Curated by Bart Goldhoorn, publisher of Project Russia magazine, the Belgorod City Centre International Competition  is asking participants to design a large urban block (around 300 x 200 m) in the heart of the city in order to replace the low rise buildings that now occupy the site with a more dense development. Though the construction of high towers is very popular in Russia with developers, the city would like to limit the maximum building height limited to 15-20 meters. The main task is to find the optimum between density and quality and offer the city a recipe for redeveloping the city center as a whole, making it at an attractive place to live and work. The deadline for submissions is May 10. To register, and for more information, please visit here.

    This idea seems coming from another century. The competition is literally asking to replace a city by another one. What about the people who live there?
    Is there nothing more important than design issues? (…or big money issues, obviously) Unfortunately architecture or urban design are often the hostage.
    …So what about democracy!?

    keep attention please! this may be a fake competition, cause organizers send you an invoice with an IBAN code that don’t work (not enough numbers to let you make operations) so you can’t pay fee and can’t sign to compete. They also promise to send a Paypal account to pay it, and after two weeks nobody sent anything. Is this thing real???
