Ideas contest launched for South Korean gymnasium
The South Korean city of Daegu has launched an open ideas contest for a new sports complex
Planned to start on site in 2015, the new facility will serve residents in the rapidly growing Dalseong-gun district.
The project – launched during the district’s centenary year – will replace an existing ‘small and outdated’ gymnasium.
Organised by the Daegu Architectural Culture Confederation on behalf of Daegu Metropolitan City, the competition is open to professional architects and students and graduates of architecture.
The winner – set to be announced 30 September – will receive around £18,000 and be invited to further develop the designs.
A second place prize of £6,000 and third place award worth £3,000 are also available. Ten honourable mentions will each meanwhile receive a plaque.
All entries will be exhibited in the 2014 Daegu Architecture Culture Biennale from 30 October to 8 November.
Submissions can be in English and the deadline for registration is 31 July.
