General Framework Of Content:

It is important to take in account in such a competition the non-homogenous character of the projects and the different situations (in terms of economy, ecology and society) that they take place. Nevertheless the goal of all the projects is the same; to provide solutions in problems related to architecture or urbanism for the underprivileged, deprived or the oppressed, vulnerable populations. It is obligatory then to set some criteria that could make the comparison of the pro- jects possible, but also to offer a means to measure the proximity of the projects to the goal.

Based on this the entries should highlight the following aspects:

+ Vision of the project (impact of the project)
+ Clarity in expressing the core idea of the project. + Results or outputs of the project through visuals.
