Writing Competition KVDF 2022

The intention of the Kurula Varkey Design Forum has been to curate discussions centered around the thoughts of students and young graduates. It has constantly tried to bring the agency which students hold, to forefront; to provide a platform for students to display their opinions to the profession they’ll be entering soon. Writing becomes a tool to examine one’s own thoughts; at the same time it provides an important platform to express one’s voice to a larger community. Eager to provide a podium for contemplation and expression in the field of architecture, we’re pleased to announce ‘KVDF Writing Competition 2022’, for students of architecture, planning, design, and other associated fields to put down their ideas and opinions through persuasive, inspiring, and influential writing.

Museum of Emotions / Edition #2

It may not be your first instinct when entering a building to consider how it makes you feel, but architecture has always had a big impact on emotions. Different spaces are designed to make its inhabitants feel different things; offices can make you feel energised and productive, art galleries can make you feel thoughtful and curious, and museums can make you feel calm and intrigued. Each of these spaces are completely different from each other and are far more than just a building.

Call for entries: A Rehabilitation Centre for Terrorism Victims in Iraq

Tamayouz Excellence Award invites architects and designers to submit their ideas for a Rehabilitation Centre for Terrorism Victims in Iraq. The rehabilitation centre should offer a safe and comfortable space for the patients, supporting their health, psychological and physical needs.


The idea of the contest is to work on objects that create tension in spaces, generating future projections that bring new visions and strategies to implement a place through an open and dynamic process. The object in question is a “catalyst”, that intervenes with its strength in an urban space and changes it. In this scenario in which the city is protagonist, what generate interaction? The reflection focuses on Architecture, its function, transience and the relationship with the outside. It may disappear one day, but the void left around it is only apparent since what it creates remains over time. An object symbol that somehow establishes a new spatial, social and cultural dimension. Questioning the urban space means meditating around the “emptiness” of the city, understood as a “place” of social events, forms, meanings, in which its own identity is reflected. Spaces live through change.

Deadline Extended: Micro Housing 2022 Architecture Competition

“HOME” is a space that is intimate to all living beings on the planet. It has a broader, deeper and personal connection with its user apart from being a physical shelter for humans and their daily lives, a home forms a distinct, intimate connection with its users. The ultimate goal for a home is to ignite “the idea of belonging” within its sphere and amongst all those sharing the space.

Babyn Yar Masterplan Open Ideas Competition

On September 29 and 30, 1941, more than 33,000 Jewish men, women, and children were murdered in Babyn Yar, a ravine in the Ukrainian capital Kiev. This event constituted one of the largest single massacres perpetrated by German troops against Jews during World War II. Over the following two years, Germans killed upwards of 70,000 more people. Upon evacuating the city in 1943, the bodies were exhumed and burned. Babyn Yar is the international symbol of what is known today as the “Holocaust by Bullets.”
