Young architects, designers and design studios will partecipate in this competition to celebrate the legend and sculpt in matter the history of speed, power and innovation. 

An international legend with an Italian heart. A legend that, starting from 2018, will be enriched by a further exciting chapter. 
Made in Italy and known as the “Urus” project, the third model of the House of the Bull will soon be leading the market as the new Made in Italy luxury icon: a supersport car among the SUVs.

The aim of the contest is to reflect the character and the values of one of the most renowned and valued brand of the international scenario in an architectonic installation and to architecturally interpret the DNA of one of the most representative brands of the automotive history.

The competition, in collaboration with YAC, Young Architects Competitions, leader in the promotion of architectural competitions, and sponsored by the Region of Emilia Romagna, Città Metropolitana, the City of Sant'Agata Bolognese, the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna and Unindustria Bologna, has an outstanding international jury.
