Competition for the Weissenhof in Stuttgart (Germany)
Registration Deadline: Friday, Feb 11, 2022
Submission Deadline: Monday, Mar 28, 2022
"In 2027, the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart will be 100 years old. The famous estate with 21 houses was built for the Deutscher Werkbund exhibition in 1927 under the artistic guidance of Mies van der Rohe. The two houses of Le Corbusier are now part of the World Heritage Site. This upcoming anniversary forms the basis for the International Building Exhibition 2027 (IBA’27), which takes place in Stuttgart and its region. After a century of architectural and urban history, the IBA offers the opportunity to rethink the built testimonies of modernism and to advance the urban design at Weissenhof with a contemporary model. To this end, the state capital Stuttgart and the state of Baden-Württemberg, in cooperation with the IBA’27, are going to announce an open international ideas competition for the urban design of Weissenhof and its surroundings in 2022."

Tactical Urbanism Now! 2021 Competition
Register/Submit Deadline: Friday, Mar 18, 2022
"Over the last decade, cities all around the world have experimented with a wide range of urban transformations through colourful, flexible and light interventions. Nowadays, it has become more and more common to come across these type of projects in both, small towns and metropolises. Tactical Urbanism proposes an innovative design approach that aims to achieve long-term regeneration with short-term strategies. In certain cases, due to the positive impact that these interventions have generated in the urban realm, projects that were once thought of as temporary have now become permanent. Working at the scale of a street, a block or a building, tactical tools have the power to improve liveability citywide. Similar to the way acupuncture inserts needles into one part of the body to boost the well-being of the entire organism, these type of projects can actually lead to positive changes in an entire neighbourhood."
