Competition for the development of an architectural concept for the modernization and expansion of the building of the Educational and Museum Center of the Roztocze National Park, together with land development and a path in the "treetops" and a viewing tower

organizer: Roztocze National Park

Roztocze National Park has announced a one-stage implementation competition for the modernization and expansion of the Education and Museum Center in Zwierzyniec. The competition also calls for the design of an educational path and a viewing tower. The deadline for submitting works is April 28 this year.

purpose

The purpose of the Competition is to obtain the best concept in terms of architecture, space and functional-utility, for the modernization and expansion of the RPN Education and Museum Center building, together with land development and an educational path in the "treetops" and a viewing tower in the area indicated in the appendices to the regulations.

terms and conditions

The competition is an implementation, unlimited, one-stage competition.

The competition requires the submission of one competition work, and participants may be individuals, legal entities, organizational units without legal personality. Participants taking part in the competition jointly are obliged to establish a proxy authorized to represent them.

The subject of the competition is to create an architectural concept/visualization of the modernization and expansion of the RPN Educational and Museum Center building at 3 Beach Street in Zwierzyniec, together with land development and a path in the "crowns of the trees" and a viewing tower within the boundaries of the competition study, taking into account the indications and conditions specified by the RPN.

The planned task is related to the statutory activities of the Park. The task is oriented towards the ecological effect, the realization of the statutory objectives of the Roztocze National Park, and not the financial profit associated with the operation of the facilities. Tasks implemented in the project are aimed at educational activities and making the park accessible to tourism and promoting the idea of nature conservation.

TheEducation and Museum Center (OEM) was put into operation in 1994, as one of the first in Polish national parks. The increase in tourist traffic, the need to use modern technologies and forms of education, "green technologies", the implementation of new tasks facing national parks, and the decapitalization of infrastructure are forcing the expansion, modernization and adaptation of the OEM to new needs.

Theconstruction of an educational path "in the treetops" in the immediate vicinity of the OEM and the historic part of Zwierzyniec and Echo Ponds is intended to extend the tourist season and increase the attractiveness of the area of lesser natural values, adjacent to the tourist area of Zwierzyniec.

The construction of a tower in Panasówka is a measure aimed at defragmenting tourist traffic and relieving pressure on areas of natural value. Redirecting it, through the development of tourist attractions, to a peripheral area - the Park's buffer zone. The observation tower will provide a glimpse of the disappearing cultural harmonious landscapes of Roztocze in the region's edge zone.

The concept of the project should take into account architectural and communication and information assumptions in the sense of the Act of July 19, 2019 on ensuring accessibility for people with special needs. Each space should allow maximum independent and informed use. It should be accessible and free of architectural barriers, so that all rooms and accompanying facilities are accessible to people in wheelchairs or to people with other dysfunctions.

Detailed design guidelines can be found in Appendix 19.

The maximum planned total cost of completing the project in a finished state, including interior furnishings and landscaping in the scope will not exceed PLN 44,110,000 gross.

The maximum planned total cost of the execution of the object of service on the basis of the selected competition work will not exceed the amount of PLN 210,000 gross.

The competition work must unambiguously indicate spatial, functional, programmatic and other solutions relevant to the idea of the presented concept. In terms of graphics, the competition work must be characterized by the legibility of textual and drawing information.

The work should consist of a graphic part (boards in 100×70 cm format in a horizontal arrangement, in the number of up to 12 pieces) and a descriptive part (up to 32 pages of standard text in A4 format and additionally: a program table of the building, a table of the building parameters, a site balance table, other required by the regulations and law, and boards of the graphic part reduced to A3 format).

prizes

The total amount allocated by the organizer for cash prizes and honorable mentions is PLN 70 thousand gross.

The competition provides for the following prizes:

  • 1st Prize - 40 thousand zlotys gross, and an invitation to negotiate under a sole-source contract,
  • II Prize - 20 thousand PLN gross,
  • Third Prize - 10 thousand PLN gross.

The next edition of the Kaira Looro international architectural competition is taking off. This year the challenge facing the architects is to design a school in Africa. The winner(s) of the competition will not only have the opportunity to realize their idea, but will also receive a financial prize and an internship at Kengo Kuma's Japanese studio.

target

57 million primary-school-aged children are out of school, more than half of them living in sub-Saharan Africa. Most schools in this part of the world have no toilets, checkrooms or cafeterias, and many students come to class hungry, sick or exhausted.

