Q&A

 


Q: I would like to know if the file LX_campus.ctb has been provided? If so, where can i find it?

A: The file has not been provided. The graphic options of the proposal are left to the competitors.


Q:  Is it possible to obtain an aerial photo? If not, can we use bing maps or google earth images in the panels?

A: There’s no aerial photo available. You can use all the available material online always respecting the respective Terms of Service.


Q: The color of the panel’s header can be changed for a better graphic composition of the panels?

A: Yes.


Q: Do we have access to all answers to clarifications requests?

A: Yes, except for some questions that are clearly answered in the guidelines.


Q: The Master Plan should be designed to include all the competition area or only the intervention area?

A: Only the intervention area.


Q: Is there any specific scale for the smaller-scale outdoor space plan?

A: No. The scale must be chosen accordingly to the zone chosen by the teams to be detailed.


Q: Can we change the traffic infrastructure?

A: Yes.


Q: Can we propose interventions on private spaces?

A: No. The scope of the competition is restricted to the public areas.


Q: Regarding that a A1 panel covered 100% with 300dpi implies that the file will have 200MB, is the 10MB limit correct (4E)? Do you have any suggestion?

A: The limit of 10 Mb is a reference and assures printing conditions for the competition’s organising committee. The file size will be directly dependent on the amount of the raster and vector information added to the panel. 10 Mb is the average size of an A1 panel at 300 dpi in pdf format with a 50/50 balance of vector and raster information.


Q: Can we send zipped files?

A: Yes.


Q: The registration in the competition has any costs? If so, how much?

A: Yes. 20 Euros. Please see point 2 of the competition guidelines for detailed instructions on registration procedures.


Q: Will you supply any kind of support material: plans, limits of the intervention area, existing buildings sections, etc.?

A: You can find all the support material available in the resources section of this site.
