This competition follows the successful electronic competition of unbuilt
work celebrated at the Bienal Miami + Beach 2001.
The goal of this competition is to promote and reveal the potency of 'new
conceptual and experimental work' in architecture today. The objective is
to award extraordinary unbuilt projects and architectural ideas. Design
works that provoke new cultural visions, new professional practices, and
new understandings of urbanity of the contemporary world.
The competition is open to all architects, designers and students of
architecture regardless of citizenship. The only requirement is that the
project has not been constructed by the deadline of the competition.
The organizing committee of the Bienal + Miami 2003 calls for this contest
to be an open competition about the possible futures of architecture. The
word 'architecture' or 'architectural' in this competition it is an open
word. The committee's belief is that we live in an age in which we are
forced to redefine our traditional notion of design and architecture. The
committee's conviction is that a major part of the future of architecture
lies in a discourse that can be found mostly in 'un-built and experimental'
work from around the world. The objective of the competition is to reveal
this discourse. In order to review and promote these projects worldwide all
work must be submitted via the Internet.
This prize is designed to award single projects. The jury will evaluate
each project individually. There is no limit on the number of projects that
can be entered but each project has to be registered individually.
The competition is organized as part of the Bienal Miami + Beach 2003 which
is sponsored by The School of Architecture at Florida International
University, AIA Miami Chapter, Miami, and the Federacion Panamericana de
