Design Challenge Crime winner to be announced


The winning team in this year’s RMIT University Design Challenge competition will

be announced tomorrow, Wednesday, 10 November.


The 2010 Design Challenge: Crime focuses on the role design can play in crime

prevention, planning and response in our communities.


The challenge has brought together more than 30 researchers and specialists from

applied communications, urban planning, business, art, sociology, mathematics

and architecture. Five teams have been named as finalists.


The winner will be declared at the 2010 Design Challenge Crime Exhibition, an

exhibition featuring the finalist teams, running from 10 until 17 November at the

GPO, Melbourne.  The winner will receive a $25,000 grant toward research and

development in 2011.  


Finalists’ ideas relate to crime in social, economical and environmental ways.

These include an app for safe travelling through Melbourne, ideas to counter

financial and liquid resource criminals, and designing interactive and predictive

tools for planning infrastructure and communications to make a safer city. 


The annual Design Challenge is run by RMIT’s Design Research Institute and was

launched in 2008 by the Victorian Minister for Industry Innovation and Regional

Development. Each year it focuses on a topical and urgent community issue.  


It is supported by City of Melbourne, Design Victoria, Australian International

Design Awards and Standards Australia.
