Street Furniture 2001 Competition

By Architechnophilia @atechno
Street Furniture 2001 CompetitionMetropolitan areas today are complex landscapes crossed daily by thousands of people who do not necessarily have local ties, but in addition to traditional citizens, they live in there not only permanently but traverse and use them tirelessly 24 hours a day.
Given the increasing complexity of cities it is becoming more urgent to imagine new urban devices that have the ability to act as signs of a strong identity and at the same as places that protect people temporarily while offering news, information, and digital materials about the area being traversed.
The objective of the Third Edition of the Premio Lissone is to imagine a new generation of street furniture capable of helping in the creation of these new elements, urban furniture designed to meet the needs of the new city.
The competition is open to students of design & architecture, artists, draftsmen, architects and designers of all nationalities, who in the calendar year (2011) have not yet turned 36.
