How the Sea2City Challenge works

Sea2City Design Challenge is organized around three rounds of advisory sessions and workshops with groups established for the project along with public learning events and other activities. 

The third and final round of public engagement will also include a one-day, inter-team design charrette for a fifth Sea2City challenge site for teams to apply lessons learned through the challenge process.
