The "REVIVING: MINES" PARK Shandong organized by Non Architecture Competitions in collaboration with ARQ, now is calling for entries! Non Architecture (NonA) is looking for creative proposals that would go beyond standardized models for development, informing local authorities with new ways to approach such a project. Particular emphasis is posed on the issue of the dismissed mines, which constitute a unique feature but also a great challenge.
Participants to the competition are asked to thinking out of the box solutions and to come up with creative proposals that would go beyond standardized models for development, informing local authorities with new ways to approach such a project. Particular emphasis is posed on the issue of the dismissed mines, which constitute a unique feature but also a great challenge. How can the ecological and spatial damage be mitigated and transformed into new value?
Using only 3 drawings and absolute freedom in program, participants are asked to present ideas to revive the Shandong Mines Park by capitalizing on the characteristic features of the site. Proposals can be pavilions, buildings, landscape design, urban plans, strategic visions or any other creative form of spatial design. The scale of the projects can range from furniture design up to master-planning. Each project can focus on one detailed feature of the park, or it can provide a comprehensive strategy.
Consequentially, the context area is approximately specified within the east side of the Zichuan district boundaries, but there is no given intervention location. Projects can focus on the site as a whole, or only relate to the context of the Mines Park in an abstract way. They can define basic principles, or they can directly address selected spots and zones within the given area. This includes rural villages as much as mine quarries or natural zones.
It is up to the participants to decide which specific conditions to address in their proposals.
Winners will be announced on 22 November, 2020.
There is no entry fee to participate!
It's free to enter!
