Competition: five Figureground T-shirts

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.

Competition: five Figureground T-shirts

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.

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.

Competition: five Figureground T-shirts

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.

    questionning the ranking of cities is interesting, sure thing.

    however I miss how the (pretty) t-shirts are expressing anything else than the reproduction of a figure-ground city plan?

    how are the cities chosen and what exactly are you criticizing about the rankings?

    • you got the point. this was the first line of design we had which does not include that much of interpretation. we are working on the second line that is more about our own mapping and show interesting information of a city through the design.
