2016 Design Challenge
OTS believes in community, innovation and sustainability. We proudly hosted our 3rd Ontario Tire Stewardship Student Design Challenge, in the fields of landscape architecture and industrial design, at Artscape Youngplace.
The goal of the challenge was to ignite creativity and innovative environmental landscape architecture and industrial design while showcasing the aesthetics, functionality and high performance of Ontario tire-derived products.
This year, we added a secondary element to our challenge—industrial design to encourage ingenuity and entrepreneurship.
As with previous years, the competition created a unique opportunity for design leaders of tomorrow to develop conceptual proposals and influence real construction. The competition was open to all design, architecture and landscape students enrolled at a post-secondary institution in Ontario.
Participating student teams attended an intensive Design Jam weekend from June 3rd to June 5th, where they developed and presented their design concepts to a panel of judges. Members of the winning design teams each received a scholarship award.
