In times of social and environmental distress, the world is increasingly more aware of the significance of open space and the issues of urbanisation. Qualities of urban sites are lost due to various social changes, rising parking needs, inappropriate design, neglect, and, unfortunately still – war. The competition is looking for multidisciplinary solutions to spatial issues concerning urbanisation.

Streetlife Design Competition calls students, young landscape architects, architects, industrial designers, artists, visual artists to submit concepts for the redesign of lost open spaces.

Pick a lost site and redesign it.

Lost sites are all around us. Fortunately, there are designers like you who know how to improve them. In times of social and environmental distress, the world is increasingly more aware of the significance of open space and the issues of urbanisation. Qualities of urban sites are lost due to various social changes, rising parking needs, inappropriate design and neglect. The competition is looking for multidisciplinary solutions to spatial issues concerning urbanisation. From urban centres to residential housing on the margins, the competition seeks ideas to improve the quality of urban outdoors and challenges modes of urbanisation.

There is no site chosen by the competition organizers and the winning proposal will not be built. Teams need to pick their own lost site and make a design for improving it. Sites can be privately owned, but must assume public accessibility and must not exceed the size of 1 hectare (2,4 acres).

Your chosen must be located in European or North American territories: Canada, United States, United Kingdom and the following countries of the European continent: Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine.

The winning project will be an innovative and strong conceptual work that successfully deal with several spatial issues where the conditions allow: memory of the site / genius loci / sustainability / urban biodiversity / climate resiliency / inclusive social space / empowerment of communities / sustainable mobility …

The winning project will not be built. However, participants may choose to work with local communities and hand them their project to empower their ambitions to improve public spaces in their immediate vicinity.
