Boarding 2014- Europese prijsvraag voor jonge architecten
Arc en rêve, het architectuurcentrum van Bordeaux (F) roept jonge architecten, stedenbouwkundigen en landschapsarchitecten op om projecten in te dienen met als onderwerp 'Interactions'. Dit is het thema van een prijsvraag voor pas afgestudeerden (vanaf januari 2012) of voor teams, waarbij tenminste een teamlid pas is afgestudeerd.
Met het thema 'Interactions' gaat Arc en rêve samen met de Ecole nationale supérieure d’architecture et de paysage de Bordeaux, op zoek naar de betekenis van de openbare ruimte als ruimte voor interactie, uitwisseling en collectieve of individuele handelingen. En hoe jonge ontwerpers met hun eigen opvattingen bij dragen aan innovatieve inzichten over juist deze ruimtes.
Deadline voor bijdragen in het Frans of in het Engels is 18 mei 2014.
Een selectie van vijftien projecten wordt tentoongesteld tijdens de architectuurbiënnale van Bordeaux in het najaar 2014. Op de website van Arc en rêve staat meer informatie.
