Hangar Ticino | Competetion
TerraViva Competitions is launching HANGAR TICINUM, a new architectural competition focused on transforming an abandoned Italian seaplane base into a community center for local citizens. Prizes of up to â¬ 10,000 will be awarded to the winners selected by an international jury composed, among others, of German Fuenmayor (Piuarch), Anastasia Kucherova (Stefano Boeri Architetti) Lorenzo Degli Esposti (Degli Esposti Architetti), Filippo Imberti (TSPA) ;
Pavia is a charming Italian town of about 70,000 inhabitants, located along the banks of the Ticino river and only 30 km from Milan. During the 20th century, like many other cities in northern Italy, it experienced various moments of economic prosperity, enriching its urban fabric with a large number of industrial activities and strategic infrastructural facilities.
The traces of this productive past are in most cases still visible today, and certainly the most intriguing Pavese ruin still stands perched on the riverside at the gates of the historic center: âIdroscaloâ.
Abandoned and surrounded by dense spontaneous vegetation, the building today presents itself as a veritable enchanted ruin to be rediscovered.
Hangar Ticinum encourages participants to submit creative and innovative design proposals, challenging them to imagine a complete recovery of the disused seaplane base with the ambition to restore the importance and centrality it once had.
Awards & Mentions
â¢ 1st Prize: 4.000 â¬
â¢ 2nd Prize: â¬ 2,500
â¢ 3rd Prize: 1.500 â¬
â¢ 4 Gold Mentions: â¬ 500 each

â¢ 30 finalists
The building’s undoubted historical and artistic value, the uniqueness of the architectural typology and the worrying state of disrepair in which the structure has been for decades, are just some of the reasons that would urgently require its recovery.
The competition explicitly requires full attention to the social and cultural aspects of the project, prompting the designers to work on a program linked to daily use, open particularly to the younger generations and more generally to the entire local community.
How would it be possible to transform the hangar into a community hub lived in 7 days a week? What uses could succeed in obtaining the long-awaited rebirth?
Participants are thus invited to experiment openly without any fear of the existing building, testing an endless number of possible innovative design solutions. The most conservative proposals, characterized by a more discreet approach and respectful of the initial project, and the most ambitious and visionary, defined by more radical interventions, will also be accepted.
The project does not necessarily have to be limited to the only redevelopment of the interior spaces: indeed, modifications and additions are also authorized on the envelope and on the exterior zones (both at street level and at river level) .
Competitors must submit two A1 (59.4 x 84.1 cm) landscape oriented panels + a short text describing the proposal (up to 250 words). The panels must contain all the graphic information necessary to explain the project in the best possible way (title, diagrams, sketches, 3D visualizations, plans and sections, collages, model photos, etc.). All kinds of graphic representations will be accepted.
