        • Description
        • A Creative Hub can be defined as a space that induce Creative Thinking, which is a combination of creativity, curiosity and communication. A place, real or virtual, where designers meet ordinary people to bring creative influences and creative acts. A Creative Hub has the ambition to create and enhance every local resource that can attract creative brains in a specific territory. In today's scenario, every global city is competing with each other to build creative hubs, which are also architectural masterpieces, developed according to local needs of region. But real needs are difficult to be identified and they change from region to region.

          Urban Vision and Architectural Design Department would like to test tour talent and urban vision skills with an experimental contemporary subject. Candidates are requested to submit a design project for a Creative Hub that meets the need of the selected area, explaining the reasons of their choice and the functional programme identified. Defining a CREATIVE HUB competition: define your idea of Creative Hub; identify a place in your hometown and/or where to locate the creative hub; design a unit.

          GUIDELINES
          The candidates can consider the following questions, which are gathered as a research influence on the subject of Creative Hub and its functions, starting from a global to local critical aspects, daily or timeless design matter and context. The answers can be descriptive or drawn by a schematic analysis, aiming to understand different territorial scales and meanings of this concept to define a meta-project concept or graphic vision explaining every possible operation in a global/local panorama.

        05.12.09 I graduated in 2008 but I would like to collaborate with a friend graduating in 2009. Is collaboration possible, or this competition intended for individuals, considering the prize is a scholarship. / Architectureisfun.
