‘Stiftenstrijd’, the Battle of the Markers
Young urban designers, landscape architects, planners and other spatial designers battle on 1 June. They translate a progressive vision into a strong design for a case in the Netherlands in just one day – Helped by established professions, they do so not with words, but with images, and using the marker and sketch as an instrument!
Participants work on regional assignments derived from the National Environmental Vision (NOVI). They discuss with coaches from the professional field who bring knowledge and experience. And, a critical jury assesses the teams and selects two winners – one on content and one on imagination. This is the day to color outside the lines and shape the future.