The architecture of the building, its shapes and colors are to inspire confidence in the students, the community and the authorities, to create a place where every child will find himself and begin to build his future.

The elementary school project can be built on any plot of land in one of the rural areas in southern Senegal.

conditions

The project should be planned in such a way that it can be built with the local community - be easy to build without the need for complicated equipment, use natural materials and blend in with the rural surroundings.

The building should be one-story with a maximum interior area of 650 square meters. The total cost of building materials alone must not exceed 70,000 euros.

The school should have six classrooms, offices, a meeting room for teaching staff, a laboratory, a sick room, a canteen, a storeroom and toilets.

The competition can be entered individually or in a team of up to five people. At least one member of the team should be under 35 years old.

Architectural competition "Tourist hostel on the mountain Hedgehog Water with restaurant and viewing terraces"

organizer: IDEANOVA Foundation

The IDEANOVA Foundation has announced a two-phase international architectural competition for the building of a tourist hostel on the mountain of Jeżowa Woda (Beskid Wyspowy) with a restaurant and viewing terraces. The deadline for registration is March 30, 2023.

purpose

The goal of the IDEANOVA Foundation, the organizer of the competition, is to stimulate creative imagination and initiate an intellectual experiment realized in the form of an artistically valuable spatial form, responding to the comprehensively understood needs of "thinking man". It is expected from the authors that the proposals for design solutions will be contextually, formally and content-wise adequate to the ideological assumptions of the competition and will serve to "discover" in time perspective, new ideas - useful and enriching the world of general human values.

The subject of the competition "Tourist hostel on the mountain Jeżowa Woda with restaurant and viewing terraces", is to develop an architectural concept of a tourist hostel located in the Beskid Wyspowy, on the mountain Jeżowa Woda. The designed object should be a place of modern character, with a form that looks into the distant future, while remaining in harmony with the surrounding nature. The highest floor should be above the treetops and be visible from all nearby peaks, yet dominate the landscape of the Island Beskid as little as possible.

The project should take into account the preservation of economic rationality, understood as a project to be carried out in the standard technologies currently used or innovative technologies, but at a cost that can be considered common sense for this type of building.

The competition organizer assures that it will make strenuous efforts to commission the Competition winner with a complete project to the extent necessary to obtain a valid building permit, and will make further efforts to obtain funds for the implementation of this project.

terms and conditions

The Competition has an open, two-stage character and is organized as part of the cyclical architectural competitions of the IDEANOVA Foundation.

The competition entry must be written in one of the following languages: Polish, English, Italian, French, German or Spanish (this applies to both the drawing and descriptive parts of the competition entries).

The competition is organized for architects, designers, as well as other artists (including university students) and mixed teams (consisting, for example, of the author of the concept and the author of the technical side of the project).

Registration of participants in the competition is carried out via a form on the website and confirmation of acceptance of the application.

The competition is divided into two stages. In the first stage of the competition, participantssubmit competition works, which are their design proposals for the Tourist Hostel facility, accompanied by descriptive documentation, with reference to the clearly specified theme and motif of the competition.

In the second stage , participants selected by the jury after the first stage (a maximum of five projects), after making a "development" of the project, in the form of a three-dimensional visualization and / or in the form of a video file, drawings and a descriptive part, submit it for evaluation. Development is understood as detailing with the necessary construction and material details and possible refinement of the form. At this stage, the organizer provides for the possibility of organizing consultations with the participation of experts and / or members of the Jury. The meeting will be held with full preservation of anonymity of the competition participants.

The Limanowa Municipality has issued legally binding Conditions of Development (WZ) for the construction of the shelter, so the competition concept must be in accordance with them, and meet all the imposed criteria. The investor's idea is to build an object with parameters far exceeding the required minimum specified in the regulations, concerning mountain shelters, while maintaining compliance with the Conditions of Development.

An important element of the concept should be a preliminary visualization of the lighting of the facility itself, as well as the lighting coming from the facility (mainly the highest viewing floor), which will emphasize its artistic vision, but at the same time will not interfere too much with the natural environment and will not create permanent "light pollution."

