Basra, southern Iraq’s most important city, is opening up again after many years of war and recovery. To reflect this, Tamayouz Excellence Awards invites architects and designers to submit their ideas to transform the underused Dakeer Island into a vibrant recreational urban destination for locals and visitors.
Dewan invites architects, students, engineers and designers to participate in this competition. Participation can be individual or team (maximum of six members per team). Dewan encourages the participation of multidisciplinary teams.
Participants are asked to transform the underused Dakeer Island in Basra into an influential urban destination as a vibrant recreational waterfront that contributes to the well-being and quality of life of Basra’s residents.
The waterfront redesign should aim to establish an urban standard for sustainable, long-term development that balances economic growth with social responsibility and the enhancement of public spaces.
