In 2017 , as part of the 10th edition of the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne, the local transport company STAS launched a contest entitled A Streetcar Named Design intended to design students from all over France. The contest was such a success that in 2019 it was extended to international students of the schools within the UNESCO Creative Cities Design network.
A Streetcar Named Design, a creativity contest, 3rd edition
The goal ? To imagine and design a full covering for one of the tramways of Saint-Étienne Métropole, that will be put into circulation on the ocasion of the opening of the 12th Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne (April 2022).
The winner(s) of the competition will have the opportunity to decorate a tramway of the Saint-Étienne Métropole urban transport network that will circulate for a substantial period joining the proposals of the winners of the 2017 and 2019 editions, still running today.
