Oxford Innovation District Competition

CUBE Competition 2021

CUBE is a new competition in the UK led by partners Ampersand and A4MT and its aim is to drive energy use reduction in commercial buildings through gamification and human behaviour. They believe that achieving net zero carbon in our buildings is not just about the buildings, but about the way we use them, and while there will inevitably be a need for money to be spent on becoming more sustainable there are simpler first steps to net zero – namely through changing behaviour.

• CUBE has been running in France for six years and delivers energy and equivalent annual cost savings of between 12% and 55% for the likes of BNP Paribas and Orange – through simple interventions and without significant investment
• Where investments have been made, there is a return and payback has been relatively quick (within the 12 month competition timeframe)
• Ampersand believes we need to look at net zero carbon as a responsibility but also as an investment that will pay back, and make buildings healthier in the process
• We also need to change the nature of the landlord and tenant relationship so it’s not about ‘imposing’ green leases but embracing them in the spirit of working together for mutual benefit
• And to create a community of occupiers, landlords and building managers where best practice and ideas are shared – which is exactly what CUBE is set up to do
• We mustn’t scare the industry when it comes to net zero, we need to offer solutions – if we all take small steps together, we can make a huge difference

The Howard de Walden Estate has become the first organisation to sign up to CUBE, an innovative competition, recently launched in the UK, that helps landlords, building managers and occupiers reduce the energy usage in their commercial buildings through encouraging behavioural change.

The Shelter Competition by arch out loud in 2021

Both literally and figuratively, humanity resides in the midst of two distinct trends. While we yearn to be closer to nature and experience her beauty, we are being increasingly brutalized by her harshest elements.

We watch as the changing climate brings natural calamity and damage to a larger group of people and a wider swath of geography. We watch the increasing frequency and strength of nature wreaking havoc among our communities.

arch8 Lock Unlock competition 2021

What is a prison? Prison is a place where inmates are confined and denied a variety of freedoms under the authority of the state as punishment for various crimes. But is this all to a prison? Can’t prison serve to be more than just a set up to punish the convicts?

Recidivism is not a very rare occurrence. It’s time to put out the question, why? Why do convicts go back to their old means as soon as they are released from the prison? Why are prisons failing to contribute to society?

Architecture contest from ARCH8

Global Warming is a term almost everyone is familiar with. It is one of the biggest issues we are dealing with. In the upcoming years, global warming can affect us in many treacherous ways.

The first and foremost effect is polar ice caps melting. As the temperature increases, the ice at the North Pole will melt. Once the ice melts, the first effect will be a rise in sea levels because the melting glaciers become oceans. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center “if the ice melted today the seas would rise about 230 feet”. It affects many low-lying areas such as the Netherlands.
