About the 24-hour Sundial competition

Polish cities are the spaces in which we live and follow our passions, so they should be designed bearing in mind those whom they serve every day. Each street, square, even the smallest alley is our Common Heritage; small components of a much larger whole that we will leave behind for future generations. That is why you should enter the competition and send us your project.
