UIA-HYP CUP INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN 2015
Architecture in Transformation should make responses to current situation and era. What concerns us is the relationship between architecture and city, and between architecture and natural environment. The competition aims at searching and constructing human space with a sense of place in the increasingly fragmented cities and unordered villages, exploring environment-friendly and sustainable ideas in the information age, and integrating creative design concepts with solid basic skills effectively in architectural education. The competition requires the participants to make detailed examinations and reflections on architectural history, exploring complicated requirements to architecture and environment by current users, pay attention to events in specific sites, and configure viable urban and architectural spaces.
