Ar­chi­tects De­sign Com­pe­ti­tion Re­sults

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Trans­port Malta has re­leased the re­sults of the Ar­chi­tects De­sign Com­pe­ti­tion, or­gan­ised by the Au­thor­ity and the Kamra tal-Per­iti, as part of the Euro­pean Mo­bil­ity Ac­tions 2016.

The com­pe­ti­tion was launched for in­ter­ested pro­fes­sional ar­chi­tects and ar­chi­tec­tural stu­dents to sub­mit de­signs fea­tur­ing in­no­va­tive, sus­tain­able ur­ban spa­ces and fu­ture sus­tain­able mo­bil­ity so­lu­tions for a given lo­cal­ity. The sub­mit­ted de­signs had to ad­dress one or more themes as sug­gested below.

Cri­te­ria were set for as­sess­ing and eval­u­at­ing the de­signs sub­mit­ted, one of which will be the im­ple­ment abil­ity of the de­sign. The de­signs there­fore had to be cus­tom made for a par­tic­u­lar area (town/vil­lage/re­gion) of Malta, ac­cord­ing to these themes:

Theme 1 - Sus­tain­able Mo­bil­ity in­clud­ing shared mo­bil­ity, green in­fra­struc­ture, al­ter­na­tive trans­port, low car­bon trans­port.

Theme 2 – Green Ur­ban Cen­ters in­clud­ing shared pub­lic space, green ar­eas, re­new­able en­ergy.

The qual­ity of the sub­mis­sions had to be to the level that they can be im­ple­mented.

The sub­mis­sions had to in­clude lay­out plans and vi­su­als.

Par­tic­i­pants were cat­e­gorised in two:

In­di­vid­ual ar­chi­tects / com­pa­nies

Stu­dents fol­low­ing a de­gree course in BCs Built En­vi­ron­ment, M. En­gi­neer­ing and M. Ar­chi­tec­ture.

Whilst con­grat­u­lat­ing the win­ners, the or­gan­is­ers thanked all of the en­trants for their cre­ative sub­mis­sions to this com­pe­ti­tion and the high level of work and de­tail sub­mit­ted, in­clud­ing the sub­mis­sions made in the Stu­dents Cat­e­gory.
