Homemade Dessert and Liepaja City Council is launching the new architectural competition.
The competition is strictly connected to the ongoing architecture vision competition: "Ghost Town Challenge". This time, instead of asking for the introduction of a new element within Karosta's urban scape the competition asks you to think on a particular way to restore the lost vitality of the "brutalist" apartment buildings, by acting directly upon them.
Their powerful urban presence is evident, although their bad physical conditions are requiring an urgent answer. One could reinvent them or highlight them in a subtle way. This is your choice. The requet is to figure out a clever method to change their image and to redefine their future, by means of inexpensive materials, color introduction or simple but effective conceptual approaches.
What could really uplift this place and these buildings? What can be made to turn this place around? Are you subtle or radical?
