YAC –Young Architects Competitions–, BT Group, and Marina di Loano launch LEISURE HARBOR, a competition of ideas aiming to re-design one of the 10 most important marinas of Europe. The cash prize of € 20, 000 will be distributed to the winning proposals selected by an international jury panel made of, among the others: Manuel Aires Mateus, Patrick Lüth (Snøhetta), Huang Wenjing (OPEN Architecture), Paolo Matteuzzi (Zaha Hadid Architects).
