150,000€ Kingspan’s MICROHOME

(29 April 2024: registration deadline)

30 May 2024: submission deadline

The MICROHOME Kingspan Edition is an exciting development in the evolution of the MICROHOME architecture competition, marking the seventh edition of this esteemed event. This special edition is hosted by Buildner in a key partnership with Kingspan, a collaboration that showcases a mutual vision and shared objectives, amplifying the reach and impact of the competition with a substantially increased prize fund of €150,000.

The Buildner-Kingspan partnership embodies a united commitment to drive forward architectural design, particularly in the realm of small-scale, sustainable, and affordable living solutions. The shared ethos rests on the belief that innovative design, quality, and sustainability are of paramount importance, and that they can create transformative solutions without being restricted by size.

The MICROHOME Kingspan Edition invites participants to conceptualize an off-grid modular dwelling that would accommodate a hypothetical young professional couple. This scenario serves as the benchmark family size for the competition. The total floor area of the structure should not exceed 25 m2, thereby encouraging participants to push their creativity and innovate within these parameters.

The competition challenges participants to radically rethink spatial organization, to introduce distinctive aesthetics, and to implement state-of-the-art technologies and materials. The end objective is to propel the micro home from a mere architectural form to a revolutionary genre in its own right.

There are no geographical restrictions on the hypothetical sites for these designs, allowing for unlimited creativity. Whether urban or rural, any location worldwide can be the backdrop for these micro homes. Designs that prioritize sustainability and present solutions to economic, social, and cultural challenges through fresh architectural methods will receive preference.

The MICROHOME Kingspan Edition is an opportunity to contribute to the evolution of residential architecture. It looks forward to uncovering visionary designs and innovative ideas that are poised to redefine the future of micro-living.

The MICROHOME Jury:

– Brent Trenga, Director of Sustainability, Kingspan Insulated Panels, USA

JUNE 2024

The Home of Shadows / Edition #2

(2 May 2024: registration deadline)

4 June 2024: submission deadline

Buildner presents the second edition of the Home of Shadows architecture competition. This event once again highlights the crucial interplay between light and shadow in creating functional and inviting living spaces.

Natural light is not just a vital aspect in home design for its practicality, but it also transforms spaces into welcoming and comfortable havens. It enables architects to infuse emotion and ambiance into their designs, giving life to structures beyond their physical form.

Similarly, shadows are not to be overlooked. They are essential in adding depth, texture, and mood to spaces. The strategic placement of architectural elements like windows or doors can dramatically affect how light and shadow interact, shaping the overall atmosphere of a home.

The second edition of the Home of Shadows competition maintains its unique challenge. Participants are invited to design a home for a fictional couple, with a special condition – the total elimination of artificial light. Every submitted design is expected to demonstrate a deep understanding of how natural light influences architectural choices, and how it can be harnessed to create fully functional and aesthetically pleasing living environments.

Contestants are free to choose any imaginary location for their design projects, offering a diverse backdrop for the exploration of light and shadow. Buildner looks forward to receiving innovative entries that showcase a harmonious blend of technical skill and creative insight, illuminating the endless possibilities that lie within the dance of light and shadow in architectural design.

LOM’s travel bursary for architecture students

Friday 3 May 2024: deadline

LOM’s travel bursary for architecture students in memory of Karla Roman

Shoreditch-based practice, LOM architecture and design is accepting entries for its annual travel scholarship worth £2,500.

LOM set up an annual travel bursary in memory of Karla Roman, a talented architect and colleague who was killed while cycling to work in February 2017. As well as the UK, Karla worked in Italy and in her native Brazil. She travelled to build her architectural knowledge, and the Karla Roman Travel Bursary was established to enable other architecture students to do the same.

Open to all UK and international students at any stage of their studies, studying architecture or similar as a full or part-time undergraduate or postgraduate student. The bursary gives future architects and interior design students the opportunity to travel as part of their education and apply up to £2,500. It will be awarded to the applicant providing the most creative and compelling case for support, with financial circumstances and need being taken into account.

LOM’s travel bursary for architecture

Farid Abdulla, a previous bursary recipient, expressed that “Experiencing a change of environment facilitated a cognitive shift and a clarity of thought, particularly regarding my career as a designer and urbanist. I discovered layers of imagination that I will continue to nurture, as well as an appreciation for where best to place myself when I finish my studies. The bursary allowed me to have a beautiful experience that has forever changed me.”

LOM Director, Richard Hutchinson added that Karla Roman was “an extraordinarily talented colleague who rapidly became a key member of our team, set on course for a very promising career but was taken far too soon. It was therefore deeply important to us all at the practice to establish this bursary in 2018 in Karla’s name to help expand the minds and experiences of other aspiring designers.”

Another previous winner of the award, Eleanor Hyde, said that “The opportunity to travel to a country with a very different culture from the UK has proved to be an invaluable experience to my thinking as an architect, informing my design approach, broadening my knowledge and helping to shape my way of thinking in the future.”

LOM would like to hear from applicants for the 2024 bursary by Friday 3rd May 2024 with a view to travel this summer, approximately between June and October 2024.

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

13 June 2023, 12.00hrs (BST) : submission deadline

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 https://ribacompetitions.com/nr-timepiece. 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.
