Abstract

City of Ivrea (Turin Province - Italy)
Open competition for ideas on renovating Castle Square and the settings of the Historical Carnival events in the city.
International competition for ideas “Ivrea Carnival 365® colour the city: the Carnival settings and routes” on renovating Castle Square and the settings of the Historical Carnival in the city.

The “Ivrea Carnival 365® colour the city” project was set up so that the places in which the Historical Carnival of Ivrea is re-enacted can be recognized throughout the year, in order to make the city a tourist attraction and promote trade through the event with which it is identified today.
With this international competition for ideas, the City Council and the Historical Carnival of Ivrea Foundation aim to attract ideas from qualified designers in order to find the most appropriate measures to be taken to permanently identify the places and settings of the Historical Carnival in the city. The designs should therefore be addressed at refurbishing the old town centre, those areas in which the Historical Carnival takes place, starting from Castle Square.
Identifying the settings of the Historical Carnival may involve structural transformations (Castle Square) and/or simple urban/commercial refurbishing (Castle Square and other areas and routes used during the Historical Carnival).
Participation in the competition is reserved to professionals with a degree in Architecture or Engineering or equivalent qualifications, registered according to the legislation of their country.

Awards: 1st place €15,000, 2nd place €7,000, 3rd place €4,000, two special mentions of €2,000 in the design sector.

Assessment criteria.

  • Composition and formal aspects of the overall Castle Square project (max 25 points);
  • Composition and aspects of refurbishing Castle Square (max 39 points);
  • Refurbishing of other places and routes used during Carnival (max 36 points).

Entries should be received by 12.00 on 19/11/2010.
