ABC | MONZA 2019 is an international architectural ideas competition in the time of Digital Transformation.The theme of the competition is the urban regeneration of an industrial site of approximately 60,000 square meters in the city of Monza - Italy in accordance with the values of environmental, economic and social sustainability.One of the characterizing elements of this competition is the use of BIM (Building Information Modeling) for the ideation, design and submission of the proposal. WHEREVia Philips 12 in Monza - Lombardy - Italy, north of the Greater Milan and close to what in the coming years will become the Campania stop of Line 5 of the Milan underground WHAT TO DESIGNFew constraints and great creative freedom are the cornerstones of this competition.This is because we expect the competitors to give their best by designing and developing, within the limits of a competition of ideas, a proposal that amazes. An innovative proposal, perhaps unconventional or even "foolish" in the Steve Jobs’ favored meaning of instinctive, passionate and unconstrained by dogmas and preconceptions. A proposal that could be a building, more buildings or even no building. Perhaps a place of aggregation for leisure or for work or perhaps a less probable place of retreat and meditation. An incubator of dreams or of start-ups or a Chocolate Factory. But another important point is that it is sustainable at the time of construction as it should be in times to come. And finally, it is called to bring value, in the broader term of the word, to the neighbourhood around it.
