EUROPAN 14 LAUNCH: 13 FEBRUARY 2017
E14 – "PRODUCTIVE CITIES"
One program is very often excluded from urban projects – the productive economy, which left the city to settle in the periphery. Many European cities now present a spatial and social mismatch between living and working conditions. Production should be fostered withing the city, form an integral part of the urban fabric, be allowed to be seen and be connected to a shared daily life.
"Productive Cities" is therefore presented as the topic of the 14th session of the Europan competition, to be launched next 13 February 2017 in about 15 countries. Approximately 50 sites will be proposed; they have been classified in 4 thematic families to help develop the projects.
