In this competition, we challenge participants to propose innovative rooftop designs that not only offer a sanctuary for meditation, but also actively endorse and uplift the practice of mindfulness in an urban setting – only 1 drawing, with absolute freedom of scale, site or program.

We invite designers to imagine a solution that harmoniously blend the serenity of meditation spaces with the dynamic energy of the urban environment, by pushing the boundaries of creativity.

Participants are encouraged to redefine traditional urban space design and contribute to enhance well-being, promoting more serene and sustainable lifestyle choices centered around meditation.

Consider factors like privacy, quiet areas, access, and soundproofing. Also, think about how your design could attract people who haven’t tried meditation before to start practicing it as part of their daily lives.
