The competition | Concurso Internacional Parque de Valdebebas

The aim of the competition is to secure the services of a multidisciplinary team that will plan and design a new urban park of approximately 80 hectares in Parque de Valdebebas.

To this end the winning design will need to make the most of the planning, landscape, environmental and social opportunities offered by the site.
