Think Space Programme: First International Concept Degree Architectural Competition

Society of Architects organizes an international series of concept based architectural competitions entitled Think Space starting on 14 December 2010

Think Space serves as a platform for spatial experimentation and exchange of conceptual ideas. Each cycle lasts a calendar year and is constituted by four competitions under the annual theme determined by a guest curator. Each competition brief is formulated by a juror who is proposed by the guest curator and the organizing committee. At the end of the cycle a conference will be held in Zagreb under the annual theme along with the Award ceremony.

The Think Space program aims to bring together world renown and established figures with emerging voices (students and professionals) within the fields of architecture, landscape, design, the arts and the humanities.

The first competition brief developed by juror Mr Shohei Shigematsu of OMA New York, within the Think Space: Borders program challenges architects, designers and other participants to rethink Urban Borders.

Details of this first competition and complete information on the programme can be found on the official website.

Family House Pojatno / Centura

Courtesy of

The desire of a young married couple with two children was to have a house of modern expression that takes elements of local architecture. The architects were able to accomplish this by material selection of natural concrete, rough stone, aluminum, pine wood, glass, and through form and local spatial solutions, large porch and central fireplace.  This design creates space that provides privacy while emphasizing the best view to the landscape.
