Language: English
Location: Concept
Prizes: Please see the details below
Type: Open


The Challenge is to design a dedicated area which can host architecture juries/viva & pin up of other subjects. The aim of the competition is to develop a module of “Jury Space” which is innovative bold & dynamic, multifunctional, aesthetically appealing & most importantly it should be functional & user friendly.

As an architecture student we work on many different studio programs such as housing, commercials, healthcare , urban topics & many other design categories. Over the course of these 5 years, each student approximately pin’s up his/her work for approximately more than 50 times for juries & viva.

In most of the cases the pin up’s are done in the studio itself ( in that case one has to move drafting tables here & there to create some space for jurors while your friends mount on the table to see you get grilled and the rest are just standing for hours ). Other areas of pin up are an empty hall or along the corridor but here is one thing, none of these spaces are designed to host a jury in first place. We being the architecture students & architects actually force the function of taking jury in these spaces. The entire 5 years of the degree we are taught about space organization but when it comes to our own Pin – Up areas do you think we have done anything over the years ? To us it seems it very are just not organized when it comes to dedicated jury spaces.

Can you think of a space which is capable of holding standard architectural juries ? An enclosure that can serve as a gallery of works of students. A unit that can become the identity of your architecture college . A space where one feels motivated to give jury & has multiple plug and play space options depending on the use. If yes, then come join this revolutionary design problem & lets find a solution for the present & upcoming generation of architecture students.
