Type: Open competition for architecture students.
120 HOURS is the world’s largest and most prestigious student-driven architecture competition, created for and by architecture students.
120 HOURS introduced a brand new competition format, where students are given 120 hours to solve a complex and socially relevant assignment. By addressing topical discussions in both public and architecture debate, the competition aims to be a contributor of new thoughts and discussions within both social and cultural discourse.
120 HOURS is an independent competition organized on a non-profit, voluntary basis without the involvement of a school administration. 120 aims to give students a voice in the current architectural discourse. It is challenging and fun to participate in, and gives students a relevant first encounter with architectural competitions. In short, we want to give deserving young talents a head start at the game.
The competition is 120 hours of intense work. Open for students from all over the world. You can either enter as a single person, or in teams of up to three persons working together.
