Students interested in participating, have to submit a project proposal about:

  • the redevelopment of an urban area with a particular complexity and, therefore, the need of an integrated approach;

  • methods of analysis and design, by morphological settings, by procedural and implementing contents and by choices related to the urban context.

The quality of students’ proposals must be certified by their teachers. The projects and their authors will be published in the Multimedia Gallery of Urbanpromo 2017 and publicize all over the world through the media partners of the event.
The projects will be evaluated and awarded by an international jury, concerned in urban regeneration with two prizes and by the visitors of the Urbanpromo website with two more prizes.
Following the great success of the Urban-promogiovani8 competition, the Chamber of Commerce of Genoa will sponsor further awards, aimed at supporting the initiative and drawing attention to retail – tourism – culture led urban regeneration. A jury of expert will award the prizes to the 6 higher score projects.
