Design Challenge:
The generic theme of Europan 10 – Inventing urbanity – specifically involves collaboration with the cities and urban developers in the organizing countries. Indeed, the ultimate aim of the European vision of the city is to make society, in other words to bring together people of all conditions and origins. However, the dominant trend towards individualization, the quest for autonomy, cannot be ignored. This is precisely the contradiction that Europan addresses: on the one hand wanting the city – i.e animation, communal life, people – and on the other side wanting intimacy, privacy, home and the immediate circle.

Submission Requirements:
– three A1-format panels
– 2 copies of an A3-format bound document
– 2 copies of a Cdrom/DVD with the panels A1 in 300 dpi (PDF, size A1 andA3) and 72 dpi (PDF, web size) resolutions and the bound document, in 300dpi (PDF, size A3) resolution
– an A4-format sealed envelope containing documents revealing the competitors identity and proof that the proposal meets all the qualification requirements
