Competitions: Editor's Pick, 3.11.11

Redundant military sites, a student lighting competition and innovative fabricated structures. The editor’s pick of this week’s top competitions

Architecture for Humanity’s ideas contest seeks new proposals for the world’s disused military installations. With the number of these sites on the increase, innovative plans for their feasible re-use are now in demand. Students or practising architects can pick a local site or select from a list of worldwide sites. [Registration must be completed by 31 March 2012]

Velux has launched the ‘Light of Tomorrow’ student design competition with a total prize fund of €30,000 (£26,000). The brief calls for ‘open-minded and experimental’ lighting solutions which take account of sunlight’s effect on people and its potential as a natural source of energy. [Registration must be completed by 1 March 2012]

Digital fabrication alliance Tex-Fab has floated the ‘Design to Fabricate’ contest looking for structures which employ new design concepts in their construction. In this two-stage competition, entrants can enter both early concepts and schemes which are ready for full-scale fabrication. Four proposals will be given a development stipend of $1,250 (£775), with the winning design being built. [Submissions should be received by 31 March 2012]
