SNP Square and Kamenné Square, Bratislava

, Slovakia, Europe
Competitive Dialogue 2019/2020

Metropolitan Institute of Bratislava
The competitive dialogue concerns the area in the middle of the city center of Bratislava (the capital city of Slovakia) and included Slovak National Uprising Square (SNP Square) and Kamenné Square, which represent one of the most important urban spaces in Bratislava. The area combines several important features – it is a significant space from both the historical and social point of view, an important public transportation transfer hub, and location of historical monuments.

As other European cities, the 20th century Bratislava was characterized by a dynamic development of central urban spaces. Despite their significance, some of them are undergoing gradual deterioration. The opinion, that the present state of this public space is unsatisfactory, is openly shared among experts, the public and the city administration. It is necessary to create a realistic scenario to renew and develop this area.

Briefly about the process
Evaluation committee will choose four teams, which, based on submitted documents, will seem to be the most capable for creating a quality proposal. At the initial conference there will be an introduction of the territory and its current topics. In less than two months, all teams will separately present their concepts to the evaluation committee, experts and stakeholders, and after a thoughtful discussion will receive feedback and guidance for further refinement.

After another two months, the competing teams will present their final designs and after the discussion the jury will evaluate them based on the quality. Then the competition teams will submit their price offers, which will be assessed together with the outputs from the previous stage. With the candidate, whose project (quality at first, price as second) will be assessed as the best, a contract will be signed. The subject of the contract will be a continuous work on the proposal within further projects milestones.

Timetable
• 17. 1. 2020 – submissions of requests to participate
• 14. 2. 2020 – submissions of professional approach portfolio
• in week 09.03.2020 – 13.03.2020 – initial conference
• in week 27.04.2020 – 01.05.2020 – separate presentations of the proposal concepts (1st workshop)
• in week 22.06.2020 – 26.06.2020 – separate presentations of the final proposals and evaluation based on quality of the proposal (2nd workshop)
• 10.7.2020 – submissions of the price offers
• 31.1.2020 – declaration of results of the competitive dialogue
