This open ideas competition invites practicing architects, architecture
students and designers to design an
Academic Interchange for the University of Bremen, Germany. The Academic
Interchange is envisioned as an incubator for interdisciplinary
collaborations and international relations for academics at the university.
Entrants are encouraged to pay particular attention to the immersive experience of a visitor or visiting resident of the Academic Interchange with respect to their experience/understanding of the building and movement/flow through it. The design concept should originate from the perspective of the building user and be designed from the bottom up.
Main awards include stipends for participation in a symposium held in New York City, November 2011, Spatial Cognition for Architectural Design
