Finsa launches its competition for students of Architecture and Design for the second time. For this year's competition, the interaction between children and the elderly is the new focus. The International Finsa Award 2018 requires students to design a communal space for both children and the elderly; the space will need to provide facilities that can be found in a day centre for the elderly, along with facilities which can be found in children’s nurseries. There are numerous advantages that can be attributed to a space of this specification, not least improving relations between the adults and children who use such services. Additionally, such a multipurpose space can encourage further interaction with the neighbouring residents, more specifically, those who look after the children and the elderly using this space. The aim of the competition is for future A&D professionals to explore and redesign the use of wood and other ecological and recyclable materials in construction.
