As a part of the flagship project for the EU-China Urbanization partnership, the Shenzhen Institute of Building Research Co., Ltd. (IBR) has announced its "Demand▪ Technology▪ Space Creative Competition" for the Future Low Carbon Building and Community Innovation New Experimental Center, also known as the Future Center.

Located in the underdeveloped Pingdi Subdistrict of Shenzhen, the project site is a part of the Shenzhen International Low Carbon City, a roughly 53 square kilometer area less than two hours away from Hong Kong with the goal of utilizing low-carbon and carbon-zero technologies in order to significantly boost sustainable development.

IBR is calling for submissions from individuals, teams, and even research institutes, design institutions, and any others, to participate in one, two, or all three of the competition’s categories.

Category A, the Demand Creative Competition, “is targeted towards potential users of the Future Center, where contestants are encouraged to use their imagination freely regarding their living and working models in future low carbon buildings and communities, under the background of the information age.”

The Technology Innovation Competition—Category B—“is oriented towards all institutions which are involved with the exploration and innovation of low-carbon building technology and product fields, looking for the prime highlighted technologies and products that may be applied or demonstrated in the Future Center project.”

Category C, the Architectural Design Competition, asks building designers to explore future forms of architecture that are "shareable" and "changeable."

Registration closes on October 10 at 17:00. Submissions for Categories A and B must be entered before October 20, and Category C submissions must be entered before November 10. Learn more about the competition, here.
