OPENGAP organizes the second edition of this open ideas competition seeking for innovative, cutting-edge, contemporary, proposals, committed to a strategy of implementing architecture in a protected natural environment. Approaches should point to find synergies between nature and the building itself.
Participants are invited to find spaces that promote a deep understanding and assimilation of nature. Projects must lead through their architecture to sensitivity, awareness, understanding, enthusiasm and commitment to the natural environment around them.
Each participant or team will define the location of their Project; such as: natural parks, protected natural areas, forests, jungles, beaches, mountains, etc. However, the proposal must justify the choice of the location and the interaction reached between the project and the site’s environment.
The competition is open to all architects, designers, architecture students and to people around the world interested in the topic. Competitors can subscribe individually or as a team of maximum of 5 people.
The proposal submission will consist of two digital panles in .jpg format, not bigger than 4MB each.
