Free International Competition to Design a Beautiful House
WANT TO DESIGN A HOME THAT IS A LIVING WORK OF ART?
BWi International is now accepting entries for its Design a Beautiful House competition, an international call offering £25,000 (about $39,000 USD) to winner(s). The competition is open to all designers, landscape architects, architects, students, artists, and others from anywhere across the globe, and requires no registration fee.
Entrants are asked to think about the definition of beauty in order to create a design that considers the ways that beauty and aesthetics can enhance the function of a home whilst creating a living work of art.
The site of the project was formerly a golf course and club house, and is now composed “of one residential dwelling with several out buildings, a boat house and jetty that is surrounded by larger lakes and agricultural/ forestry land.”
Home designs should accommodate four adults and three children, along with room for guests, and needs to take into account environmental considerations, the relationship between built and natural spaces, practicality, and the needs of the seven residents, whose concerns include noise, flexibility, accessibility, and light, among other specifications.
A key factor of the competition is anonymity, so entries—which include design statements, digital A1 boards, site plans, drawings, and a 3D representation—must be submitted under a username that does not disclose the identity of the participant.
The Judging Panel is comprised of highly acclaimed international members of the fields of art, design, architecture and landscape: Fokke Moerel of MVRDV, Neil Porter of Gustafson-Porter, Mick Finch of Central Saint Martin’s, and Ed Hollis architect and author of the School of Life’s ‘How to Make a Home’.
Registration and entries will be accepted through September 30. For any registered individuals or teams, questions about the competition must be submitted by August 15.
