Open International Competition (in German) – House of Youth, Heidelberg, Germany

Since the 1960s, the City of Heidelberg has run the very successful "Haus der Jugend“ (House of Youth), which now has to be remodeled to house its new program adequately. All age groups and educational backgrounds gather here and call it home. With its new building the "Haus der Jugend“ is set to continue and renew its citywide attractiveness and reputation concerning open youth work with children and teenagers. New and multifunctional interior and exterior spaces are needed to continue its success story.

The site lies in between Heidelberg’s historic “Weststadt” and the “Südstadt” dating from the second half of the 20th century and works as a link between these two neighborhoods. The architecture and landscape design are crucial for the character of the campus of schools surrounding it.

The competition aims for a preliminary design (Vorentwurfsplanung) scheme for the new building, its immediate surrounding and its urban design context to make the "Haus der Jugend“ fit for the future. A total of 42.000 Euros will be awarded to the best proposals, in following negotiations one office shall be contracted for the project.

The size of the competition site (a combination of an area for implementation and for ideas) is 11.674 sqm. The architectural design is to encompass ca. 1.392 sqm of net-floorspace. Through the competition the conceptual and physical necessities should be imagined for the future development of youth work.

Construction costs experts monitor the process as the economic feasibility is an important criterion in the selection process and the following implementation with the successful architects. A cooperation of architects with landscape architects is mandatory.

The competition is split in an open first phase focusing on an urban design solution and schematic architectural ideas, presented on one A1-sheet and in a model (base provided). An international interdisciplinary jury will select 15-20 proposals for the second phase encompassing a complete design scheme for the building and the surrounding open space. The language of the competition and the following procedures will be German.

Before the jury views the short-list of the second phase the youth will get the opportunity to comment on the design solutions presented. The jury will be informed about these comments but will not need to follow them.

The open international competition by the City of Heidelberg is organized in cooperation with the International Building Exhibition IBA Heidelberg, a think-tank, platform and development agency for a “knowledge based urbanism”.
