The Urban Land Institute/Gerald D. Hines Competition is an annual graduate-level real estate and design challenge held in January.  Over the course of two weeks student teams, representing various disciplines, work to create urban design and financial feasibility analyses for a real-world development site located in the United States.  

Students anticipating participating in the competition may enroll this October in a seven week preparation course led by Professor Pike Oliver.  All graduate students at Cornell are eligible to participate, as well as, fifth-year undergraduate in programs such as that for the Bachelor of Architecture degree.  The course sessions review the competition requirements and enable teams to build a competition strategy.  Those who enroll in the course will meet on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM in East Sibley 157.
