SITE MEMORIAL

international architecture ideas competition

 

NEW COMPETITION - SCROLL DOWN

 

 
 
 

COMPETITION

 

The Site Memorial, located in Lisbon, is a new landmark and a destination point inviting visitors for a unique and singular experience between the land and the water; it is a contemplative walk through history that leads to a place of gathering and a look-out point where the Tagus River becomes a powerful scenery. There are no limitations in height, depth or extension beyond the river bank.

 
 
 

BRIEF

 

This international one-stage architecture ideas competition invites all architecture students, young architects and young professionals with a degree in architecture studies (≤ 40 years old) to develop and submit compelling ideas for the design of a Site Memorial located along the Tagus River, Lisbon, Portugal.

Lisbon has a number of significant landmarks and it is a place of great cultural heritage and historical significance. Monuments, memory and history rise from the ground and together with the Tagus River are notable features within this setting.

When generating a vision for an intervention located within such a remarkable place, it is essential that each design proposal emphasises, respects and celebrates the site, while providing visitors with a unique experience.
