In the early hours of Friday morning Omroep Flevoland pays a visit to makea report about the 24UP. For the radio and TV report they spoke with the organization and participants.
Off we go! Pen scratching, tearing of sketching paper and computer tattle overrule the sounds of bouncing basketballs, stomping shoes and Ricochet hockey sticks in the sport centre Almere Poort since half past two. The clock is ticking and the participants start in good spirits and enthusiasm to the assignment.
On tuesday january 6th 2015 in the lunchbreak at 12:45-13.30 Renato Kindt, teacher of hand drawing, will organize a 24-up warming up! 24 minutes. One secret mission. One secret location. (no, not really; it will take place in the hand drawing room).
The purple horses all around in Vertigo already brought the message: You can now sign up at the CHEOPS-desk for the 15th edition of 24UP on the 15th and 16th of january! The mission and location will be epic and participation will merely cost 15 euros per person. So it will be (almost) cheaper than staying home! You can sign up for teams of four, but it is no problem to sign in alone; we will try to create a team for you.

Now it is the participants’ task to reflect the sustainable image of ASN Bank in their solutions for the design brief.
On the 15th and 16th of January, the 24UP will be held for the fifteenth time.
The 24UP is a multidisciplinary design contest organised yearly by CHEOPS, study association of the build environment. For this contest, students of the build environment are given exactly 24 hours create a masterplan for an area given in the design brief. Throughout the years, this activity has grown more and more professional and well-known. This has resulted in creative and innovative solutions for municipalities as well as businesses.
The location as well as the design brief will be kept a secret up until the day of the 24UP. To introduce the students to the design brief there will be several lectures from involved parties before the contest starts. During the contest, where teams consisting of four people work on all the different disciplines, many supervisors will be available for the students when they have questions. After the 24 hours are over, a professional and experienced panel of judges will judge the different masterplans and announce a winner. Afterwards all submissions will be combined into a final booklet which will be open for viewing within the faculty of the build environment, Vertigo on the TU Eindhoven campus.
The Universityfund Eindhoven (UFe) will also be a sponsor of the 24UP this year. THe UFe was founded by alumni of the TU and supports education and scientific research and stimulates the studentculture with her contribution. The educative and studentlike character of the 24UP is strongly related to the goals of the UFe. We want to thank the UFe for their undeniable contribution to a unforgettable studentship for the participants.
