AIMS OF THE COMPETITION
To encourage innovative, contemporary and avant-garde architectural approaches that respond to the noticeable need for spaces intended for artistic inspiration and meditation, through projects that promote the psychological and emotional comfort of their users.
This competition of ideas does not specify any particular site or setting. Therefore, each contestant or team will be able to choose the location of their project. The project may be located either as a space of inspiration in a natural context or as an introspective shelter in the city, but isolated from the urban chaos. Nevertheless, participants will have to justify their choice of location for the project in the proposal. Since one of the aims of this competition is to search for heterogeneous proposals and various possible locations, we hope that this global diversity will enrich the final results.
