The Picardie Region and the Free State of Thuringia are joint organisers of the Europe-wide architecture and design competition adream, which is endowed with 30,000 Euros of prize money and a 50,000 Euro budget for developing prototypes.
Students and professionals are once again invited to take part in the 2012 competition by submitting creative and innovative projects to identify new potential uses of renewable and ecological materials.
The aim of the bilateral project is to support and promote a viable economy with natural resources through contemporary designs using such materials.
There are two potential financial rewards for the best and most innovative projects and architectural or design concepts, the first being prize money for winners and the other, budgets for developing protoypes and taking ideas further. An additional bonus will be the opportunity to build up contacts with research facilities and the industrial sector.
To participate, interested architects and designers, whether students or professionals, should obtain information on ecological materials and the competition in general from the competition website - www.adream2012.eu – which will open on 1st March . Registration is also via this website.
Projects can be submitted online until 31st July 2012.
Picardie and Thuringia look forward to receiving all those creative ideas!
