The challenge of this competition is to encourage participants to imagine a city where public space goes beyond the traditional conception of a park, a square or a street. The idea is to experiment with new urban scenarios, which are able to promote social exchange, community activities and citizens interaction through the implementation of multifunctional designs. Use your imagination and propose a concept that takes urban space into another level, transforming it to become more playful, lively and welcoming!

Requested Material: Two A2 panels + a brief text

The competition is open to students, architects, designers, urbanists, engineers, artists, makers, activists and anyone interested in the transformation of the contemporary urban space.
