2023 AIA COTE Top Ten for Students Competition

2023 AIA COTE Top Ten for Students Competition

Architects play a crucial role in addressing both the causes and effects of climate change through the design of the built environment. Innovative design thinking is key to producing architecture that meets human needs for both function and delight, adapts to climate change projections, continues to support the health and well-being of inhabitants despite natural and human-caused disasters, and minimizes contributions to further climate change through greenhouse gas emissions. Preparing today’s architecture students to envision and create a climate adaptive, resilient, and carbon-neutral future must be an essential component and driving force for design discourse.

Given their long lifespan, new buildings must be designed to address solutions to climate change and to respond to its projected impacts, well into the second half of the 21st Century and beyond. As with the COTE Top Ten award for built work by design professionals, COTE Top Ten for Students allows designs to be characterized in terms of 10 measures ranging from Community to Water to Wellness.

2023 Concrete Masonry Student Competition

7 June 2023 : submission deadline

2023 Concrete Masonry Student Competition

The challenges of the past few years have demonstrated the need for places for individuals in communities gather. The goal of this competition is to create a functional space within a community for gathering, play and shelter. A multi-functional building that can be used in a variety of ways is the overall goal. Think about how communities will gather in the future and design a building to meet these needs. Concrete masonry is an ideal choice for this type of building. It is durable and long-lasting, providing a pleasing aesthetic, and can be used for security and safety. Designs should identify multiple ways to take advantage of concrete masonry’s benefits to meet the needs of this new community center.

The design competition asks students to use concrete masonry products as the primary material in the design of a state-of-the-art Community Commons. This community center, both indoor and outdoor gathering spaces can be used for education, recreation, networking events and more. The Community Commons must be able to be used as a community storm shelter in case of extreme events such as tornadoes, hurricanes, or other natural disasters. Concrete masonry is a flexible, resilient and durable material, and provides vast opportunities for form, function and expression.

Architectural Competition launched for a new Timepiece for the Railway, UK

new Timepiece for the Railway UK

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Design Museum (London), have launched a design competition, in partnership with Network Rail, inviting proposals for the design of a timepiece to be used across the British rail network.

Anthony Dewar, Head of Buildings and Architecture at Network Rail, explained:
“The British railway was integral to the standardisation of time across the world but unlike other countries, Britain did not implement a standard railway clock. We hope this competition will put that right with the creation of a timepiece that can be adapted for use across the whole rail network – from stations to maintenance delivery units, railway control centres to train depots.

“The winning entrant will need to be an inspired design, which can be cost-effectively implemented at scale and adaptable to a wide variety of settings. This a unique opportunity to create a design that could have a highly visible and enduring legacy.”

Justin McGuirk, Chief Curator, the Design Museum & Director of Future Observatory commented:
“An awareness of time is crucial to the experience of being in a train station. This is an extraordinary opportunity to redesign that experience. Instead of everyone being ensconced in their phones, how can we return time to its central presence in stations, with civic purpose and a strong sense of place? The Design Museum is delighted to be collaborating with Network Rail on this international competition.’’

The competition is open internationally to practitioners within the fields of art, design, engineering and/or architecture. Submissions are also welcome from students from these disciplines. Collaboration is encouraged between individuals and organisations of different size, expertise and experience.

The competition brief has been developed in collaboration with industry design experts including Margaret Calvert, Crispin Jones and Violetta Boxill, who will all form part of an Evaluation Panel.

To view the full architecture competition brief and for details on how to register please visit The closing date for submission of design proposals is 12.00hrs (BST) on Tuesday 13 June 2023.

Urban aesthetics is a significant part of urban renewal, which is not only connected to the public’s aesthetics of the city but also related to the creation of urban vitality. It involves all aspects of urban life, which is not only reflected in landscape art and public facilities but also in the enduring urban spirit, the air filled with the breath of life and the humanistic atmosphere of various places. Therefore, the construction of an urban aesthetic system needs to be rooted in the exploration and understanding of local people’s livelihood, industrial economy, cultural genes, environmental elements, urban administration and operation, use of systematic and comprehensive thinking, get rid of the development mode of large-scale demolition and construction, repairing the old as the old and industrialized production, and adopt the concept of acupuncture transformation to refine and create works with condensed wisdom, so as to activate the urban business form and respond to the core theme of urban renewal: high-quality urban development.

