Concordia University’s CoLLaboratoire just launched a student architecture competition for the design of a solar-powered shelter. Open to students or recent graduates of all disciplines related to architecture, the contest seeks to raise awareness of and engagement in issues around climate change at a local level. The solar-powered shelter should be designed for use at Concordia University’s Loyola Campus and help educate and encourage public conversation around climate change. Designs with multiple shelters are also acceptable. A cash prize pool totaling over $3,000 CAD will be distributed among the top three winners and a winner determined by popular vote. The winning team will have the opportunity to build their shelter with a maximum allowable budget of $23,000 CAD. The submission deadline is June 15, 2016.
