#007 RETHINKING Competitions: Carrara Thermal Baths

This is why “Carrara Thermal Baths” is a great opportunity for the rehabilitation of unconnected spaces or apparently destroyed that we have in our planet.

This time, in addition to 4500€ in prizes,we will also give a grant for the Master in Advanced Architecture (MArch) in Valencia with architects like Álvaro Siza, Souto de Moura, Juan Domingo Santos and Fran Silvestre.

The contest, called Carrara Thermal Baths, looks for two concept: RE-NATURALIZE and RE-STORE. Let’s think for a moment. How can our actions contribute to nature? That’s what the contestant must investigate and propose.

Our current lifestyles are accelerated, instantaneous, simultaneous and marked by devices such as the clock and mobile phone. These ways of life have generated a stressed, dual and individualistic society. Could someone, from the project, stimulate other ways of life more leisurely, relaxed, related to nature? An escaping area where experimenting with new connections with nature. To project is to enjoy.

A total prize of 4.500 € will be distributed as follows:

First prize: 3.000 € + 2000€ grant for Master’s degree MArch Valencia
Second prize: 1.000 €
Third prize: 500 €