Theshelter on top of Hedgehog Water must meet the following conditions:

  • the maximum number of beds, with the dimensions of the building and individual floors imposed by the GM, but on the other hand, the personal comfort of tourists is important, so there must be a centering of these proportions,
  • The project may provide for men's dormitories and women's dormitories or other such solutions, but separate rooms (2- and 3-bed rooms) of the "3 stars +" hotel type must also be designed. Coming up with an innovative system that optimizes living space, but at the same time gives the impression of freedom, will be highly appreciated,
  • the project must provide for a public functional kitchen, communal bathrooms and a form of small spa,
  • the restaurant area including the kitchen should be suitable for banquets for 120 - 150 people,
  • the highest viewing floor, in addition to the obvious viewing function, must also be adapted for cafeteria and restaurant service during banquets (however, assuming that food is transported by elevator (second - cargo) from the kitchen at the main restaurant hall,
  • the top viewing floor should have a universal character, that is, it should also have the function of an exhibition hall, designed for meetings and visual (e.g., with the function of a planetarium) or give the possibility of adapting other functions, such as an amateur astronomical observatory. Competition participants may propose other functions,
  • the usable height of the top floor must be a minimum of 3.5 m clear,
  • the design of additional architectural features of the top floor, such as pivoting, or tilting or sliding roof, glazed floors or terraces, will be an additional advantage in the evaluation, as long as it is economically reasonable.
  • it is necessary to design a functional and fast elevator and convenient stairway or ramp communication, meeting the standard fire conditions for buildings of this height, and the requirements for accessibility for people with disabilities,
  • innovation of concept would be highly desirable here, due to the main goal of creating a timeless structure, but this must be done while optimizing costs.

It should be emphasized that in the first stage of the competition - the most important is the architectural and artistic vision, based on rational and economic considerations.

prizes

The total amount allocated for prizes is: from 6 thousand to 10 thousand euros.

The following prizes will be awarded in the Competition:

  • Main Prize - 5 thousand euros,
  • Audience Award - 1 thousand euros.
  • possible honorable mentions - a maximum of 4 honorable mentions, each with a maximum of 1,000 euros (according to the free decision and distribution made by the Jury, which also means that honorable mentions may not be awarded).

  • consistency of content and form,
  • artistic qualities,
  • timelessness of the architectural idea,
  • functional qualities,
  • adequate to the function and diversity of locations scale of the object and its details,

Architectural competition for the development of a concept for a complex of multi-family residential buildings with services at 30B 1 Sierpnia Street in Warsaw.

organizer: Capital City of Warsaw

The Capital City of Warsaw has announced a limited, one-stage competition for a complex of multi-family residential buildings with services at 30B 1 Sierpnia Street in Włochy. The deadline for submitting applications to participate is January 30 this year.

purpose

The object of the competition is to create an urban planning and architectural concept for a complex of multi-family residential buildings with services, consisting of:

  • communal apartments;
  • service premises located in the first floors of the buildings;
  • underground garages located under each building;
  • development of the site with parking spaces and internal roads;
  • neighborhood greenery.

The purpose of the competition is to select the urban-architectural concept that is the best in terms of functionality, economy, visual appearance, pro-environmental, energy-saving and reducing operating costs.

terms and conditions

The competition is a limited, one-stage competition. The Competition is recommended by SARP No. 28/R/2022, and the project is part of the Housing Program of the City of Warsaw.

The Competition is open to participants who can demonstrate their experience in duly completing, within the last 5 years before the deadline for submitting applications to participate in the competition, at least one multi-discipline design documentation, including at least: construction design, detailed designs and a work estimate, on the basis of which a valid construction permit was obtained for the construction of a building or a complex of multi-family residential buildings with a total usable area of at least 10,000m2.

Participants must demonstrate that at the stage of performing the service on the basis of the competition work, the team will include at least one person with a construction license to design or professional qualifications in the following specialties: architectural, structural and civil engineering, road engineering, installation in the field of networks, installations and equipment of heating, ventilation, gas, water and sewage systems, installation in the field of networks, installations and equipment of electrical and electric power, installation in the field of networks, installations and equipment of telecommunications, landscape architecture.

The scope of the study includes the site located in Warsaw, in the District of Italy, at 1 Sierpnia 30B Street. The area is flat
and developed with disused post-industrial buildings (former production facilities of Warsowin company), as well as housing estate surface parking lots and internal roads. Transport service is provided from the south side from 1 Sierpnia Street through internal roads. The development area is directly adjacent: from the north with the railroad area - railroad line No. 8 Warszawa Zachodnia - Kraków Główny, from the east and south-west with multi-family residential buildings and green areas, and from the north-west with sports and recreation areas - M. Kotański Park.

