Unexpected City International Competition

Student Competition

The School of Architecture of Tianjin University and the Chinese press group, Urban Environmental Design (UED), are launching the third edition of the UIA-HYP Cup 2014 International Student Competition in Architectural Design.

The theme of the competition held annually is always ‘Architecture in Transformation’, but the specific focus changes every year. The subject for the 2014 edition is ‘Unexpected City’, a topic chosen by jury chairman Daniel Libeskind.

Participants will choose a site of around 4,000 m2 for their projects and can define its characteristics. 12 prizes will be awarded: one First Prize of around $10,000; three Second Prizes of around $5,000; and eight Third Prizes of around $1,700. Twenty Honourable Mentions will also be attributed.
