INTBAU Architecture Challenge Design Competition
Tijd en locatie
Over het evenement
The INTBAU Architecture Challenge design competition will open in October 2021, with a submission deadline in May 2022.
Proposals must advance local traditions, be low-cost and easy to build, and respond to a real location anywhere in the world that is affected by one or more of
– lack of houses that are affordable, sustainable, and appropriate for their context
– climate that needs more, new, better, or different design solutions
– rapid change through population growth or decline
Participants in the design competition will be encouraged to work in multi-disciplinary teams. The online learning series will also provide opportunities for networking.
Design submissions will include an application form downloaded from the Architecture Challenge website, which will require:
-a context statement which describes the location, its built and/or climactic challenges, and its building traditions, and which outlines plans for engagement with the local community/ies
-a methods and materials statement which describes any advancing, adapting, or updating of the local vernacular to meet 21st century needs
-a breakdown of anticipated costs per unit in GBP and/or local currency with, where possible, a local m2 comparable cost indicator where possible, tested, proven, or anticipated performance results based on an accepted standard
-a statement confirming the authors’ permission will be given for the design to be open source, shareable, downloadable, and scalable
-a selection of high-resolution photographs, plans, drawings, and renderings
A first prize of £2,000 will be awarded to the winning entry, with two secondary prizes of £1,000 each.
An international jury will select the shortlist and winning entry.
