FUTURE MONUMENTS – (Porte Saint Denis) What is the role of the Monument in 2020? As part of our research themes for 2019/2020 the school has launched an international architecture competition entitled ‘Future Monuments’.

The competition brief is straightforward; to design a monument, architectural structure, piece of public art or new programme that discusses the themes described in this specificurban territory and question the function of a monument in 2020. Responses could imagine what the old idea of a ‘gate’ or ‘border’ could provide today.

The competition submissions will be judged by a jury composed of staff at the Paris School of Architecture and external visiting critics invited for this specific competition.

The results will be published on the school webpage and will be part of a specific online publication that includes interviews of the winning entries, as well as a show curated by the graphic and communication team of the school.

The shortlisted entries will be exhibited in Paris from Friday 6th December – Tuesday 10th December and will be open to members of the public.

The winning entry will receive an honorarium of €500 which may be used towards their travel and accommodation during their stay in Paris for the exhibition.

The ‘Future Monuments’ competition is an open architectural and urban competition that questions the site in terms of usages, programs, forms, symbolic and narrative. Architects, students of architecture or associated disciplines, designers and artists may enter.