Taking the diversified forms of urban furniture, landscape& floral art, public art and visual system as the carrier, this international competition invites young designers as well as college teachers and students, from home and abroad, in architecture, landscape, environmental art, digital media, public art and visual design to participate in the research on reconstruction of urban aesthetic system, and solicits new urban functions, new forms and new modules with both urban functions and ancient city style. The competition hopes that the participants will break the professional boundary, think about current public life and activities of “new residents” in the ancient city in the future, stimulate the regeneration of urban vitality, form the unique character and cultural tone of the ancient city, and finally jointly create a dynamic historical and cultural city with tastes of both contemporary life and aesthetics.

The competition is chaired by Mr. Zeng Hui, who is a famous design scholar and art curator in China. Mr. ZengHui is the planning director of Beijing International Design Week, the master of Baihuazhou Traditional Handcraft Workshop, the deputy secretary-general of Architecture and Culture Society of China, the president of the Hostel Industry Branch and the CBC chief expert on urban aesthetics.

layer 2.0 Architecture Design competition 2022, Tel Aviv-Yafo

In the 21st century, most metropolitan areas are characterized by dense construction. Considering both the forecasts of population growth and the limited land reserves, future urban renewal projects will inevitably involve new building additions above existing structures, creating a new urban layer. Tel Aviv-Jaffa is inadvertently becoming a living lab, where new construction integrates with the conservation of the UNESCO listed heritage zone, located in the heart of the city.

Home Competition by arch out loud 2021

How do we define “home”? Although our ideas about home are constantly being rethought, the careful examination of “home” has recently come to the attention of architects and nonarchitects alike. In recent times, almost everyone has had to confront their perspective of “home” as these spaces have evolved to incorporate so many aspects of our daily lives.

Treehouses at Kew Design Competition, London, England, UK

(7 February) 2022, 12 noon GMT: Stage 1 Expressions of Interest submissions deadline

‘Treehouses at Kew’ will be a spectacular outdoor architectural exhibition of seven treehouses set across Kew Gardens’ iconic 320-acre landscape.

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a world-leading plant science institute and UNESCO World Heritage Site and are pleased to be partnering with the Museum of Architecture to create this inspiring project. Treehouses at Kew will be Kew’s main exhibition running from April to October 2023 and provide one of the most enticing and unmissable visitor experiences in the 2023 London cultural calendar.

This impressive project will include seven Treehouses, a gallery exhibition, and an accompanying visitor programme.

Treehouses at Kew Design Competition from Museum of Architecture on Vimeo.

The Brief:

RBG Kew and the Museum of Architecture invite you to design a spectacular treehouse as part of this programme for one of three selected trees in the Gardens’ 320-acre site. Each treehouse should respond to one of the accompanying themes:

• Treehouse 1: Celebrating play

• Treehouse 2: Highlighting nature’s architecture and biomimicry

• Treehouse 3: Showcasing pioneering sustainable materials and innovative design

The exhibition will communicate the value of good design and the role architects can play in addressing some of the most pressing problems we face today – how can we use materials sustainably, how can we respond to the climate crisis and how can we build for the needs of people and the planet.

Each treehouses design should be accessible to all our visitors (see Accessibility appendix). Designs should champion Kew’s beautiful and important trees, and be inspired and informed by Kew’s vital scientific research into plants and fungi. With an informal, playful approach we will allow our narratives to be told in an understandable yet compelling way.

We support inclusivity and diversity within the selection process and encourage responses that draw on unique cultural perspectives to tell stories that connect with our visitors from more diverse backgrounds. We are bringing together a juried panel of experts who will choose three competition winners, and in the Summer of 2023, visitors will be able to experience the landscape from a completely new vantage point – your treehouse.

This is an exciting opportunity to use creative and architectural thinking to design in and around Kew’s living collection and produce inventive, accessible, and innovative designs. This very special project needs exceptional teams to design it. The competition is open to UK-based and international architectural practices, and we welcome submissions from collaborative groups.

