Competition :: 2010 Student Wall

Following the success of 2008 Bridge Design Competition, National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT) School of Architecture would like to further the event, by offering a second design competition to foster idea dialogues among students. Building upon past experiences, NTUT hopes to enhance the platform on which global exchanges can take place. Given architecture’s recent involvement with sustainability and global warming, this competition calls for creative responses to these environmental concerns.

This competition takes on an elemental perspective to architectural design and sustainability. Entrants are to imagine and produce creative proposals for an "ecological" WALL. The evaluation and definition of "WALL" are open to applicants’ imaginations. While "ecological" could have many definitions: social, economical, sustainable, etc, it remains open to applicants' re-evaluation. Entrants are free to choose or make a site, real or virtual.

Open to international students in the fields of architecture and design related disciplines from an accredited four-year or five-year architecture program. Teamed collaboration consisting of students in the above mentioned fields is permitted. Works submitted must be of applicants' original works. Works done through school studios are accepted, but limited to 2010 Spring term.

Various Awards: $50,000 Grand Prize (Cash or gifts of equal value) - (3) $5,000 Honorable Mentions
Registration Deadline: 05/12/2010
Submission Deadline: 05/19/2010
