for entry for the 3rd Human City Design Award.
