Emerge Competition

High unemployment and under-employment statistics amongst the youth in Zimbabwe cannot go unnoticed. The need for strategic partnerships is now evident.

Where can our youth acquire the work experience and skills necessary to keep driving our economy? Where can our young people meet business owners, like-minded peers and mentors or access business advice and support services to get their ideas off the ground?

In 2016, Emerge is addressing this issue through proposing a brief that rethinks the traditional youth centre building typology.

Emerge would like to see your new visions for a Youth and Entrepreneurship Centre.

The Youth and Entrepreneurship Centre aims to enhance the youth’s economic participation by providing incubation spaces that offer skills and mentorship programs.

This centre will integrate business incubation, skills training and social interaction in a safe and secure environment. It will be animated by the activity and opportunity offered in the spaces. Participants are called to create a dynamic landscape that reflects the vibrancy of such a centre.

If we can offer our youth spaces and opportunities to innovate in business and technology, we can start addressing the socio-economic problems that plague our country.

The competition is open to Zimbabwean architecture students, or related design fields, studying in any tertiary institution around the world in the year 2017. Winnings will go towards the students' fees.

-Only individual participation is accepted.
-Multiple entries from a person are not accepted.
-There is no registration fee for the competition.
-Winners may be asked to prove their nationality.
