Tristan da Cunha is the world’s most remote inhabited island—so remote, that it’s only accessible by sea on approximately 60 days of the year. While life on the volcanic island is simple for its population of 270 people, the government wants to make the community more self-sufficient through sustainable and energy efficient design. Thus, the government of Tristan da Cunha teamed up with RIBA Competitions to launch an open ideas competition seeking a more sustainable future for the island’s community, buildings, and agricultural systems. The competition will be conducted in two phases and the five shortlisted teams will be granted £3,000. The winning team will receive an additional £2,000. The deadline for Stage 1 submissions is June 2, 2015.

Five shortlisted teams will be granted £3,000. The winning team will receive an additional £2,000.


The competition is open to design teams from around the globe who must be led by a fully qualified architect. Architects practising in the UK should be registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB), with overseas-based applicants registered to practice with an equivalent regulatory authority. See website for more details.


The winner will be chosen by a judging panel, which includes the Island’s Administrator and Head of Government HH Alex Mitham, as well as John Whiles of Jestico & Whiles as the RIBA Architect Adviser.
