Architectural design competition SARP no 974 for Małopolska Science Center in Krakow.
The Marshal's Office of the Małopolska Region (self-governmental authority), in cooperation with the Association of Polish Architects, Cracow Branch, announces a two-stage architectural and urban design competition for the development of the architectural and urban concept of the Małopolska Science Center in Krakow.
The aim of the Competition is to obtain the best architectural and urban solution for the project called Malopolska Science Center in Krakow (MSC). It is assumed that the best concept chosen by the Competition jury will take into account the specific nature of the project. It is essential to combine the applied solutions and the far and near contexts – spatial, architectural and cultural – of the Malopolska Region and Krakow – a city of culture, science and art. In the location, the Contracting Authority expects a contemporary architectural form of the highest quality that can become a showcase of the city and the region.
In the mind of the Contracting Authority, the Malopolska Science Center shall be an innovative cultural institution aimed at education through fun and gmes involvement in independent or team scientific experiments and other activities. The MSC should arouse passion for learning, help understand the world, build an attitude of creativity, openness, and a habit of thinking independently. The MSC is to be different from other such institutions as those conducting research, schools, and museums. The building should be a demonstration, a model example of sustainable and energy-efficient architecture, and comprise an educational and exposition path including the key points of the facility's infrastructure (e.g., installations, machinery, layers: walls, roofs, ceilings).The aim of the Competition is to select, through verification and evaluation in accordance with the provisions of the Regulations, the concept to develop a comprehensive design documentation enabling the execution of the investment in a building (a complex of buildings) for the Malopolska Science Center in Krakow, including the development of investment plots. The participant of the Competition whose Competition work shall be adjudicated to be the best by the Competition jury will be invited to negotiate under a single-source procurement procedure which will focus on detailing the Competition work consisting in the development of a comprehensive design documentation. The Contracting Authority plans to implement this investment in BIM technology.
The Competition is conducted in Polish.
