The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and HP are pleased to announce 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 EUR) will be distributed at the discretion of the Juries following the bases scheme. The competition jury, which is composed of architects, professionals in a wide range of fields and directors of some of the world's foremost architecture schools, is looking for outstanding proposals at any scale, for any city in the world on Smart Cities, Eco neighborhoods, Self-sufficient buildings, Intelligent homes or any other proposal that analyzes the phenomena of Self-sufficient Habitats.