Thearea covered by the competition study is not subject to a local zoning plan. The project will be implemented on the basis of a decision on development conditions, which will be obtained on the basis of the winning competition work.

The design solutions adopted in the competition works should allow for phasing of the investment in terms of buildings and independent construction of internal roads with above-ground parking lots. Each stage should include a residential building along with the necessary landscaping and provision of an adequate number of parking spaces for cars.

New European Bauhaus 2023 competition

organizer: European Commission

The 3rd edition of the international architectural competition New European Bauhaus Prizes organized by the European Commission has been launched. The 2023 prizes will recognize 15 exemplary initiatives combining sustainability, aesthetics and inclusivity - the three core values of the New European Bauhaus. {More}
The New European Bauhaus is an international initiative by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen that combines sustainability with aesthetics, style and quality of life by incorporating the needs of different social groups. It aims to overcome global challenges through action at the local level. The initiative was created to encourage all Europeans to think about a sustainable and inclusive future, beautiful to the eye, mind and soul, and to take action to make this vision a reality.

goal

The initiative is now in its third year with an international competition seeking projects that reflect the values of the New European Bauhaus—sustainability, aesthetics and inclusivity—to inspire the movement as a whole. To mark the European Year of Skills, the edition will include a competition on education and science. For the first time, submissions from the Western Balkan countries will also be accepted.

terms and conditions

In 2023, awards will be given for completed projects and concepts developed by young artists in four categories:

  • Back to Nature (inspiring examples of projects relating to aesthetics, sustainability and social inclusion that bring people and communities closer to nature, contribute to theregenerating natural ecosystems and preventing the loss of biodiversity, or provide an impetus to rethink one's relationship with nature from a perspective that puts life, rather than humans, at the center),
  • Reclaiming a sense of belonging (inspiring examples of projects that relate to aesthetics, sustainability and inclusion that celebrate diversity and bring a sense of belonging, giving character and meaning to places, communities or commodities),
  • Giving priority to places and people who need it most (inspiring examples of projects that relate to aesthetics, sustainability and social inclusion to address the needs of territories, communities and individuals that require urgent attention due to specific economic, social or physical aspects),
  • The need to ensure long-term life-cycle thinking in industrial ecosystems (inspiring examples of projects referring to aesthetics, sustainability and social inclusion, contributing to the transformation of industrial ecosystems towards more sustainable practices on a closed-loop basis with relevant social aspects).


In each category, candidates can choose one of three parallel competitions:

  • Competition A: "Champions of the New European Bauhaus."—Targeting already developed and completed projects with clear, positive results,
  • Competition B: "Rising Stars of the New European Bauhaus."—devoted to concepts submitted by talented young artists and creatives under the age of 30. Submitted concepts may be at various stages of development, from an idea with a concrete plan to the prototype stage,
  • Competition C: "Champions of the New European Bauhaus—Education"—referring to initiatives dedicated to education and learning. In this competition, both completed projects and initiatives that have reached a minimum level of advancement can be submitted.

The project submission must indicate how the project fits into the three main initiatives of the New European Bauhaus and include an innovation analysis of the submitted work. Applications can be submitted within one category and only in one competition. One person may submit several applications, provided they cover different examples or different concepts.

evaluation stages

Selection of winners will be carried out by a team that includes representatives of the Commission's services. The competition is divided into five stages—as part of Stage I, the commission will evaluate the correctness of the submitted applications (February 2023), in Stage II the Commission services will select external experts to evaluate the applications (March-April 2023). Stage III will see the publication of the finalists' applications and the start of public voting (May 2023), in Stage IV the pre-selected entries will be evaluated by a nine-member jury of experts, and in the final stage, Stage V, the competition will be decided (May-June 2023).

In each category and competition, a jury of experts will select one winner each (12 winners in total). In each competition, one additional winner will be selected by public vote in four categories (making a total of three awards by public vote).

The next edition of the international design competition Make me! for young designers at the Lodz Design Festival has been launched.

Purpose

The purpose of the competition is to forecast the most important trends, bold ideas, and support young designers. Held since 2008, the competition is addressed not only to designers, but also to adepts of art and design faculties. Dedicated to all those who are ignited to the design process by an impulse triggered by a perceived need or problem. The competition is open to everyone. The competition is also open to projects created within 3D designs or finished models, provided that a prototype is prepared for the competition exhibition at the Łódź Design Festival.

