Trimo Urban Crash returns for the fourth time this year, challenging students to design a unique modular space solution made from Trimo products and the products of their partners.
The Trimo Urban Crash 2013 Competition deals with the reinvention of modular space unit composition. The task is to design a creative urban meeting point – the Bike Base.
The winning project will be realised in cooperation with its author at a designated location in the centre of Ljubljana, and in the process serve a very real everyday purpose.
4th Biennial International Trimo Urban Crash Competition is now open!
Trimo Urban Crash is an international competition for students of architecture and design. The aim is to encourage aspiring designers of urban space towards a bolder, more ambitious approach towards understanding architecture and its place in the larger urban environment. The competition ventures beyond the realm of applied theory by revealing the innovativeness, flexibility and effectiveness of Trimo products and solutions – and their distinct advantages in contemporary design and building.
The main competition is organized every two years, with first prize being the realization of the winning project in Ljubljana and an all-expense paid summer school term for the winner. The shortlisted authors are invited to a workshop in Slovenia and their works are published in the event catalogue. And all of the works are published in an online gallery.
Trimo Urban Crash offers no monetary rewards, as we see greater purpose in the accumulation of knowledge, valuable experience and finally, recognition.
