Madrid Digital Arts Museum -Ideas Competition


Ideas Competition

Registration and Submission by Oct.5th

In the daily practice of Architecture, competitions are an important part of the formative experience. When applied to concrete needs, by the mediation of context and content, they demonstrate the added value that architectural discussion can bring to the solution of issues of the community.

We provide a launching platform for a community of architects that have interest in making a contribution in their specialty field, keep creatively active and give more visibility to their professional practice.

Objective:

This is a single stage Ideas Competition with the aim of identifying the best proposal of a Museum devoted to the Digital Arts in the centre of Madrid, Spain.

We invite you to create innovative solutions to tackle the challenges presented.

In a way that pushes architectural design and ideas forward, the issue is raised of how the characteristics of Digital Art might be transposed into space, in a way that potentiates a better understanding of the exposed work.

The site chosen to develop this exercise is placed in the central part of Madrid, in one of its more vibrant neighborhoods, Lavapiés. On an urban point of view, this situation brings into question the inherent value of these urban voids, plots devoid of function but not of meaning or importance in the urban fabric. The location in vicinity with a wide array of museums and cultural Equipments enforces the relevance of a cultural function to this site.

Prizes:

A total fund of 5000€ in prize money will be awarded to winning entries and awards of merit. To all the awarded proposals, online promotion will be made through specialized websites and blogs.

First Prize: 3500€

Second Prize: 1000€