The National Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning has announced the second Polish edition of the Union of Architects' international Golden Cubes Awards competition designed for individuals, schools, organizations and institutions involved in general architectural education. {More}

The UIA Architecture & Children Work Program Golden Cubes Awards competition is organized by the UIA Architecture & Children Work program. The organizer of the national preliminaries of the competition in the Republic of Poland is the National Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning.

As we read in the preamble to the regulations - The future will be built by our children. It is important to prepare them for it. Increasing their awareness of the built environment, architecture, urban planning and sustainable development is a priority today. Expanding their knowledge in these areas will enable them to become responsible citizens who will in the future co-create political, economic and social strategies that shape cities and their own surroundings. Tools to increase aesthetic and architectural awareness should be given to children while they are still open-minded and imaginative. Later, they will use them to achieve a balance between reality and their dreams of an ideal space. The Union Internationale des Architectes Architecture & Children Work Program Golden Cubes Awards are designed for those who prepare children and young people for this task. They also help support emerging educational projects. The urgent and fundamental challenge is to imagine what the cities of the future will look like. We should start educating their future creators now.

purpose

The purpose of the competition is to encourage and support those who lay the foundations of architectural culture and help children and young people, from school age to adulthood, to understand architectural processes and the spatial shaping of the built environment. The presentation of the most valuable educational projects is intended to recognize and appreciate the work of educators, animators, popularizers, but above all to create a space for dialogue and exchange of experiences in the subject of architectural education in the broadest sense.

terms and conditions

Educators, animators, architects, teachers and representatives of cultural institutions, foundations and associations, as well as people involved in the popularization of architecture and urbanism through various media are invited to participate in the competition.

            Architectural competition for the concept of development of the former Flora market in Jelenia Góra

            organizer: City of Jelenia Góra

            A one-stage competition is underway for an architectural concept for the development of the former Flora market area in the center of Jelenia Góra. The competition includes an implementation and ideation part, and the deadline for submitting applications to participate is December 1 this year.

            The competition was developed by A2P2 architecture & planning studio

            purpose

            The competition task is to create an architectural concept for the area of the former Flora market in Jelenia Góra. The aim of the competition is to obtain an architectural concept, the best in terms of program and space, social, environmental and economic aspects, optimally utilizing the potential and conditions of the area , and meeting both the expectations of the local community, as well as fitting in with contemporary trends in urban space design.

            The area of the former market is to become a new meeting place for residents and foster the development of centralizing functions in the area.

            terms and conditions

            The competition is a one-stage, limited competition.

            A participant in the competition can be: a natural person, a legal person, an organizational unit without legal personality, both domestic and foreign.

            The competition consists of two parts:

            • realization - in the form of a public space, including an area of publicly accessible greenery, with possible provision of space for local commerce,
            • ideational - used to determine the guidelines for the local zoning plan (it is allowed to propose cubic buildings). It is not planned for implementation, but will serve to determine the guidelines for the local development plan.

            The results of the competition will form the basis for public consultations on the future of the former Flora area, will serve to establish the guidelines of the new local development plan for the entire study area; will be implemented in terms of public space.

            The study area consists of five plots of land and is located in downtown Jelenia Gora and borders the Old Town to the west. The total area is 1.7212 hectares (more than the Jelenia Góra market). The study area is located at the junction between the well-maintained, invested center of the city and its degraded parts of a more peripheral character, with weak links to the inner city. Among the goals of the competition are to strengthen these links and to select the program in such a way that the new development of the former Flora site becomes a space for the integration of residents.

            guidelines for the development of the implementation part

            The subject of the project is the redevelopment of the area of the former Flora city market aimed at creating a public modern market with a parking lot and an adjacent attractive recreational green area.

            The priority element of the redevelopment of the former Flora site, earmarked for implementation, is a new public space planned foruse for the development of local entrepreneurship, as well as recreation and intergenerational integration. It is up to the contestants to decide on the scale of local commerce possible in the development area and the form of infrastructure provided for this purpose. Acceptable include:

            • a paved area serving as a square on a daily basis, with the possibility of occasional use as, for example, a flea market, a place to sell vegetables and fruits from local producers (directly from a delivery truck) or a place for cyclical events held in Jelenia Góra,
            • a larger covered area with market counters,
            • commercial and service pavilions, including catering, integrated into the greenery.

