2010 Wall Competition – National Taipei University of Technology Architecture

Following the success of 2008 Bridge Design Competition, National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT) School of Architecture would like to further the event, by offering a second design competition to foster idea dialogues among students. Building upon past experiences, NTUT hopes to enhance the platform on which global exchanges can take place. Given architecture’s recent involvement with sustainability and global warming, this competition calls for creative responses to these environmental concerns.

This competition takes on an elemental perspective to architectural design and sustainability.
