The international competition destined principally for graduates and students of Architecture, Engineering, Design, Urban Planning, Green Areas and Landscape Design and the Fine Arts Academies, who do not necessarily hold a professional title, and with the hopes that multidisciplinary groups will be created embracing all the arts, science and technical disciplines that can best interpret the theme proposed each time.

The Competition aspires to have a realistically feasible project that will restore vitality to the district and aims to select the best proposals of an urban and landscape project relevant to the competition zone, foreseeing the establishment of a university campus with residences, study zones and laboratories, green areas and sports areas that will go to complete the planned building of residential and commercial buildings.

The objective is urban requalification of the zone that unites the ex TECUMSEH area (circa 40.000 m2) and the CASTELLO DI MIRAFIORI area (circa 30.000 m2) starting from the indications present in the “Notes about the Planning” document attached to the Competition Notice.
