Open Call: Al Jouf Public Library Redesign Competition

The primary objective of the Al Jouf International Public Library Redesign Competition is to update the library’s function, use of space and design, in order to create an environment that accommodates for modern cultural flow and activity. The initiative aims to rethink the library’s function and transform its interiors from an outdated storage space for books, into an open, flexible, energy efficient and sustainable community center.

The competition is open to international bids, to enable diversity of submissions, as well as explore alternative solutions for space optimization and usage. The top 3 submitted designs will receive cash rewards, with the winning firm also being awarded the contract for the library project.


  • 1st Place – USD $50,000 + Contract 2nd Place – USD $37,500
  • 3rd Place – USD $25,000
