The Municipality of Prato, Italy, is launching an open, anonymous, international two-phase design competition – PPPPRATO – for a new 3-hectare urban park in its historical city center. The international jury will select 10 finalist architects who will be invited to conceive a schematic design for the site. In June 2016 the winner will be awarded and commissioned to design the final project for the new Parco Centrale di Prato. The main aim of the competition is to completely rethink the former hospital area, creating an urban park that endows it with a functional and strategic role so as to fully include it in the network of city relations.
The official competition documents may be downloaded from the website of the Comune di Prato (at this link).
The deadline for applications is February 29, 2016.
