The European Velo Stops architecture competition is tasking participants with designing rest stop cabins for travellers along Europe’s large-scale EuroVelo cycle path network.
Designs for the cabins will need to ensure that they can be replicated at multiple locations along the EuroVelo 6 route, which traverses the continent from the Atlantic ocean to the Black Sea.The jury are looking for simple designs in keeping with the natural surroundings, rather than overly sophisticated projects that have the potential to mar the landscape.
The European Velo Stops competition is now open, with submissions accepted up until October 19, 2018. Winning designs will receive a share of US $6,000 in prize money, and will be considered for construction as a part of the Bright Blueprint initiative as a way to help support Europe’s Velo culture.
