International Architectural Competition

In an effort to address the urgent need to shelter the people who suffered the loss of their houses during the devastating fires of last summer in the Peloponnese, the Technical Chamber of Greece in collaboration with the Greek branch of the International Union of Architects Work Programme on architecture and renewable energy sources (ARES) have launched an international architectural competition. The open invitation to scientists worldwide aims at gathering ideas on bioclimatic shelter typologies that use renewable energy sources.  The competition will culminate in the official awards ceremony held by the 23rd UIA World Architects’ Congress in Torino, Italy, from June 29 to July 3, 2008.
