Introduction: The challenge for the participants of this competition and the primary task and goal is to produce with their creative ideas a high-quality concept design, which will communicate genius loci, a sense of integrity, historical stratification, and awareness of the needs of the city’s modern functioning and living. This concept design should incorporate facades and a space that is “between”, which connects, separates, directs, welcomes, and as such, completes a coherent, harmonious image of the entire urban structure of this extremely valuable part of the city.
Summary: Facades of buildings planned for reconstruction are the central theme of this competition, which will adequately respond to the position and functions of this attractive part of the city with their architecture, and which should be accepted by different groups of beneficiaries.
In order to better respond to the problems of this space, the competition design sets the following goals:
• Produce an architectural design of facades and common space/areas with an aim to establish a high-quality urban environment and to protect heritage and genius loci;
• Define the architectural language of the entire environment, taking care of individual cultural monuments;
• Designate flexible access to the space in terms of the property structure and stages of construction and reconstruction;
• Consider purpose and content as a combination of tourism and services
