JURY EVALUATION: December 02 - December 16, 2017

WINNERS ANNOUNCED: January 12, 2018


Site Theatre _ Baleal, Peniche, Portugal

an international architecture competition (July 20, 2017 - November 11, 2017)



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 Theatre located on a site promontory near the Fortress of Baleal, in Baleal, Peniche, Portugal.

The Baleal Fortress is a significant landmark located within a remarkable place; a powerful natural scenery where the remains of the Fortress rises from the landscape and together with the cliff surfaces eroded by the wind are notable features within this setting.

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.
