Tactical Urbanism Now! Architecture Competition | The challenge of this competition is to imagine more inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable public spaces. The idea is to think creatively and to experiment with new possibilities to improve the conditions of the cities where we live in.
Exploring the potentialities of Tactical Urbanism, designers are encouraged to propose ingenious and unconventional projects capable of transforming a public space with a hidden potential, an underused urban area or even a neglected residual plot.
The “15 Minutes City” concept can be helpful to understand which functions and uses might be more suitable for the area where you are thinking to locate your project. The term defines a highly flexible urban model that ensures all citizens can access daily needs within a short walk, a bike ride or a public transport trip, reducing therefore carbon emissions and commuting time while generating more public spaces.
Remember that scalability, modularity and flexibility can be key factors to guarantee a successful design. At the same time, do not forget about the formal aspect of your proposal: the colours, textures and shapes of each element will make the difference. Use your imagination and take public space to another level!
