The Great Kemeri Bog Visitor Center architecture competition is now open until October 12. Winning designs will be put forward for consideration for construction by the Latvia Nature Conservation Agency, as well as receiving US $6,000 in prize funds.
Kemeri National Park one of the largest national parks in Latvia, and this competition is calling for submissions for an iconic and functional entranceway visitor centre. The entrance point will need to provide several key facilities – such as an information centre, terrace area, and playground, as well as a car park and ticket booth.
It is a chance for architecture enthusiasts to design something iconic, with the potential to become a noted landmark, all within the stunning natural surroundings of the national park. It is therefore vital that the structure be in keeping with its surroundings, while at the same time standing out. Source and images Courtesy of Bee Breeders.
