Solar Powered Shelter(s) Design Competition

Concordia University’s CoLLaboratoire invites young creative practitioners, be they students or recent graduates, to consider the role of public art and design in increasing awareness of, and engagement in, issues around climate change at the local level. This design competition is part of a series of activities conducted by the Montreal-based not-for-profit CoLLaboratoire initiative, whose main objective is the realization of a series of art-based interactive installations that address some critical theme of sustainable living in the city.

The Project

The project consists of designing the shelter(s) at the Loyola campus of Concordia University, which will also include solar energy. The participants may or may not use the existing structure. Teams will develop ideas that can both educate and encourage public conversation that might heighten awareness around climate change issues. The proposal should be well documented technically and intended for further development.

Prizes and Awards

The winning team will work closely with a team of academics, professionals, and researchers to complete the technical development for realization in early 2017 on the Loyola Campus of Concordia University. The maximum allowable budget for the project build-out is $23,000 (all taxes included). ​

  • ​1st prize $1750
  • ​(+compensation for additional design work up to $1500)
  • 2nd prize $750
  • 3rd Prize $350
  • Popular Vote 250$
