Al Umma Park Competition First Ten...

Della Gondola (Sulev Nurme, Sten Juur and Anna Belova); Tartu, Estonia
“The design concept is simple and implementable, with the project’s connections via the urban edges well-thought through, layered and detailed. The project’s underground design is successful, and it features a very interesting design of Al Umma Cultural Centre. We also commend the diagrammatic representation of the proposal, which incorporates the two squares in the plot of the park, as well as the traffic connection with the urban fabric. However, the architectural treatment of the required building appears a bit exaggerated and out of scale with the surroundings.”

"The winners were selected from a shortlist of 20 submissions, which was released in September 2019. The shortlisted finalists were chosen from a larger pool of 99 submissions from 29 countries. Selection of the finalists was based off criteria set in the award’s brief, such as responding to the site’s conditions and offering solutions that are mindful of the park’s existing structures and monuments, as well as the needs of the local context and community.
