Penang Bay International Ideas Competition: Open for Submissions

Sat 15 Aug, 2020


The Penang State Government officially announced today that the Penang Bay International Ideas Competition was open for submissions. Open to local and global innovators and thinkers, the competition seeks to generate inspiring ideas and concepts for Penang’s waterfront assets in order to drive prosperity and build a resilient city-state over the next 50 years. The Penang Bay concept is one that envisions a new economic zone with a rejuvenated urban core to bring life back into Penang’s historical and natural water-based assets—enabling people and attracting capital to invest in a new city form. As part of Penang’s recovery strategy, innovation is required to reshape the future, by transforming the waterfronts of the island and mainland in a way that builds social, economic and environmental resilience.
