The student-driven architecture competition 120 HOURS returns in 2023. 120 HOURS aims to give students a voice in the current architectural discourse. It is challenging and fun to participate in, and gives students a relevant first encounter with architectural competitions.
Students are given 120 hours to solve a complex and socially relevant assignment. By addressing topical discussions in both public and architecture debate, the competition aims to be a contributor of new thoughts and discussions within both social and cultural discourse.
The 120 HOURS competition will follow the theme of the conference; Sustainable Futures – Leave No One Behind. The theme seeks to critically explore what sustainability means both within the industry and education. Submissions should offer a wealth of suggestions and thoughts around current practices and narratives.
The competition assignment will be published on March 27, and the submission deadline is exactly 120 hours later, Friday 1 April. The jury reviews will take place in Oslo the 13th and 14th of April.
The competition is open for students from all over the world, but to participate, you must be affiliated with a university or a school as a student. You can either enter as a single person, or in teams of up to three persons.
