Competition of ideas for low cost, low tech interventions designed to confront critical issues regarding public space and infrastructure in specific contexts. Open to design-related professionals, artists and non-professionals, multidisciplinary teams. In Poggibonsi, Siena. Italy
The competition is designed to give visibility to “decent architecture”, to micro-urban interventions in any city in the world planned to respond to a demand or explicit need of a population or community, whether in poor areas of western cities, or in the shanty towns of Africa, Asia or Latin America. Candidates are required to select a particular local issue or problem to which low cost, low tech responses are appropriate through micro-urban interventions for the regeneration of public space.
The first ten projects selected will be featured in an exhibition in Venice during the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale, 27 August – 1 September 2012.
Deadline for submisions 31-05-2012
