Why participate?

The shortlisted and selected projects after phase 1 and the shortlisted and winning projects of phase 2 will be documented in a high -quality publication in detail and will also be published on the competition website and the website of iba parkstad.

The publication will be distributed among policy and decision makers of local authorities and housing associations and will form the basis for an exhibition that iba parkstad will show to an international public.

For acknowledgments 5.000 € will be divided up by the number of awarded acknowledgments.

Further Development after Phase 2
The intention of the competition is to at least realize one dwelling-unit of one prize winner, (that is) as a prototype on scale 1:1 for the iba parkstad in 2020.

This as long as funding can be secured by one or more partners.

The consortium of promoters will not have the function of a commissioner for the realization of projects. The winning and shortlisted entrants, especially the first prize design will be offered and recommended for realization to a consortium of local authorities, site owners and real estate developers that are interested in realizing one or more projects. Members of this group or the group as a whole will fund the projects.

At that moment the project will be transferred to a normal commission under HOAI (official scale of services by architects and engineers in Germany) phases 2-5.

In the event of further development and commission, services already provided by the competition by the contestant are not compensated again up to the amount of the prize.
