SELF CONSTRUCTION COMPETITION
make real your ideas…
The association archiSTART after the success of past iniziatives “Taranta Power Station” and “Leverano Horizon Tower”, presents with the partnership of the city of Lecce SCC_Self Construction Competition, an architectural competition of ideas for students and young architects .
The competition has the aim of enhancing the space within the walls of the Ostello del Sole in San Cataldo (only 15km away from Lecce) through the realization of some installations.
The installations created will characterize the scenario within which the next edition of the International Architecture Holiday will take place in August, with 100 young men and women from all over the world. These will then be exhibited during the entire workshop and during the entire summer period.
A real opportunity for all of the participating teams to gain visibility and confront themselves with the problems arising from the direct realization of a project by evaluating its aesthetic, functional, and economic aspects.
These installations will be completely developed by the winning groups with the support of the archiSTART team who will coordinate the production process and will allocate a budget of 1000 €.
Actually the winning teams will be hosted in San Cataldo, in the Ostello del Sole from 22 to 29 July 2015; one full week completely dedicated to the choice of the materials to be used, as well as to the development of the project.
During “IAH Summer 15” event (from the 1st to 9th of August 2015) the installations will be seen and used by professionals, students and young architects.
The teams will can choose one of the two different project areas described in detail in the program.
