CHART ARCHITECTURE competition, a key element of CHART SOCIAL, was launched in 2014 to promote young Nordic architects and explore the crossovers between art and architecture. In 2017 CHART is extending the call for applications to young and newly established architectural practices, as well as welcoming students and recent graduates from the Nordic architecture schools.
The participants will be asked to design and create pavilions to house gastronomy partners and SPACE10 during CHART ART FAIR. The theme of this year’s competition is THE LIVING CITY, which will focus on current topics as sustainable urbanisation, renewable resources and the need for innovation of production methods by for example upcycling and recycling. The winners of this year’s competition will be offered a mentorship programme that is aimed to stimulate their careers as well as to promote cross-sector collaboration and networking.
The 2017 competition is judged by Bjarke Ingels, architect and founder of BIG Bjarke Ingels Group; Bjørnstjerne Christiansen, co-founder of SUPERFLEX; Claus Andersen, owner of Andersen’s Contemporary; Débora Mesa, architect and Principal of Ensamble Studio; Dorte Foss, architect; and Simon Frommenwiler, architect and co-founder of HHF Architects.
