Danes offer prize for urban design ideas
HA NOI (VNS)– Vietnamese architects, construction engineers, urban planners and landscape architects are invited to take part in a competition launched by the Danish Cultural Development Exchange Fund.
Architectural Ideas for Improving Urban Spaces is the theme this year. Participants will choose a particular Vietnamese urban area, analyse the relationship between the buildings and public space and propose a redesigning plan for the buildings by adding, deleting and/or changing the buildings to create more attractive public spaces.
The prize is a one-week visit to Denmark early next year.
A website will be available for the public to comment on and vote for the initiatives. The entry receiving the highest votes will get the audience prize, valued at VND10 million (US$500). -- VNS
