Łasztownia from a student’s point of view
In Szczecin, students from all over the world showed their visions of Łasztownia. These included spectacular concepts, ecology-focused solutions and even using the assets of underground Szczecin. This is the homestretch before the announcement of the great architectural and urban-planning competition scheduled for the final days of the year.
The implementation of the project entitled “Łasztownia. The new heart of the city” is approaching its crucial stage. As part of the preparations for the international competition for an architectural and urban-planning design of the island, architecture students created their visions of the island’s and its neighbourhood’s appearance in the near future. The presented concepts will be available for use during the preparation of the rules for the competition, which is to be announced at the end of the year.
The projects were created starting autumn 2015 at the KU Leuven University in Belgium (Ghent) by architecture students from such countries as Vietnam, Slovakia, Spain, Germany, Turkey and Iraq. On 15 June at the KU Leuven University in Belgium there was a thesis defence which saw the participation of the Szczecin City Architect, as a member of the examination committee.
