The contest, which is single-stage, asks entrants to submit proposals for both an ‘ideas competition’ and a ‘design and build competition’.

The first contest focuses on CERN’s ‘structure and layout’ and has a prize fund of 80,000 Swiss Francs.

The second part is concerned with the design and build of a new ‘emblematic’ public entrance and reception area to the institute. The prize fund for the winner is 120,000 Swiss Francs.
