Start Something Powerful Competition

Dezeen and Bentley have teamed up to launch a global design contest that calls for pioneering proposals that could have a powerful impact on how people live over the next 100 years.

The Start Something Powerful Competition challenges entrants to envision innovative architecture or design concepts that respond to rapid advancements in technology, evolving societal norms and environmental concerns to transform people’s lives.

The competition coincides with the launch of the new Bentley Continental GT, 100 years after W.O. Bentley unveiled the first Speed motor car to the public.

We are looking for bold, ambitious and forward-looking concepts that could reimagine the way future generations live, just like Bentley redefined the motor car in the 1920s and continues to do so today.

The contest is open for entries until 21 August 2024. Find out all you need to know about the competition at the links below:
