'Unrestricted Access' launched on redundant military bases
[Registration must be completed by 31 March 2012] Launched by Architecture for Humanity, this open ideas competition seeks proposals for redundant military bases
From Gaddafi’s Compound to Cuban missile sites, the contest targets decommissioned military bases around the globe, with concepts sought for how they could be re-used by the public.
With the number of sites thought to be on the increase feasible plans for the future of these areas are sought with an emphasis on granting public access. Partnership with communities surrounding a site is encouraged to find local needs.
Open to students and practising architects entrants should select a local site or select from a provided list of worldwide sites complete with the necessary resources.
