An international design competition has been launched to masterplan an 18.7 hectare residential development in Prishtina, Kosovo
The ‘Kodrina’ competition – backed by contractor NTN Tregtia and the Municipality of Prishtina – seeks proposals for an undeveloped plot in the city’s south-eastern ‘Mati 1’ neighbourhood.
According to the brief: ‘The purpose of this competition is to find an original solution and a visionary concept for the “Kodrina” complex and through urban design and construction of new infrastructure to achieve the creation of housing quality and sustained urban life in conjunction with the existing features of the area.’
International participants are encouraged to team up with local firms to compete for the project. Teams should include an architect, urban planner or landscape architect, civil engineer, transport engineer and environmental engineer.
Applicants must first submit a CV and outline their methodological approach and vision for the competition site.
Between three and seven shortlisted teams will then be invited to draw up conceptual masterplans during the competition’s second stage.
Concepts will be judged on their creativity, feasibility and relationship with the site’s surrounding context.
The winner – set to be announced on 24 February – will receive around £32,000 and be invited to negotiate for the design contract.
Two £7,000 runner-up prizes will also be awarded and the remaining finalists will receive approximately £5,000 each.
The deadline for applications is 25 November.
