Call for Entries: Only a Box – La Città Nuda (The Naked City)

After the successful past Editions La Città Nuda The Naked City presents, in collaboration with Moso International e TAG Talent Garden Torino, the new international contest focalised on the "architecture in a box". This edition, organized by the Architects Giulia Desogus, Valerio Fogliati and Ambra Seghesio, will take place in Turin, in the neighbourhood Porta Palazzo.

The Competition

The competition requires the participants to create a small dynamic and multifunctional space to be set up in a 50 mq (530 square feet) lot with an adjoining outdoor appurtenant area. The architectural ideas presented and their construction process will have to be innovative, linked to the concepts of speed of construction, temporariness, low cost of execution, manageability and functionality. The goal is to create a multifunctional space where to hold meetings, work and host leisure activities, in an informal but also safe atmosphere.

The concept behind the competition is “architecture in a box”, the redesign of a space in a neutral existing container.
It’s like an empty box: the project needs to be set up within this spacial constraint but without forgetting how its relationships with the urban context around can influence its internal dynamics. A white box, placed, drawn on a piece of paper.

The Site

Porta Palazzo is an historical neighbourhood of Turin, it has always been the market area with noumerous small craft - commercial - services businesses, once the heart of the neighbourhood, do no longer run and they left only empty spaces. The goal of this competition is to provide a pilot project which would give some indications to transform this vacant spaces in something new and riqualified active on the real estate market.
