Synopses & Reviews
EUROPAN, founded in 1989, and supported by thirteen countries in the European Union, runs a competition every two years and invites young architects to submit innovative and experimental models in urban development. The 2019 EUROPAN competition focused on the topic productive cities
and involved more than nine hundred planning teams from all over Europe, who prepared proposals for forty-seven towns.
This book features the twelve winning submissions to the 2019 edition for the Austrian cities Graz, Innsbruck, Villach, Weiz, and Vienna. They are presented in impeccable detail through photos, drawings, and visualizations, along textual commentary. The projects focus on architectural and urban planning interventions and processes. They offer innovative concepts for the use of public space, models for cross-functional use of space, and holistic solutions for sustainable construction. Taken as a whole, the book is a rich source of trendsetting ideas about our future cities and the development of a new urban lifestyle.
