7th CAA Students Design Competition

on Thursday 12 October 2006 - 01:07:44 | by admin
Students from all over the globe (even outside the commonwealth countries) are invited to participate in the 7th CAA Students Design Competition. (Closing date for entries 10 November 2006) The participants have to design:

A Small Sustainable Sports Centre which will serve as a focus for a poor community. Entrants can choose a site from within their own region, but this is not mandatory. It can be located in a rural or an urban context. It can be a sports pavilion or an urban sports facility featuring regeneration. The architectural response to the site will be amongst the criteria for judging the competition. The centre should aim at attracting people to participate in sport and physical activity, particularly young people. As such, it should have social facilities and its design should attract members of the community to participate in the building. The competition jury is not looking for a large centre, but one that will serve a wide spectrum of a small population. It can achieve a social purpose in attracting people who are unemployed or from problem areas of society to participate in sport. It can also perform a valuable role in persuading people to pursue a healthy agenda. Many people neglect exercise and a healthy life-style. Entrants may choose a theme for the building: • It can be inspired by, or named after a famous sports person from the past or the present. A sporting hero or heroine may give appeal to the facility; if this course is followed, there should be link to the design and the jury will look for brief evidence and background. • It can also be inspired by a certain sport or group in society, but the jury will be looking for a broad community appeal. -Download the Rules and Procedures -Download the Registration form CAA Website:
