The University of Catania‘s ICSplat has just launched their New Concordia Island Contest, a competition calling for ideas that respond to the January shipwreck of the Costa Concordia off Giglio Island, Italy. The contest is calling for future architectural visions for Giglio Island and the shipwreck, together — two elements that are now part of the same landscape and will remain so for some time. The contest asks: Is there any way to reconsider the Giglio Island with this new outcropping “rock” that has changed the coastline? Is there a role for architecture in creating a new, long-term vision for this area? Whether you’re thinking of turning the ship into an island, a theme park, or maybe even a destination for marine life, submit those inspired ideas today. Registration for the competition closes September 24th, 2012 and ideas must be entered by September 25th. Three prizes of up to €1500 will be awarded to the winning designs.
