Transport Malta has released the results of the Architects Design Competition, organised by the Authority and the Kamra tal-Periti, as part of the European Mobility Actions 2016.

The competition was launched for interested professional architects and architectural students to submit designs featuring innovative, sustainable urban spaces and future sustainable mobility solutions for a given locality. The submitted designs had to address one or more themes as suggested below.  Criteria were set for assessing and evaluating the designs submitted, one of which will be the implement ability of the design.  The designs therefore had to be custom made for a particular area (town/village/region) of Malta, according to these themes: 

Theme 1 – Sustainable Mobility including shared mobility, green infrastructure, alternative transport, low carbon transport.

Theme 2 – Green Urban Centers including shared public space, green areas, renewable energy.

The quality of the submissions had to be to the level that they can be implemented. The submissions had to include layout plans and visuals.

Participants were categorized in two:

  • Individual architects / companies
  • Students following a degree course in BCs Built Environment, M.  Engineering and M. Architecture.

Whilst congratulating the winners, the organisers thanked all of the entrants for their creative submissions to this competition and the high level of work and detail submitted, including the submissions made in the Students Category.
