The Kiribati Floating Houses competition calls on young architects to design a new dwelling model that could save the residents of Kiribati from rising sea levels.
The competition will provide a chance to step up to the climate change crisis in a practical way.
To participate in the Young Architects Competition, teams must include at least one architect under the age of 35. They have until January 22 to submit a design concept with a graphic framework and 3D views, an album of layouts and a cover text.
The floating house village must include domestic spaces, vegetable gardens, shelter for animals, pools for fishing and collective spaces for at least 100 people to gather.
“Kiribati Floating Houses invites architects to continue to imagine Kiribati as a paradise. The new Kiribati will rather be a skilful integration of nature- remaining and transformed nature- with the human intervention. The competition will award projects that propose feasible solutions and real technologies able to guarantee a life bursting with beauty and passions.”
There are twelve international experts on the jusry panel; generous prizes are offered.
