Bee Breeders lancia, in collaborazione con Pausales Dabas Fonds, partner associato WWF in Lettonia, il concorso internazionale di idee Pape Bird Observation Tower, la prima di una serie di competizioni dedicate al Pape Nature Park. Si tratta di un parco che gioca un ruolo vitale nella protezione di numerose specie di piante, uccelli e animali ed è maggiormente conosciuto per la reintroduzione di cavalli, aironi e bisonti nella regione.
L'intento del concorso è quello di spingere i partecipanti a elaborare un design iconico per una nuova torre da ricollocare al posto della precedente torre di osservazione del parco che bruciò perché colpita da un fulmine.
La nuova costruzione dovrà essere sensibile rispetto al contesto unico in cui dovrà essere inserita e, contemporaneamente, avere il potenziale per diventare un vero landmark territoriale.
Bee Breeders, in collaboration with Pasaules Dabas Fonds, the WWF associate partner in Latvia, are calling for submissions for the Pape Bird Observation Tower architecture competition. The first in a series of competitions based in Latvia's Pape Nature Park, the Pape Bird Observation Tower is looking for iconic designs for a replacement for the park's previous observation tower that burned down when it was struck by lightning. Participants are tasked with delivering designs for a new bird observation tower that is sensitive to the unique environment in which it will be located, while at the same time, has the potential to become an iconic landmark in its own right.
Pape Nature Park plays a vital role in protecting many different species of plants, birds and animals, and is most known for its role reintroducing wild horses, auroxen, and bison into the region. The park is looking for designs for an iconic tower that can help to gently influence the delicate ecosystem surrounding it.
The competition is open to all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum).
