International Design Competition for Park – Madrid Spain

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. The design should resolve the transition between the urban area currently being developed and the adjacent forest park. Of utmost importance will be the proposed uses and their suitability for the scale and location of the park. To this end the winning design will need to make the most of the planning, landscape, environmental and social opportunities offered by the site.
