The purpose of the Competition is to select the best Investment design located in the vicinity of the Birthplace of Fryderyk Chopin and Park in Żelazowa Wola.

 The conceptual architectural design must take into account the spatial relationship with the Birthplace of Fryderyk Chopin, which is the focal point of the historic park surrounding it, in particular it must harmonize with the function of the site, i.e. the Park-Memorial created in the 20’s and 30’s of the 20 century to commemorate the great artist. Its outline dimensions should organically harmonize with the landscape without dominating the surroundings, which should not however exclude architectural design proposals with a distinct identity. The topography, architectural context of the interwar Park-Memorial and vegetation creating time-varying compositions are all important points of reference for the design project. It is because of this context that the aesthetic value of the proposal and its symbiosis with the surrounding landscape values is of particular importance. The design should take into account the composition of the surrounding vegetation, which in a creative manner refers to the local landscape and modernist layout of the Park. The Investment shall meet the requirements of sustainable development.

The Competition shall be held in the Polish language. The documents and declarations prepared in a language other than Polish shall be enclosed with a translation into Polish certified by the Participant or his/ her representative.
