TerraViva Competitions launches Tactical Urbanism Now! 2023, a new edition of the architecture competition that puts the focus on the transformation of public space.
In order to face rapid changes and to improve the adaptability of public spaces, cities have been using Tactical Urbanism as a tool to become increasingly more dynamic and flexible. From a design point of view, architects and urban planners are experimenting with tactical techniques as short-term and low-cost actions for long-term and effective results.
This innovative approach can be adopted as an alternative and creative regeneration method that aims at improving the quality of public spaces by considering the community needs, adapting to site-specific conditions and strengthening cultural identity.
Tactical projects may vary in scale and location: they can involve a sidewalk, a whole street, an empty plot, a bridge and many other areas. These type of interventions can be highly communicative, adaptable and reversible.
The Tactical Urbanism Now! competition is open to students, architects, designers, urbanists, engineers, artists, and anyone interested in the transformation of urban space. Participants can join the competition either individually or with a team.
