Ideas contest launched for Salerno antenna park

  • Comment

The City of Salerno in Italy has launched an international ideas competition to create a new landmark antenna and public park above the city

The winning team will receive £10,000 and a commission to regenerate Bellaria Hill which is currently home to a number of telecommunications antennas.

According to the competition brief: ‘The intent is to create a new public park and a functional and safe telecommunications antenna that substitutes the currently numerous, unsafe and obsolete steel structures disseminated along the ridge of the hill.’

It continued: ‘The new integrated telecommunications antenna should eliminate the negative impact of the existing structures by grouping them together in a single element-support-landmark, a lightweight and minimalist structure that mitigates any form of pollution (visual, environmental, electromagnetic).’

Broadcasting equipment for television, telephone and radio; smart sensors and integrated lighting should all be included in the tower scheme.

Proposals will also be expected to focus on upgrading the park’s 198 metre-high upper belvedere, the nearby 5,000m lower belvedere and visitor car parks.

Jury members include Salerno’s director of urban planning Bianca De Roberto and Massimo Alvisi of Rome-based AlvisiKirimoto + Partners.

The competition language is Italian and the deadline for submissions is 8 January.
