This year's workshop initiative is to design a simple structure representing Abidjan family house. The task is to think about and propose an idea of a dwelling on flat area of 10 x 10m. The idea will have to be empowered by a brief study of local building standards, technology, material available and culture.

 

Students from Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, Serbia and United Kingdom will tomorrow present their solutions in front of the jury.

Jury members interview #1: Michael Stacey and Wojtek Nowak

MICHAEL STACEY

TUC: What are the advantages of Trimo Urban Crash competition?

M: The great advantage of the Trimo Urban Crash competition is that it is a student competition that is built. There is no other way of learning about tectonics and the assembly of architecture than making and constructing projects.
The other great strength of the competition is that it is truly International. I thought the moment when the countries of origin of the winners and commended projects was fantastic.

TUC: What benefits do you see that competition brings to the winner? (and to the public?)

M: As stated assembling architecture is essential to the education of architects and this has been neglected by too many schools of architecture for imagery and the virtual.
Winning a competition such as Trimo

Ten Thousand Miles

We've come a long way but we’re only halfway there!

Here’s our story – in a nutshell.

We initially met two years ago in Göteborg, Sweden. Both of us were exchange students – from Australia (Manus) and Poland (Kacper). The idea of teaming up for the first time was conceived during the mandatory student competition course for an interchange hub held at Chalmers University of Technology. The collaboration was a success and we were fortunate to be announced winners of the Wernstedt Sketch 2011.


Korsvägen Interchange Hub (2011) – scale model

When the semester ended we shook our hands and set sails for Sydney and Warsaw – keeping in touch despite the distance.

It was Manus – optimistic and enthusiastic enough – who suggested participating in this year’s Trimo Urban Crash Competition.

Trimo Urban Crash 2013 committe report

 
ABOUT THE COMPETITION
 
Trimo Urban Crash is an international competition for students of architecture and design. The aim is to encourage aspiring designers of urban space towards a bolder, more ambitious approach towards understanding architecture and its place in the larger urban environment. The competition ventures beyond the realm of applied theory by exploring and revealing the innovativeness, flexibility and effectiveness of Trimo products and solutions – and their distinct advantages in contemporary design and building.
All of the works are published in an online gallery. Trimo Urban Crash offers no monetary rewards, as we see greater purpose in the acquiring of knowledge, valuable experience and finally, recognition.
 
The theme of the architectural building 2013 is a
