Competition: we've teamed up with research and design company Praud to give readers the chance to win one of five T-shirts featuring plans of the world's most influential cities.
Praud stands for Progressive Research on Architecture, Urbanism and Design, and their Figureground project analyses the data collected by banks and financial institutions in order to rank cities, questioning what meaning these figues really have.
Please include your size when entering the competition: women (small/medium) and men (small/medium/large).
If you can't wait to see who wins, you can order the T-shirts online here.
This competition has now closed.
Competition closes 1 November 2011. Five winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeenmail newsletter and at the bottom of this page.
Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
Here are some more details from Praud:
FIGUREGROUND is a research project by PRAUD, analyzing the quality of life in metropolitan settings. We create products that generate an intellectual and educational dialogue about cities, and what makes a city unique for living and visiting. Figureground t-shirts showcase the World’s Most Influential Cities that our team is researching.
The project began when the team analyzed several surveys ranking world cities that had been conducted by private consulting institutions, banks, and other financial agencies. The whole private ranking process seemed vague in terms of representing their criteria or system for ranking world cities.
FIGUREGROUND is trying to break this by generating a public voice by means of its products.
Congratulations to the winners! Gytaute Akstinaite in Lithuania, Robin van Deutekom in the Netherlands, Marta Garcia Sancho and Ray Rodenas in Spain and Toi Phillips in the USA all won a Figureground T-shirt.
