Tartu to organise an idea competition for Uueturu Park
Tartu City Government
27 June / The Tartu City Government has decided to organise an idea competition for Uueturu Park.
The Tartu City Government has decided to organise an idea competition for Uueturu Park, with the goal being the comprehensive renewal of the area located between Tartu Kaubamaja and the Vanemuine Theatre.
Entries should include the conceptualisation of the space and the development of a pleasant contemporary solution for the cityscape.
According to City Architect Tõnis Arjus, Küüni Street and Uueturu Park both possess great potential for holding events. ‘The competition area does not have to become a square in its entirety, but must instead achieve an optimal balance between the functions of a park and a square’, added Arjus.
The competition area extends to the upper car park of the Vanemuine Theatre, also encompassing the hillside in front of the theatre building. Entries must also include a solution for the area along Küüni Street that is currently occupied by flower sellers.
The deadline for submitting entries is 12 September 2017.
Competition entries will be judged by a jury by 26 September 2017, at the latest, after which the keywords of the winning entries will be published.
