OLIAROS, a young property development company, is calling architects up to 35 years old to submit proposals for the construction of an affordable student housing complex in Kerameikos and Metaxourgeio (KM), an area in the historic centre of Athens, Greece.
The selection process consists of two stages: first all participants need to submit Schematic Design proposals due by September 7th 2009, at which point the jury will select the 5 finalists who will be invited to submit Design development propositions due in January 11th 2010. The 5 finalist submissions will be exhibited in situ together with all the Schematic Design propositions during October 1st-4th, at which point the public can vote via SMS for one of the 5 finalists. The final winner will be determined in January 2010 by the seven votes of the jury plus one deriving from the public, the “public vote”. The five finalists will receive 3000 Euro each when invited to participate in the Design Development stage, while the final winner will receive 10.000 Euro plus the 30.000 Euro commission.
