Archistart, continuing the focus on tourism themes, promotes Floating Room Competition, a contest aimed at imagining an experimental architecture, a floating Hotel Room, a privileged point of view and a new link with the landscape or the urban context.
The competition requires to design a double/twin “special room” with restroom, imagining it to be placed on natural or artificial water bodies, like Lake Iseo or La Darsena (Milan’s city dock) – by way of example, participants are asked to locate the designed room in one or both these reference sites indeed. The proposals will be evaluated considering the relationship with the context and the architectural innovation level.
The architectural volume should have a maximum size of 25 sq m, a maximum height of 5 m and it should be based on a platform of max 30 sq m. The room should be provided with a sleeping accommodation for 2 people, a restroom/wellness area and any possible special spaces.
Archistart for FRC2017 offers three prizes for a total of 2,500 Euros.
1st place 1,500 €
2nd place 700 €
3rd place 300 €
