Lunawood Urban Challenge

Submission: May 2nd - June 24th, 2019
Registration: free
Language: English
Location: Conceptual
Prizes: € 8.000 + Certificate of Achievement
Type: International Open Ideas Competition
Lunawood Urban Challenge invites all architecture students, architects and creative professionals to develop and submit compelling ideas to transform our urban cities. We need your help in creating a more natural – yet modern environment using Lunawood Thermowood.
Urbanization all over the world has seen a staggering growth. Carbon emissions in the building sector account for almost 25% of the total carbon emissions produced by economic activities around the world. With a growing population and urbanization, it is increasingly vital to consider diminishing the harmful carbon emissions in building materials used in the building sector.
A liable-sourced and natural building material like wood is the answer to building with renewable and wholesome material. Wood from renewable Nordic forests grows naturally and cuts out CO2 from the air.
Architects and designers will be given the opportunity to significantly lower the carbon footprint of buildings and increase healthful living experiences with improved air quality by innovating with a sustainable and renewable wood material called Lunawood Thermowood.
The Challenge
Lunawood Urban Challenge calls for participants to re-imagine and re-design urban environments by using Lunawood Thermowood. The participant chooses an existing non-renewable urban space, which the participant re-designs by embracing the possibilities of Lunawood Thermowood.
In the Lunawood Urban Challenge, the participant can utilize Lunawood’s digital design tools for Revit and ArchiCad. The entrant can freely choose, which Lunawood BIM-objects to explore and use.
Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (3 team members maximum).

Workshop at Mount Luzzone

Workshop at Mount Luzzone 6th and 7th July 2019 open to all architecture students from EPFL, USI and ETH

Recomposition of 6 ruins on Mount Luzzone at 2150 meters above sea level in the Valley of Malvaglia, Ticino with Martino Pedrozzi

“To recompose is to recover the stones of the ruin back to within the original perimeter of the building. Physically the recomposition manifests itself as a volumetric redefinition of the ruin and restoration of the space that surrounds it. A work in the landscape for the benefit of its users. However, the contribution is also immaterial and is an act of good will towards the civilization that preceded us.”

Presentation of workshop:

Lausanne: EPFL | Friday 5th April | Foyer SG | time 13.15
Mendrisio: AAM | Monday 15th April | Lecture hall CO.64 | time 12.30
Zurich: ETH | Tuesday 16th April | HIL E67 Rote Hölle | time 12.15
