International Concrete Design Competition 2015/2016

Published: Tuesday, September 29, 2015

The International Concrete Design Competition is a biennial competition for students of architecture and design related disciplines. It is organized and funded by a consortium of European cement and concrete associations and is open to students registered in a 3rd level educational institute in one of the participating countries. The competition is now entering its 7th cycle and the countries currently participating include Germany, Turkey, Belgium and Ireland. The competition is funded in Ireland by Cement Manufacturers Ireland, the business association in Ibec representing Ireland’s cement manufacturing industry.

The Concrete Design Competition aims to promote innovative design attitudes related to the use of concrete as a material and a technology. Each competition cycle is framed by a theme exploring a specific property of concrete.  A jury in each country will choose national winners and they will be invited to participate in an international Master Class in September 2016 in Berlin. This Master Class will continue the investigation of the theme and provides a great opportunity for students to engage with international experts and gain practical experience of working and designing in concrete.

Cycle 7 of the competition formally launches at the start of the academic year in September 2015 and the closing date for national entries is May 2016. The theme for 2015/2016 is “METAMORPHOSIS”.
