Miris Garden Modern Dalmatian village resort 2022
About the Competition
INSPIRELI and CTU in Prague offers architecture students from all over the world to participate in a completely unique educational project of a Year-round holiday resort in Croatia. For the first time in our history, we will combine competition and education in a single project that, thanks to an enlightened developer, will not only allow students to be involved in shaping the final design, but most importantly to work with product and technology suppliers from design to implementation.
We hereby invite students of your university to join us and learn by doing on the INSPIRELI AWARDS platform, which is open to all, regardless of their economic, social, or ethnic background.
Design one of seven types of resort amenities and earn a spot on the implementation team. (Awarded students will receive airfare to Prague, accommodation, experience, their name on the building that results from their design, and an invitation to the grand opening of the resort coupled with a VIP vacation.)
The site is located in close proximity to Starigrad, Croatian village near Zadar, popular tourist destination. Starigrad is a traditional Croatian village with a long history, offering variety of accommodation, restaurants, sport and leisure activities. It is visited annually by up to 90,000 tourists.
The site is situated in a rich and diverse landscape of Croatia coastline with a complex topography that includes very steep slopes and valleys, and it is covered with a mix of native plants and vegetation.
The masterplan for the site includes accommodation and recreational facilities for visitors and local community.
Hotel, apartment buildings, private villas, camp, sports fields, commercial centre, marina and costal walkway with access to public beaches. The main idea of the masterplan is to create an exciting place for people which brings the community and visitors of all ages together in a vibrant environment.
