Design Challenge:

The competition goal is to obtain urban design proposals for the Delta area of the City of Rijeka, which will introduce an innovative model of feasible development, in which qualitative values (the environment), identity values (the history, contemporary urban life) and inclusive values (the society and social expectations) will define the guidelines for the Delta site, triggering the renewal process for other suitable waterfront areas in Rijeka as well as the city and the country at large. The awarded competition entries will serve as an expert basis to produce documents of urban planning.

The competition is being promoted as a call for concepts as opposed to a design competition, thus enabling the competitors to investigate into both the “land-use/gross build-up area” framework as well as the spatial/urban context of the site and propose the ideas which could challenge the general guidelines and requirements set by the Master Plan of the City of Rijeka.