The chosen Treehouses should incorporate the following within the design:

• Be architecturally interesting and playfully appealing (Kew Gardens is a visitor attraction)
• Demonstrate boldness
• A focus on sustainable practice, materials and design
• Engaging and accessible for people with diverse access needs (physical, sensory, cognitive)
• Alignment to key themes – See Section 5 for details
• Be informed or inspired by RBG Kew’s pioneering scientific work into plants and fungi
• Have a legacy life after Kew Gardens and be able to be re-assembled elsewhere
• With teams made up of practitioners from diverse backgrounds

The successful winning entrants will be required to work with RBG Kew and Museum of Architecture to realise the Treehouse onsite as well as to provide information for project components such as the gallery exhibition, programming, publications, marketing and press and commercial activities associated with the project.

Key Dates & Renumeration

This will be a two-stage competition run by The Museum of Architecture in partnership with RBG Kew. Stage 1 is an Expression of Interest including a standard Kew Questionnaire for review by the jury, and key members of Kew and MoA. Stage 2 will be a submission and presentation to the Jury and key members of RBG Kew and MoA.

Expressions of Interest will be judged, and a shortlist of nine practices (three per treehouse) will be chosen to proceed to stage 2.

Nine practices will be awarded £2,500 plus vat for the second stage of the competition. If chosen as a competition winner, practices will receive £10,000 + vat and up to £4,500 + vat for travel and accommodation to complete the project. Total £12,500 + vat.

CUBE Competition 2021

CUBE is a new competition in the UK led by partners Ampersand and A4MT and its aim is to drive energy use reduction in commercial buildings through gamification and human behaviour. They believe that achieving net zero carbon in our buildings is not just about the buildings, but about the way we use them, and while there will inevitably be a need for money to be spent on becoming more sustainable there are simpler first steps to net zero – namely through changing behaviour.

• CUBE has been running in France for six years and delivers energy and equivalent annual cost savings of between 12% and 55% for the likes of BNP Paribas and Orange – through simple interventions and without significant investment
• Where investments have been made, there is a return and payback has been relatively quick (within the 12 month competition timeframe)
• Ampersand believes we need to look at net zero carbon as a responsibility but also as an investment that will pay back, and make buildings healthier in the process
• We also need to change the nature of the landlord and tenant relationship so it’s not about ‘imposing’ green leases but embracing them in the spirit of working together for mutual benefit
• And to create a community of occupiers, landlords and building managers where best practice and ideas are shared – which is exactly what CUBE is set up to do
• We mustn’t scare the industry when it comes to net zero, we need to offer solutions – if we all take small steps together, we can make a huge difference

Both literally and figuratively, humanity resides in the midst of two distinct trends. While we yearn to be closer to nature and experience her beauty, we are being increasingly brutalized by her harshest elements.

We watch as the changing climate brings natural calamity and damage to a larger group of people and a wider swath of geography. We watch the increasing frequency and strength of nature wreaking havoc among our communities.

2. Background of Competition:

  • Established in 1983, the current Goyang City Hall was originally constructed as a county office for 200,000 population, so its structure stability is vulnerable for current use.

  • At present, 10 additional outside city halls are being used to resolve insufficient space of the current city hall, but not only the scattered spaces have resulted in inconvenience to users but also caused a great amount of rental expenses.
  • Thus, in order to integrate the old and scattered city hall spaces and to provide high-quality administrative services to 1,090,000 citizens of Goyang-si, an international design competition is planned to establish a new city hall that is both future-oriented and environmentally friendly by reflecting various kinds of domestic and international ideas.

What is a prison? Prison is a place where inmates are confined and denied a variety of freedoms under the authority of the state as punishment for various crimes. But is this all to a prison? Can’t prison serve to be more than just a set up to punish the convicts?

Recidivism is not a very rare occurrence. It’s time to put out the question, why? Why do convicts go back to their old means as soon as they are released from the prison? Why are prisons failing to contribute to society?

Global Warming is a term almost everyone is familiar with. It is one of the biggest issues we are dealing with. In the upcoming years, global warming can affect us in many treacherous ways.

The first and foremost effect is polar ice caps melting. As the temperature increases, the ice at the North Pole will melt. Once the ice melts, the first effect will be a rise in sea levels because the melting glaciers become oceans. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center “if the ice melted today the seas would rise about 230 feet”. It affects many low-lying areas such as the Netherlands.
