Challenge for the Urban & Built Environment (CUBE) 2015
In November 2015, spanning over a period of four days, an ensemble of passionate geography students partook in the prestigious annual Challenge for the Built Environment or ‘CUBE’ competition for short, jointly organized and facilitated by both the URA and the department of architecture, NUS.
The CUBE competition saw some 150 students from 19 different junior colleges and polytechnics who raced against time to develop innovative and insightful plans for a redeveloped Paya Lebar. Through the four day workshop cum competition, students were given an unprecedented opportunity to be urban planners – to delve deep into the intricacies of urban design and land use planning.
Forging ahead with the prospective vision of an interwoven and rejuvenated Paya Lebar, we are delighted to announce that Team CJC emerged victorious amid formidable competition from various institutions and the polytechnics, securing one of the top 3 positions in the competition.
