COOK8 – International Design Competition

Domés International Review of Architecture, launches the International Design Competition COOK8 to discover the New Dining Place.

The aim of the competition is the formulation of new ideas on the design of a meeting-place for people on the occasion of the preparation and consumption of food as means of socialization.

COOK8 is a competition about an interior dining space for 8 people, where the three awarded entries will be built in real scale (1:1), at the Benaki Art Museum, Athens, Greece. These three entries will also be awarded with 2,000 Euro, each.

The interior dining space for 8 people, should be of an area of 24 – 30 m2 and must include:

  • a preparation area (conservation, readying, preparation, cleaning, storage of foodstuffs and utensils)
  • a consumption area
  • a hygiene area (WC and washbasin, together or separate).

The organizer is looking for the creative re-interpretation and overtaking of the usual approaches which are a function of the conventional building and management arrangements of catering premises (private or communal dining-room, club, commercial restaurant, café, cafeteria, snack-bar, fast food outlet, taverna, canteen, etc.).

All submitted entries will become part of the COOK8 exhibition and included together with the three wining entries, will be exhibited at the Benaki Art Museum in Athens, from 13th June to 31 July, 2018. A publication with the selection of the entries in the light of the Jury’s evaluation, and evaluation notes on the competition by the members of the Jury, will also be released.
