Eligibility Students (It is necessary that 1 student at least is the student of architecture.)

The challenge of the task is to offer an original concept that would lead to the final product, which would be represented through a certain category, material, and ratios. The aim is to accomplish consistency in the designing process. Therefore, it is necessary to take care of originality and contribution, both through the idea/concept and through the elaboration/details. In all that, it is necessary to have in mind that contemporary design is inseparable from environmental protection that is possible to achieve through the designing and planning processes as well. Thus, urban furniture should be designed in the way that will simultaneously contribute to preservation of the environment.
The competition will be carried out in several stages, concluding with practical realisation of the best solutions, selected by an expert jury. During the first jury cycle, at least five best solutions will be selected. After that, they will be produced within the workshop by their authors. A seminar will also be organised within the workshop, on selected topics. The participants of the workshop will be all the authors of the selected solutions, members of the RestArt group , and lecturers and experts in the fields of architecture and urban design. After four days of practical work, the completed urban furniture pieces will be displayed in the open park, within the premises of the Manual Forgotten Arts Museum M.F.A.M. in Novi Sad and the best produced and designed solutions will be selected and rewarded.
