The Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) is inviting architecture students to design an observation tower made entirely of structural steel, in profile or slabs. Although more theoretical projects are also valued, participants will be expected to demonstrate a good understanding of the material and its possibilities as well as to present the elaboration of achievable details. CISC also offers participating students the opportunity to design in collaboration with local steel manufacturers. The winning team will receive a prize of $3,000.
The RE-Stock London Housing architecture competition is the Bartlett School of Architecture initiative in partnership with Bee Breeders Architecture Competition Organisers and ARCHHIVE BOOKS where participants are asked to look at existing iconic council housing and RE-visit, RE-imagine, RE-invigorate and RE-think them. Looking at different iconic housing schemes, participants are free to either extend these existing buildings and transform them, or by echoing their spirit with newly design buildings on a site of their choice within London.
