UIA 2014 International Student Competition – South Africa
WARWICK JUNCTION INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FOR ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS
‘Warwick Junction’, a unique location within central Durban, is the site for the international competition open to architecture students worldwide, launched as part of the next UIA congress in South Africa (3-7 August 2014). This transport node is a place for exchange and informal commerce with unique qualities at an unprecedented scale.
Based on the congress theme ‘Architecture Otherwhere’, the aim of the competition is to highlight the complex ecology of Warwick Junction and its economic, social and cultural dynamic by proposing solutions that will be to the benefit and well being of the community and the half a million people who frequent this area every day. Projects must propose three visions simultaneously: a long term – large scale solution; medium term – medium scale solution; an immediate small scale intervention.
