JUDGING CRITERIA 

The Jury is looking for solutions that are plausible and rooted in local conditions. Judging will be based on a clear explanation of the following:

 

1. SITE
Explain the choice of the 1x1 km grid. Explain what is there and why it is in need of transformation.

2. ARCHITECTURE 
Show how biophilic design changes the form and functionality of buildings within the site. Explain this in detail by focusing on the transformation of 2-3 buildings describing new typology and user experience.

3. URBAN DESIGN
Describe new networks that have been created, and how old networks (of mobility, programme, etc.) have been altered. Show how the site functions as a whole, serving the needs of humans and other species

4. REPLICATION AND IMPACT 
Explain the relationship of this site to the surrounding city. How does the transformation of this site alter wider networks of the city? What if more sites in the city were designed in this way?


Entrants are encouraged to present ideas in conceptual and strategic ways, with a calibrated amount of detail.
