Open call, der opfordrer arkitekter og landskabarkitekter til at indsende ambitiøse, innovative og kreative ideer, der bidrager til socialt bæredygtige naboskaber for generationer i fremtiden. Konkurrencen er international: Derfor er al information og kommunikation på engelsk.
Neighbourhoods for Generations are places that invite for sociability and mutual support, where people of all ages are seen and valued as members of their stairwell, housing block, and neighbourhood.
Due to demographic changes and urbanisation, cities and neighbourhoods are facing multiple, converging challenges including a lack of affordable housing, an increase in social segregation, poor access to health and social services, and worsening rates of mental health. How can we form more socially sustainable and affordable places for people of all ages to live and rethink the way we plan, organise, live and interact in our cities?
We call on people of all professions, backgrounds, and levels of seniority to submit ideas contributing to the development of the Neighbourhoods for Generations concept. From academic groups and departments, to urban strategy and design firms, housing start ups, public service providers and social support services, to name a few, we encourage interdisciplinary submissions from all relevant sectors. We encourage fresh proposals, but also welcome innovative ideas and concepts from other contexts.
The four most innovative ideas submitted will be selected as winners of the competition. In addition up to 10 ideas will receive honourable mentions on the website and be part of the competition’s exhibition.
The four selected ideas will receive financial support and expert advice to develop and adapt ideas to one of two case sites in Axelborg and Høje Gladsaxe, Denmark. The winning ideas that are developed will be exhibited in Copenhagen and presented at the UIA World Congress of Architects and the Danish Non-profit housing sector’s ‘Almene Boligdage’ – all part of Copenhagen being the World Capital of Architecture 2023 (https://copenhagenincommon.kk.dk/en), a major forum for discussing the future of our cities.
