FAQ – TACTICAL URBANISM NOW!
The jury will evaluate the submitted proposals according to the following principles:
– Originality of the concept;
– Flexibility and multi-functionality;
– Creative regeneration of the context;
– Social impact of the proposal;
– Use of “Tactical” techniques;
– Graphic representation;
Projects that express a special sensitivity towards tactical design and quality architectural solutions will be highly appreciated. Reaching deep technical-constructive details will not be considered extremely important in the evaluation process.
After the submission deadline (29.11.2020), the jury will have 21 days to evaluate all the submitted proposals one by one and select the best ones. There won’t be a second submission round.
Should the design proposals be built projects or can I apply with a non-built project?
In this competition it is not necessary that the proposals have been built, projects of all kinds can be submitted. Tactical Urbanism Now! is a design competition of ideas opened to everybody for editorial purposes. All the awarded proposals will be transmitted to architectural magazines and websites and could be hosted in international exhibitions.
If I pay the registration fee today I have to submit my project the same day? Or I still have time until the deadline?
The final deadline for the project’s submission is November 29th, regardless of when the registration is made (this means that if you register today you have time until the 29th of November to submit your proposal). An early registration only guarantees a discounted price.
