International Urban Design Ideas Competition – Trenčín – City on the River

is currently facing changes connected with the relocation of the railway track directly within the city centre as part of the modernisation of the European railway corridor, with planned completion in 2016.

Therefore, the City of Trenčín seeks fresh and innovative urbanistic solutions that will overcome transportation barriers and connect the historic city centre with the riverfront, giving the city a new growth impulse and enhancing its expression. The winning proposals will form the base for a new Central City Zone Masterplan, which the municipality intends to develop following the results of the competition.

Interested participants can register free of charge on the competition website until 4 March 2014. The submission deadline for competition entries is 24 April 2014.

Courtesy of

The design for the  Culenova New City Center by Zaha Hadid Architects is based on a dynamic field strategy which aims to organize the city’s new city center program along a gradient of circular and elliptical patterns. In a series of larger tower extrusions, a fluid field emerges from its underlying matrix to activate the ground throughout the whole site and provide public spaces of the highest quality.

Parkhill Competition Winning Proposal / Nice Architects

Courtesy of

Located on the former site on an old outdoor amphitheatre in , Slovakia, the proposal for the housing and mixed use development, which won the first prize in the Parkhill competition, offers spectacular views and close proximity to one of the city’s oldest parks. Designed by Nice Architects, their challenge on the 52,000 m2 site was to create intensive residential development with public services located in the lower part of the site. The final composition of the buildings becomes a small reminiscence of the former amphitheatre. More images and architects’ description after the break.
