Facts about the competition
You need to be a student at KADK or Aarhus School of Architecture to participate in the competition.
The requirements for participating in the competition are:
- that concrete is an important material in the project
- that the use of concrete is sustainably justified
- that the project is aesthetically well-considered
You must describe the project on an overall level, why concrete is an important material in the project, the sustainable use of concrete, and your aesthetic deliberations.
Three projects are nominated. They will be exhibited at KADK’s stall at Building Green, on 31 October 2019, in Copenhagen. The winner receives a statement from the jury and is chosen following a panel debate on what is needed to kick-start a more sustainable use of concrete in the building sector.
The panel and the jury consist of six members: Professor Anne Beim, KADK; Head of Institute Natalie Mossin, KADK; PhD Jon Kråhling Engholt, Aarhus School of Architecture; industry sector executive Dorthe Mathiesen, Dansk Beton, The Danish Construction Association; Architect Anne-Mette Manelius, Vandkunsten; and Director Kasper Guldager Jensen, GXN.
The winner receives a travel grant of DKK 10,000, to be used for seeing inspirational concrete projects. The project that receives the 1st prize, will be mentioned with an article in Dansk Beton’s magazine BETON. The magazine is published quarterly in 6,000 copies and on social media. There will also be a follow-up on the use of the travel grant: a travel description, which will also be published.
You must submit two to three pages (A4) as a PDF file: one page of description and one to two pages containing images and/or drawings. Send the file to firstname.lastname@example.org. The file may not exceed 19 MB. The images should support the description of the project. All pages must contain the student’s name, year group, affiliation with KADK/Aarhus School of Architecture and contact information in the form of an email address and a phone number.
The deadline for entries is 6 September 2019.
