Contest seeks ideas to regenerate landfill in Rome

An international ideas contest has been launched to regenerate the Malagrotta Landfill in Rome

Open to students, graduates and young architects, the contest seeks future visions for the enormous municipal landfill and its surrounding areas. The enormous, 240 hectare dumping ground closed last year.

According to the brief: ‘The aim is to open a humanistic, scientific and civic discussion concerning a sensitive environmental issue in the city of Rome.’

It continued: ‘The need to develop ideas and strategies to investigate, forecast and manage its future is one of the chief priorities of the Municipality of Rome and of the surrounding neighbourhoods; therefore we encourage proposals from interdisciplinary teams to define perspectives that might have a relevant impact on the new approach for solving such an environmental problem.’

The project is supported by the Sapienza University of Rome and the city mayor’s Department for the Environment, Food and Waste.

The five best proposals will feature in an upcoming research publication.     

Digital submissions must include a single A3 display board and 500 word explanation.

The competition language is English and the deadline for submissions is 15 September.
