Port City launches competition for university students

Port City Colombo has launched a competition, ‘Envision the Future’, to design a beach sculpture and an interactive wall targeted at budding local designers. The iconic sculptures and first of its kind interactive wall that will adorn the country’s largest landmark development project, Port City Colombo, are set to become local monuments that will be identified globally.

The design competition is a part of Port City Colombo’s aim to capture the Sri Lankan spirit through several strategic monuments that will act as beacons when the project is identified globally. With several phases of the project already underway, such as the public beach and parks, the sculptures and the interactive wall will be a part of its next stage of development. The competition will be conducted on a digital platform. Partnering with Academy of Design to mentor design concepts in the competition and ARTRA magazine as the official ART partner, Port City Colombo Invites the next generation to contribute to the design of this monumental project.

The sculpture design and interactive wall concept competition is open to Sri Lankan nationals who are undergraduate and Master’s students enrolled in any registered university in the country or overseas and reading in the fields of art, architecture, design, engineering and or any other program that aligns with creativity.
