Occasion / aim
Bad Radkersburg and Gornja Radgona are two autonomous towns nowadays. Until World War I they have been one common urban organism. However, since then they had to go separate ways due to the political circumstances (Austria – Yugoslavia / Slovenia). In a united Europe there is now the chance to intensively foster the common interests of the towns and their further development. As a – at least from the point of view of planning – reunited town, Bad Radkersburg / Gornja Radgona might be presented as an outstanding example for a new, creative and multi-cultural Europe which overcomes borders.
With the implementation of the bilateral competition, Bad Radkersburg and Gornja Radgona hope to get new inspiration for city and open space development. Both towns aim at strengthening the new quality of the cooperation and thus also the common location which they would not be able to improve as effectively on their own.
Bad Radkersburg focuses on the planning of open space, whereas Gornja Radgona focuses more on city planning. The task is divided into two parts according to the design accuracy for which separated prices will be awarded. As a basis, the competition contents are linked very closely both on the Austrian and the Slovenian side and they also have to be dealt with in common.
