Architects in Mission Competition

Architects in Mission Competition

Architects in Mission (AIM) Competition is organized by Zeybekoglu Nayman Associates (ZNA), and its goal is to promote high quality design among architecture students and young professionals, and to provide a stage for them to demonstrate their design gifts and abilities.

Cable 8 was a factory complex in Beijing, China, producing electrical cables, and has recently evolved into a re-vitalized incubator for art and design. The low rise Cable 8 buildings, with their ivy-covered brick walls, form a sharp contrast to the high rise structures that have sprung up around it.

Participants are asked to come up with strategies and mechanisms that will improve Cable 8, making it more susceptible to the rapidly changing urban landscape, and perform better as a cultural carrier that helps to diversify the otherwise homogeneous nature of the CBD area. Participants can either improve the existing buildings in Cable 8 or introduce new architecture.

For more information, visit the competition’s official website.
