INTERNATIONAL STUDENT CONCRETE COMPETITION LAUNCHED

  • Comment
CONCRTETE QUARTERLY / WINTER 05 - ROUND UP

The second international concrete-design competition for students has been launched by The Concrete Centre. The theme is 'plastic-OPACITY', drawing on key concrete characteristics: versatility, plasticity and opacity.

The competition is held in the UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Italy and Turkey. Entrants will examine concrete's potential for spatial transparency and for the engagement of shadow, light and tactility.

They will also examine the structural and environmental potential of concrete and possibilities of new techniques such as weaving, punching and folding. Jurors include Graham Morrison of Allies and Morrison; Sean Griffiths of FAT; Mark Swenarton of Oxford Brookes University and Jerry Van Eyck of West 8. Visit www. concretedesigncompetition. com
