5th Advanced Architecture Contest

The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and HP has announced the 5th Advanced Architecture Contest, on the theme of “self-sufficient habitat.” The aim of the competition is to promote discussion and research through which to generate insights and visions, ideas and proposals that help us envisage what the city and the habitat of the 21st century will be like.

The competition is open to architects, engineers, planners and designers who want to contribute to progress in making the world more habitable by developing a proposal capable of responding to emerging challenges in areas such as ecology, information technology, architecture, and urban planning.

The prize (total value 50,000 Euros) will be distributed at the discretion of the competition jury, which is comprised of architects, professionals from a wide range of field, and directors of some of the world’s foremost architecture schools.

The competition seeks outstanding proposals at any scale, for any city in the world, Smart cities, eco-neighbourhoods, self-sufficient buildings, intelligent homes, or any other proposal that analyzes the phenomena of self-sufficient habitats.

The submission deadline is September 30, 2013. Registration is free, and all competition entries must be submitted digitally via PDF files.
