That is all the time you have to show us what you’ve got.

The competition is 120 hours of intense work. Open for students from all over the world. You can either enter as a single person, or in teams of up to three persons working together.

The assignment will be released February 29th 2016, at 14.00 (GMT+1) and from that point on you have 120 hours to work, work, work, before entry closes on Saturday 5th of March 2016 at 14.00 (GMT+1). Remember that we are called 120 HOURS, so even though we are the nicest bunch of people, there is no mercy when it comes to our time limit. If you are late, you are too late.

The theme for last year’s competition was experimental preservation.

The assignment challenged you to redefine the traditional concepts of preservation, to question existing frameworks and experiment beyond established rules. We also promised to give an exceptional site from which to develop ideas, enrich the debate and shed light on the future of preservation in architecture.
