CTRL+SPACE has launched an open ideas competition to create a new digital arts museum in the Spanish capital

Open to students and professionals, the contest seeks proposals for a new contemporary arts venue in the city’s vibrant Lavapiés district.

According to the brief:  ‘The aim of this competition is to create a museum devoted to the contemporary arts, in particular those that explore the more recent technologies as an integrated medium of work.

‘The winning design will demonstrate a high degree of expression and creativity in fulfilling the program requirements, in accordance with the specific design guidelines presented.’

The jury will include London-based architect Alex Bulygin and French architect Antoine Cardon.

The winner – set to be announced on 27 October – will receive a £2,800 prize. A second place prize worth £800 and third place prize of £400 are also available.

The registration fee is around £23 until 24 August and then increases to £40 until 24 September and rises again to £63 thereafter.

The deadline for submissions is 5 October.
