Europan iterative process

Europan edition’s theme is the engine of the competition. Through the years both technical and scientific committees are devoted to elaborate further on the topic of the current contest. Forum intersessions and publications are intertwined with each edition contributing with a constant improvement process of the theme. The outcome of this iterative process is reflected in the Site Description Sheet of each new edition which poses the general and specific questions regarding the Sites and the Study Areas.

Europan15 Productive Cities MULTIMEDIA OUTCOME OF A RESEARCH PROCESS

Social and environmental questions are constantly at the core of Europan’s theme. In the 15th edition some of the participants were able to associate Theoretical Research with Plastic Experimentation involving Multimedia Tools of Communication. This combination of methods allowed them to provide answers to Spatial Questions that were fundamentally related to the comprehension of Urban Ecologies and Natural Ecosystems.
