YAC (Young Architects Competitions) have just launched Kid’s Factory, a competition inviting designers to refurbish the former pottery of Laveno Mombello into a modern and international kindergarten on the shores of Lake Maggiore. There will be a total amount of 20,000 € in prize money for the awarded proposals and the jury of the competition gathers outstanding international personalities like Ben van Berkel, Peter Wilson, Arne Emerson, Mario Cucinella and Stefano Boeri.
As a matter of fact, Kid’s Factory is expected to be a moment of significant international participation for combining extremely interesting and up-to-date topics and a well esteemed Technical Committee.