            It is crucial to provide basic technical infrastructure (toilets, points for connecting electricity, running water, etc.). Provision should be made for the space to be multifunctional, allowing for a variety of uses, e.g., the local trade area outside of market days could be a space used for rollerblading/skateboarding or playing basketball (appropriate surfaces should be selected).

            The site is to foster intergenerational integration, including providing both opportunities for relaxation, which includes observing urban life, and active recreation. The green area should include greenery of varying height and character, including evergreens. The concept can refer to the site's past - baroque ornamental gardens, but also local plant cultivation (understood today as urban gardening) and trade in local products. Greenery should provide shade in summer, as well as prevent heat islands and introduce a healthy microclimate. It is necessary to provide shaded areas (with buildings, trees or elements of public space furnishings), but at the same time it is recommended to maintain a well-sunlit part of the area.

            It is permissible to introduce water-related development elements, such as fountains or ponds, while it is advisable to integrate them into the landscaping as part of the blue-green infrastructure system (rain gardens, retention ditches, etc.) and to choose solutions that do not generate excessive maintenance costs.

            The space must be accessible to all, especially to residents representing every age group, health status and social status. It is not permissible to provide only "paid" seating (in food gardens).

            The space should include, among other things, the following equipment and furnishings:

            • a street water dispenser with drinking water,
            • a public toilet,
            • benches that meet accessibility requirements (with armrests and backrests),
            • informal seating areas,
            • bicycle racks,
            • a toilet for dogs.

            guidelines for the development of the ideational part

            The ideational part includes the development of the entire development area and may provide for development. Although conservation recommendations do not include larger cubic objects except for pavilions referring to the site's past, they can be included in the competition concept (idea part). The development is to be the background, defining the spatial framework of the new public space and greenery. It should be planned with respect for the architectural and urban heritage of Jelenia Góra.

            Since the former Flora area is an intermediate zone between the very center of the city and the degraded part of the downtown, it should be developed in such a way that it does not constitute a barrier, but allows integration of these areas. It should be assumed that in the future, due to its attractive location, low-intensity industrial buildings located south of the study area, within the urban quarter, may be replaced by investments of a downtown character. The concepts proposed by the competition participants should take into account this condition and allow freedom of development and land use on these plots.

            It is recommended to establish services in the first floors and link them to the designed public space. Service premises should be planned as flexible, capable of assuming various functions: both commercial (stores, service outlets) and public (e.g. library, nursery, senior citizen's club, community activity center). On the upper floors, both service functions (offices, accommodation functions, other services) and residential functions are allowed. It is recommended to plan a mix of centralizing functions typical of downtowns.

            Parking spaces integrated with the function, possibly street parking spaces. It is necessary to plan spaces for persons with a parking card, in a number not less than that prescribed by law, conveniently located in relation to the functions proposed in the study area. Given the frequent illegal and chaotic parking in urban commercial areas, it is necessary to propose architectural solutions integrated into the concept to prevent this negative phenomenon. However, the introduction of posts should be avoided, using other landscaping and amenities. The parking ratios specified in the current Study should be applied, while it is permissible to establish a certain number of additional public parking spaces. It is recommended to provide parking in underground garage halls. Particular attention should be paid to their extent in relation to the contours of the planned buildings to allow for tree plantings in the planned public space.

            It isnecessary to provide bicycle parking spaces. It is recommended to ensure security, among other things, with the help of neighborhood watch and general "Secured by Design" principles.

            It is important that the operating costs of the implementation part of the competition be as low as possible. It is recommended to integrate economic and pro-environmental goals in this regard (e.g., use of energy-efficient lighting fixtures, flower meadows instead of lawns requiring regular maintenance, etc.).

            The project should include environmentally, socially and economically sustainable solutions, including those that combat climate change:

            • an emphasis on the use of sustainable modes of transportation, especially walking and cycling,
            • selection of a program and form allowing the development of downtown Jelenia Gora in accordance with the concept of a fifteen-minute city,
            • use of the advantages of the plot to, among other things, provide the possibility of passive or energy-efficient construction (compact blocks, location on the plot in relation to the sides of the world),
            • use of renewable and environmentally friendly building materials,
            • retention of rainwater on their own land,
            • avoiding the formation of heat islands, ensuring the maintenance of the health and comfort of users, including those with special needs, i.e., providing shaded rest areas, among other things,
            • preventing social exclusion and working toward achieving a so-called social mix (e.g., by combining public and private housing within the concept, or, for example, ideas for forms of multi-generational housing),
            • proposing the use of alternative sources of energy, such as photovoltaic cells (as a solution to be later agreed upon by the conservation services due to possible exposure in the conservation zone),
            • energy-efficient light sources and no light pollution,
            • others, to be clarified in the competition concept.

