Venice Biennale launches future city competition

  • Comment

An international competition to design 'the city of the third millennium' has been launched as part of next year's Venice Architecture Biennale.

The competition is free and open to all architects and students, and it reflects the theme of the Biennale - 'The City: Less Aesthetics, More Ethics'.Participants are asked to express their 'interpretations of the city of the third millennium'. Ideas and designs need not relate to a specific place; instead, they might deal with the 'system of relationships and structures which define contemporary living'.All the work submitted, say the organisers, should go beyond 'mere aestheticism'.

Entrants to the competition are asked to send an email to concorso@labiennale.com by 31 December. This should be accompanied by four digital images of 800 x 600 pixels in 72 dpi and JPG or GIF format, and a brief biographical outline of individual or group participants.

All the material will be displayed on-line and a selection of projects will be exhibited at the Biennale. Six special awards - three for architects, three for students - will be announced when the Biennale opens in June 2000.

The selection committee includes Peter Cook, Greg Lynn, Paul Virilio and Massimiliano Fuksas. Further details: tel 0039041 5226514, fax 0039041 5210038 or see the website at www.labiennale.org
