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 Sanctuary located on the powerful natural scenery of Monsanto, Portugal.

Monsanto has a number of significant landmarks within a prominent landscape.  For its authenticity, atmosphere and significance, Monsanto has been named the 'most Portuguese village of Portugal'.

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