Description
Competition dialogue is a creative process in which all the stakeholders are involved in finding a solution from the very beginning, in other words, from the creation of the commission itself. This process helps find a starting point from which to tackle complex problems, where large numbers of conflicting opinions clash and the contracting authority itself has no clear idea of what to ask for.
Charles Square also finds itself in this type of situation. The requirement for unhindered pedestrian access conflicts with efforts to restore protected historical landscape features. Residents’ wishes for a reduction in the volume of traffic and general trends to restrict the number of cars passing through the city are excluded by the operating needs of the major teaching hospital and the courthouse.
The objective of the competitive dialogue is to arrive, in the process actively involving architects’ teams interested in the contract to produce design and documentation for revitalization of the Charles Square in its Stage II – Park, at 1) more detailed assignment, and 2) produce proposals.
