The Project Enquiry for the Rec district of Igualada is an ambitious participative process promoted by the Igualada City Council alongside the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) with the collaboration of the Architects Association of Catalonia (COAC), aiming to decide the future of the most emblematic district of this city.

Under the title “Rethinking the Rec district”, the citizens of Igualada are asked to participate in a collective exercise of imagining what the district should be like in a decade from now and after that. From the conclusions of the several public debates, architects and town planners – local, national and international – will be able to send their ideas and proposals and opt to several prizes. These proposals will also be chosen by a jury of experts and agents from Igualada.

The competition is divided in three categories: Construction and mixed uses, Public space and urban landscape, and Town planning and connectivity.

Do yo want to participate? Download the entire set of specifications and present your team. On this website you will find all the additional documentation about the Rec that you might need. The deadline is November 17th at 2 pm.

Prizes are:

►4.000€ for each of the 15 selected teams
►10.000€ for each of the 3 winning teams
