JURY EVALUATION: April 13 - April 27, 2018



Site Cultural Center _ Moura, Beja, Portugal

an international architecture competition (December 08, 2017 - March 31, 2018)



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 Cultural Center located near the remarkable remains of the medieval watchtower Atalaia Magra near Moura, Beja, Portugal.

The Atalaia Magra remains are a landmark of great cultural heritage and historical significance with characteristics that must be fully preserved.

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