EFAP ‘Converging Territories’ Mobility Project
Published: Friday, March 26, 2010
Call for participation in a pilot project for architects' mobility in Europe.
In the framework of a residence, individuals or teams are invited to develop a proposal linked to a specific territorial or spatial situation, located in one of the three cities involved: Dublin, Paris and Prague.
This project is neither a competition nor a commission, but rather free space and time, a living laboratory dedicated to reflection and exchange in a foreign environment.
The project has two objectives:
• To add the applicant’s contribution and experience to a specific project in order to enrich it and bring external analysis
• To critically reflect on the working process and the way to ensure the continued existence of these residences.
The applicants’ proposals and processes will be presented during events such as the Venice Biennale or through diffusion networks dedicated to architecture.
Maximum duration of the “residence”: 6 months
Financing: each residence is provided with an all-inclusive grant of 9 000 € for designing work (50% paid beforehand, 50% after work completion) + travel, accommodation and supply costs.
Selection is open to architects who have designed at least one project, whether realised or in progress, as well as to those who have won a competition, completed a study, publication or organized workshops. Selection is open to EU citizens graduated from entitled institutions in their countries. Applicants can be represented by an individual or a team. Applications from mixed teams are allowed.
3 participants/teams will be selected in 2010, and 3 others in 2011.
To take part in 2010, all applicants should complete and return the electronic application form BEFORE April 15, 2010.
