Participants are invited to submit innovative, nature-inspired, and community-led solutions for urban regeneration and activation of the public space known as “Hastahana” – an emblematic location in the very heart of Sarajevo, where significant historical periods of the city overlap.

The submitted conceptual design proposals will be reviewed by an international five-member jury comprised of relevant renowned professionals. This Call for Ideas organized in the form of an innovation challenge aims to select three finalists, who will be awarded as described further in this document.

The top three highest ranked conceptual design proposals will be awarded under this Call for Ideas / Innovation Challenge as described further in this document.

Subsequently, the Municipality of Centar Sarajevo will publish these highest ranked top 3 conceptual design proposals and will invite on-line voting by the citizens of Sarajevo to select their preferred proposal. The Municipality intends to support the implementation of the proposal which gets highest number of votes by the citizens and invite the author to further develop the preliminary design for the urban transformation of the “Hastahana” public space in 2022.
