Eleven’s fifth international ideas and design competition set in the beautiful Eternal City is now open for registration, and we invite you to join in the challenge!
Rome 2017 is a direct reaction against two realities, which are increasingly overshadowing Rome’s image. Layered as a historical palimpsest of unparalleled culture, there is no denying the rare beauty of the ‘Eternal City’ - so called because of its timelessness. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about its historic river Tiber. Dirty and desolate at water level and riddled with traffic above, its wide river banks are underused and empty if not for the occasional runner, the many graffiti and the rubbish.
In parallel to the river’s degradation, today Rome is at the heart of a growing polemic on its current state, with many suggesting that the city is struggling to keep up with contemporary life, leaving it almost frozen in time.
Rome 2017 is an international ideas and design challenge that seeks to address these issues by asking the international architecture and design community three questions:
1. What would a contemporary river renaissance look like in Rome?
2. Can the city live up to its eternity and incorporate within its layers of history a more contemporary lifestyle?
3. And can this consolidate the river Tiber into a new focus within the city for this millennium: transforming its waters from a passive element to an active, integrated and renewed part of the city?
With great cash prizes to be won, international exposure and a world class jury, come and join Rome 2017. Who will be the winner....could it be you?
The competition is now open and will close on the 11th of May 2017. Make sure you join before the 1st of March to get your Early Bird Discount!
