Trimo Urban Crash 2011 International Competition

The third international competition, Trimo Urban Crash 2011 is created for students of architecture and design works to encourage aspiring designers of urban space toward a bolder, more ambitious approach to and understanding of architecture; and to unite them in the ongoing search for the creative expression and transformation of the urban environment using cutting-edge materials and structural solutions.

The Trimo Urban Crash international competition ventures beyond the realm of theory by revealing the innovativeness, flexibility and effectiveness of Trimo products and solutions, by making a permanent execution of the best project in practice.

Objective

The current creative task challenges the participants to design “The Life Stand” – a public architectural installation for Nove Fužine, a specific residential neighborhood in Ljubljana using Trimo materials.

This installation should revive this neighborhood and at the same time offer an answer to complex architectural and social questions common to many European urban residential areas.

Prizes

The winning project will be chosen through a two round evaluation by an international jury, followed by the final vote, when the public will be present; until the end of April 2011, and built in the Fužine district until autumn 2011.

At the official opening of the building finalists will meet members of the jury and be able to participate in architectural workshops in Ljubljana.
