We received this interesting competition which proposes a new concept. The aim is to build a know-how on running alternative, open license-based two-phase architectural competitions. Participants of the first phase are required to submit their works under Creative Commons licenses – this allows in the second phase to feel freely inspired by and reuse others’ designs without critical legal restrictions.
Organizers intend to develop a methodology to organize such competitions while examining its sociocultural, economical and political aspects and necessities. As a result they would prepare this methodology so it can be tested later in real life conditions and become a starting point of a open license driven public building processes.
