YAC – Young Architects Competitions – and Urban Up l Unipol launched “Kid’s Factory,” an architectural competition to transform the former pottery of Laveno Mombello into the largest and most innovative campus for children in the world. A cash prize of €20,000 will be awarded to winners selected by a renowned jury comprised of Ben van Berkel [UNstudio], Keiichiro Sako [Sako Architects], Peter Wilson [Bolles+Wilson], Arne Emerson [Morphosis], Emmanuelle Moureaux, Mario Cucinella, Stefano Boeri, among the others.
The former pottery of Laveno Mombello is a mastodon that fell asleep on the banks of Lake Maggiore. It is a 27,000 square meter titan. Unipol, who owns the building, entrusted to YAC the opening of such a majestic architectural complex to childhood. By doing so, it will transform one of the most impressive industrial architectures of Europe into the largest kindergarten in the world.
