Excellence: what can we learn?
The “Excellence” category addresses submission of a tested project (proof-of-concept) or already realized projects, where technology either has been a part of the process or the result. It recognizes excellence in work that can show us a better or new understanding about the usage, from looking at data patterns gathered from the installation/building/urban design. We encourage entries that show data analysis unfolding the use of an initiative in relation to time of a day, week and/or year.
Concept: “next big thing”
The “Concept” category is dedicated specifically to tomorrow’s hybrid and trans-disciplinary projects and approaches to the design of public space. Primary emphasis is on new, exciting concepts transcending the boundaries between industry and research, architecture and behavioral patterns, physical shape and technology. In this category, artistic originality counts just as much as masterful technical achievement. We encourage entries of concepts that will show visions on how an activation of a space can invite people from different ages, cultures and genders.
