Outer space has always captured the imaginations of the public. New advances in technology (including comet landings, the Orion Spacecraft, and large scale social experiments leading to exploration of Mars) mean that outer space is no longer a place only astronauts will get to experience – but something you and I can experience within our lifetimes

The 33rd Space Prize for International Students of Architectural Design

Warmth in Architecture: Humanity

Thoughts on the theme
Architecture is about creating space for human beings. The efforts self-evident and no one would doubt would raise a question on its endeavors. But modern architecture is engrossed in its functionality; presenting all its aspects it further gives way to amazing forms and efficiency in lieu of fundamental architectural value. Therefore, criterion for judgement for its success and failure relies on data and eye-opening exterior forms. Architecture slowly become a machine which has no warmth and introspection. No, rather it strives to resemble a machine.

Open defecation and urination are still rampant in urban and rural areas of developing economies and such practices pose a grave risk to the health

Call For Ideas: Tiny Library 2019 Architecture Competition

As the world is continuously transforming and expanding, the amount of data and information created every day is also increasing constantly. Human intellect today is expected to evolve at the same rate as our world to continue our journey into the future. Despite all the information, reading and self-learning remain the most powerful tools available to mankind to consume knowledge. Learning bolsters awareness, exposure and productivity, which in turn results into development.

Despite its importance, education is still inaccessible to many communities in remote locations around the world. Self-learning, especially through reading, is crucial for the society’s development.


The new competition "Photo of the Year" encourages students of architecture to look at architecture in interaction with its users: the children, young and old people who work, live and die in architecture.

The potential of architectural photography - also as an artistic development - helps challenge the way we look at and work with architecture, and in an image filled world the photo is today more relevant than ever before.  

The winners of the new architecture photo competition receive 5000 euro for

Call For Ideas: MIcro Housing 2019 Architecture Competition

Since the beginning of time, a HOME has continued to be an entity that is intimate to all living beings on the planet. Apart from being a physical shelter for humans and their daily lives, a home forms a distinct, intimate connection with its users.

This phenomenon has given rise to a new movement of Micro-Housing; one that commands the idea of simple but inventive living in today’s urban areas.
