Night Time is the Right Time design competition - call for entries 

Have you got a bright idea that might help make 24-hour cities a reality?

The Built Environment Trust along with the Mayor of London are seeking ideas that could help the nightlife of cities work better. Architectural Association students are encouraged to show those at the forefront of design, planning and policy how we might think differently.

The winner will receive £1,000 and two runners up will receive £500 each. Up to 20 of the best entries will be shown in Night Time is The Right Time, a major exhibition and event programme at The Building Centre. Leading finalists will be offered speaking opportunities and their work will be promoted extensively.

Should developers be encouraged to design-in nightlife? How can landscape design help alleviate social problems? Could the energy of night-time revellers be harnessed to feed energy back into our cities? Futuristic ideas and practical solutions will both be welcomed.

The competition is open to all – architects, landscape architects, planners, environmentalists, students and other interested parties are invited to share ideas.