            Detailed guidelines can be found in the appendices to the regulations, downloadable here.

            The scenario of the permanent exhibition at the Museum of the Battle of Warsaw 1920 should be characterized by an attempt to reconcile the traditional exhibition system with contemporary trends of transferring the narrative to the digital world. Accordingly, the visitor should be able to discover the content on their own through interaction and experience.

            The exhibition will be designed to tell the story of the Battle of Warsaw 1920, arising from the context of the struggle of the Polish nation with its eastern neighbor to maintain statehood or periodic uprisings, building statehood after the period of partition in the following areas: political, military, local government, social, seen also through the prism of international contacts with countries with friendly, neutral or hostile attitudes towards Poland. For the organizers, it is important to maintain chronology, exposing the most important events of international and, in some cases, local importance.

            The exhibition will feature three-dimensional monuments, as well as two-dimensional monuments with preservation rules.
            It will be complemented by replicas and copies of the monuments, which the WP Museum has in limited numbers. The exhibition will be complemented by multimedia to convey additional content.

            The purpose of the exhibition will be:

            • arouse interest in the subject of the Battle of Warsaw 1920 - both from a military, political and regional perspective,
            • promote the idea that it was the "18th decisive battle in the history of the world" that stopped the expansion of communism in Europe for two decades,
            • education with emphasis on emotional acquisition of knowledge,

            The competition for the permanent exhibition includes the design of two floors: 1st floor and staircase and 2nd floor.
            The exhibition will require a variety of display cases in terms of form, resulting from the conditions of use. Showcases for museum artifacts must be adapted to the exhibition and meet conservation requirements.

            purpose

            The goal of the competition, as we read in the regulations, is to obtain the best sustainable programmatic and spatial solution for the area after the Edmund Szyc Stadium in Poznań using natural natural conditions, because, as the organizers explain, the natural changes that have taken place in the area covered by the competition undermine the validity of the provisions of the current planning documents for the area.

            terms and conditions

            The competition is a limited, two-stage study competition. The subject of stage I is a study - a design concept, and stage II is a detailed urban planning concept.
            The competition task is to develop an urban design concept for the development of the areas located at Dolna Wilda, Królowej Jadwigi, Droga Dębińska and O. Mariana Żelazka in Poznań, covering mainly the area after the former Edmund Szyc stadium (an area of about 46 ha).
            The winning work, as we read in the regulations, will be used to carry out work on concepts, plans and projects for the development of the areas covered by the competition work, as well as the development of a project or projects of local spatial development plans, possibly also a project to amend the study of conditions anddirections of spatial development of the City of Poznań and their adoption by the Poznań City Council, and will also constitute auxiliary material for the municipal units for carrying out any analyses concerning the areas covered by the competition, in particular urban planning analyses carried out as part of administrativeproceedings .

            The Leszno District Museum, in cooperation with the Poznan branch of the Association of Polish Architects, has announced a competition for the modernization and reconstruction of the corner, two-story building of the Old Octhouse for the purpose of arranging a new museum building in its spaces. {More}

            The Leszno District Museum, in cooperation with the Poznan branch of the Association of Polish Architects, has announced a competition for the modernization and reconstruction of the corner two-story building of the Old Octarium for the purpose of arranging a new museum building in its spaces.

            purpose

            The purpose of the competition, as we read in the regulations, is to select the concept for the spatial arrangement in the center of Leszno and to obtain the best architectural, spatial, functional-utility and composition concept for the new headquarters of the District Museum combined with the renovation of the existing building of the Old Octownia - taking into account the context of the existing surroundings - in the material, cultural and social sense.

            The museum building, according to the assumption of the organizers, should have an interestingly solved function, and at the same time be an exceptional building, beautiful and strongly associated with the place, a new sign of the city.

            terms and conditions

            The competition is a one-stage, limited competition.

