Among the many received applications, 26 semi-finalists have been chosen. The semi-finalists are obliged to present a feasability evaluation and a small scale model (minimum 1:20, preferably made out of cardboard) to be handed in by the 31st March 2018. Following the project presentation, out of the semi-finalists between 5 and 10 finalists will be chosen (and notified by the 31st May 2018), the finalists will receive an artist residency to create their piece during Cartasia Lucca Biennale 2018.

The feasability evaluation must adhere to the following guidelines and can be presented via e-mail or ordinary post:

  • Time schedule for construction;
  • Construction process (required means, complexity of assembly);
