The Order of Architects in Romania (OAR) and the Cluj County Council are glad to announce the official launch of the „Children’s Hospital Cluj-Napoca” International Design Competition.

The purpose of this competition is to select, in order to award the design contract, the best solution for an Emergency Clinical Children’s Hospital, located in the southeast of Cluj-Napoca, at the border of Gheorgheni and Borhanci.

Cluj-Napoca Emergency Clinical Children’s Hospital will function as an independent structure, with regional addressability, being the first public hospital in the Transylvania area to offer integrated medical services in the field of paediatrics. Through this approach, the Contracting Authority aims to develop a centre for medical services and research in the field of paediatrics, which also plays the role of an urban catalyst in an area undergoing urbanization.

The Contracting Authority of the competition is the Cluj County Council, the owner of the land.

The competition is organized by the Order of Architects in Romania, in accordance with the Competition Rules of the International Union of Architects – UIA – and the provisions of the International Regulations for architecture and urban design Competitions, adopted at the General Conference of UNESCO in 1956, as revised on November 27, 1978, the provisions of the Guide of good practice in organizing OAR design competitions, published in 2018, in compliance with the legal provisions in force regarding the award of public procurement contracts.
