Open Call: ARCH_TAIGA Annual International Contest of Architectural Ideas for Siberia

We invite architecture students, professional architects and designers to take part in the international architectural contest of ideas for Siberia “ARCH_TAIGA”. The project “ARCH_TAIGA” was created as a platform for architectural contests for students and young architects. Every year our team finds a challenging task and asks designers from all over the world to find the solution.

The aim of the project “ARCH_TAIGA” is to improve the training process and to stimulate exchange of ideas between architects, designers, builders and ordinary people of Siberia and other parts of the world. The project participants have got the opportunity to bring their ideas to other cultures, and it helps to enrich their own knowledge and skills.

The project “ARCH_TAIGA” was created on the territory of Siberia. Our team sees great potential in economic and social development of this territory. Siberian cities are developing very quickly, the territory is being actively explored, for the recent 25 years the Quality of Life have increased manifold. In 2019 XXIX Winter Universiade will be carried out in Krasnoyarsk. We strive to help the citizens of Siberian cities to aware themselves as a part of integral society, to organize living environment, to give local architects the possibility to learn the ideas of international colleagues who offer their decisions for Siberian land.

The main task of the contestants is to work out the project of an ice palace (winter amusement park), situated on one of the main playgrounds of Tatyshev island, which will become popular among citizens of Krasnoyarsk and also will attract tourist flow during Winter Universiade 2019.

Due to climatic characteristics of the region, while developing the project (namely, infrastructure facilities) it is preferable to take into account the possibility of using ice and snow. The snow part of the Park can add spice to the project and attract more people during winter time. The part of the construction, made of snow and ice, can be rebuilt annually, its interiors can be reformed and it will let artists and architects of the city to express themselves, working out new themes in the snow part of the Park.

According to the concept of “ARCH_TAIGA” not only professionals, such as architects, city planners, designers, but also amateurs can take part in the contest. The contestants can be either individuals or groups of people including specialists from related fields.

There is no registration fee in the contest.

The best projects and contest winners will be awarded prizes of the contest sponsors and laureate Diplomas.
