The Cassa Depositi e Prestiti Investimenti Sgr has recently acquired the former Precision Electrical Components Factory in Flaminio, located between Via Guido Reni and Viale del Vignola, that will now be transformed into the new City of Science district.

Signaling the debut of a course of urban developments near Rome's historic neighborhoods, the area is marked by such iconic landmarks as Zaha Hadid's MAXXI Museum, Renzo Piano's Parco della Musica, and the Foro Italico and Olympic Village of 1960. The competition calls for a master plan for a neighborhood "integrated within the context of contemporary Rome." Covering an area of 5.1 hectares, the neighborhood should work in tandem with the City of Science, and feature landscaping, public areas that attract local residents as well as outside visitors, and residential spaces (including apartments and social housing) serving 1,500 to 2,000 people. Six participants will be chosen to move onto the second phase of the competition.

The competition is open to registered architects, engineers, and engineering companies from the European Union and Switzerland. Both group and individual participation is encouraged, and collaborators and consultants are welcome. The winner will be chosen by five official jurors and two substitutes, and will receive the commission to develop their proposal for the redesign.
