The Municipality of Plovdiv (Bulgaria) and One Architecture Week invite worldwide architects to participate in an open international competition for concept design. The competition is to outline the future of the Central Square in Plovdiv—an emblematic location where most of the significant historical periods of the city overlap. A solution for their untroubled co-existence is yet to be found.


Who can participate?

The competition is international and anonymous. Eligible for participation are Bulgarian and foreign architects or teams with at least one member who is an architect and in legal capacity to practice architectural design.


How will winners be selected?

The winners will be selected in two stages of evaluation.
Stage 1: The international jury distinguishes 3 finalists
Stage 2: Following a public discussion, the Municipality of Plovdiv selects the final winner among the 3 finalists.


How to participate?

Participation in the competition is free. No preliminary registration is required. Projects should be submitted online via special form on this website which will be accessible between 14 June and 20 June 2014.



The three finalists will receive financial rewards as follows:
First prize: 20 000 BGN (~10 000 EUR)
Second and third prizes: 10 000 BGN (~5 000 EUR)
