Adaptable Futures launch student competition

Loughborough University has launched a student ideas contest for proposals looking at structures’ changing roles over time

Adaptable Futures, based at Loughborough University, invite students to submit plans for buildings that address ‘adaptability in the built environment’ and consider the changing roles a building may have over a set period of time.

The international research group say ‘The competition serves as a platform for interested students to visualise some of the research’s core elements within their design proposals and to recognise the top submissions for their creative application and appropriation of those concepts.’

The jury includes Charles Holland, Director, FAT architecture, Daisy Froud, Director, AOC, David Rowley, Director, Nightingale Associates, Paul Warner, Director, 3D Reid Architects, Søren Nielsen, Director, Vandkunsten and Megumi Matsubara, co-Founder, Assistant.

Proposals should illustrate physical and social changes over an hour, day, year or longer.

Submitted entries may cover any scale from communities to individual houses. Any site location will also be accepted.

A £3,000 prize fund will be divided between the top three entrants.

Registration must be completed by 1 June
