The Stone Barn Meditation Camp architecture competition is a partnership with SRED property developers to create a multipurpose recreational space. Participants are tasked with presenting ideas for a venue which focuses on wellness tourism, and offers holistic outlets such as meditation and yoga. The Stone Barn Meditation Camp will act as a guest house, located in a repurposed stone barn in the heart of Latvia, with the aim of further popularising eco tourism. As one of the greenest countries in Europe Latvia already benefits from a thriving ecotourism trade. 
The Stone Barn Meditation Camp will look to become a regional example for green building practice. As competition winners will be put forward for consideration for construction, designs will need to place a strong emphasis on eco-friendly and cost-effective building techniques.

Designs for the building complex in this competition will need to include: accommodation for guests of the meditation camps and other small events; permanent accommodation for the groundskeeper; and an inventive and eco-friendly use of space for guests to practice meditation and yoga.

ELIGIBILITY

Competition is open for all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum).
