Ukrainian city launches play spaces design contest

  • Comment

The City Council of Ivano-Frankivsk has launched an international ideas contest for a series of child-friendly civic spaces across the historic Western Ukraine city

Open to professionals and students, the contest seeks proposals for new children’s facilities at five city centre sites.

Submissions will be judged on their creativity, compliance with requirements for children’s playgrounds and response to the urban context.

Ivano-Frankivsk was founded as a fortress town at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains during the seventeenth century.

Electronic entries must include no more than three A4 pages of text description – covering ideas, materials and cost – and three A1 boards illustrating the scheme.

Supported by the non-governmental organization’s Moms Carpathian and Warm city, the competition is anonymous and the languages are Ukrainian and English.

The winner – set to be announced in June – will receive around £1,400. A second place prize of around £900 and third place prize worth approximately £450 will also be awarded.

Judges include Ivano-Frankivsk chief architect Volodymyr Haidar and Moms Carpathian head Mariana Vershynina.

The deadline for registration is 15 May.