            The subject of the competition is the execution of a coherent, comprehensive urban-architectural and functional-utilitarian concept for the modernization and reconstruction of the Old Octownia building, together with its expansion for the needs of the District Museum, located in the center of Leszno, at Jana Pawła II Avenue - one of the main thoroughfares of the city - and Bolesława Chrobrego Street with a quiet character.

            The planned investment should become a city and cultural center, provide proper conditions for employees and museum collections, be accessible to people with disabilities, and include public functions, such as a store or café. As the organizers of the competition emphasize, the building should aim for energy neutrality as much as possible, be an example of sustainable development and be part of the zero waste trend.

            For more information, see the competition regulations.

            Any configuration is allowed in the design - the lamps can be placed both on the walls and on, or under the ceiling, or placed on the floor, mounted in structural elements or fixtures. It is necessary to justify the choice and principle of creating the proposed system solutions, provide for the possibility of their variability and transformability. Modular solutions can be proposed. It is necessary to associate system solutions with the lighting function they are intended to perform, keeping in mind the lighting and electrical requirements.

            The designer should take into account not only the visual effect, impression and lighting function, simplicity of construction, but also safety of use related to the distribution of the luminous flux, as well as resulting from the electrical supply. LED light sources should be used as the light source, and a method of power supply should be provided.

            The competition design requires:

            • a general explanation of the principle of construction and operation and the material or materials used,
            • explanation of the assumptions for the creation of the product family,
            • specifying the types of light sources,
            • specifying the method of power supply.

            The project should go beyond the limits of typical thinking about the role and possibilities of lighting surfaces, spaces and objects in architecture, interior design and design.

            When designing and creating, lighting solutions from KANLUX should be used, i.e. light sources with appropriate lighting and electrical parameters.

            Competition "MOVABLE HOUSE - Home of the Modern Nomad".

            organizer: Polish Lighting Industry Association

            A new edition of the competition organized by the Polish Lighting Industry Association has been launched. This time the challenge is to design a mobile home on wheels. Participants must remember to analyze light and its impact on the design. {More}

            purpose

            The purpose of the competition "MOVABLE HOUSE - Home of the Modern Nomad" is to inspire the treatment of light as an important element in the shaping of architectural space, as well as an interest in LED technology and its possibilities in the creation of luminaires and lighting systems.

            The subject of the competition entry is a mobile home on wheels. As we read in the rules of the competition - it can be an adaptation of an existing vehicle into a running house, or building it from scratch using the built-in chassis offered by automotive companies. However, it must be an individual living space ready to live in right away.

            The jury expects unconventional design solutions using specific construction solutions (i.e., specific types of chassis) and meeting technical parameters and vehicle equipment regulations.

            An important role in the designed MOVABLE HOUSE is also to be played by the analysis of the impact of light, both natural and artificial, on the character and interior and exterior space of the house on wheels, to produce a specific style in it.

            terms and conditions

            The competition is an open, international, one-stage competition. The organizer is the Polish Lighting Industry Association, and the co-organizers are: Goczołowie Architekci Studio Autorskie, OVO Grąbczewscy, SOMA Agency Architects. The competition is under the patronage of Architecture & Business.

            The competition is aimed at people involved in architecture, art, industrial design, as well as all other fields of science. They can participate in the competition individually or in teams. Teams can be interdisciplinary.

            The designed architectural and spatial solution "MOVABLE HOUSE - home of the modern Nomad" can be located in any geographic location, climate and culture. It is necessary to determine the sides of the world, if it plays an important role in the project.

            The project can be purely theoretical in nature. It is important to present the thinking and reasons for subsequent creative design decisions, as well as to present the detail. The design should consider the function of the lighting in the designed solution and, if relevant, in its immediate surroundings. It is also important to keep in mind the safety of use related to the distribution of the luminous flux, as well as the safety resulting from the connection to the electrical supply.

            The project requires:

            • a general explanation of the principle of construction of the structure, layout of rooms and internal development, distribution of internal installations, determination of the materials used,
            • an explanation of the lighting used to illuminate the interior and, insofar as it results from the construction, in its immediate surroundings, the way it is used and the electricity supply,
            • when designing, use lighting solutions from KANLUX with appropriate lighting parameters and decorative qualities.

            awards

            The submitted works will be evaluated in terms of: compliance with the theme of the competition, attractiveness and innovativeness of the proposed solutions, architectural, design and visual qualities, legibility of the idea.
