Courtesy of and DeCorbuziers, in partnership with the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens, have announced their international student competition to design a conceptual funerary monument for the death of Modernism.

With this year marking the 50th anniversary of Le Corbusier’s death, the team of organizations is seeking “contemporary interpretations concerning multidisciplinary approaches over Modernism and specifically over Le Corbusier’s work, while [exploring] possible themes and directions of the memorial representation” in present day. Designs should emphasize commentary, rather than a tribute to Le Corbusier.

With the End of the Modern Movement—the demolition of AIA Award-winning housing project at Pruitt Igoe on March 16, 1972—in mind, the competition asks if Modernism is really dead and buried what would a memorial for Modernism look like, and how Modernism has a role in current times.

Students may enter individually or as teams, and submissions are due November 15. Winners of the competition will be exhibited at ROMANTSO in Athens, Greece from December 20 to 27. Learn more about the competition here.
