Music festivals are popular across the world, giving music fans a chance to meet and experience their favorite bands and artists live and in a crowd of fellow supporters. Sansusī is a festival dedicated to celebrating classical and contemporary chamber music within a modern festival setting. First established in 2014, the Sansusī festival has been held each year in Latvia, and sought to create the world’s first alternative chamber music festival.
The Sansusī Forest Food Court competition is being run in partnership with the festival, tasking architects and designers to create a food court structure that would function as the center of the festival. The structure would need to be able to be assembled by hand and should be constructed of sustainable materials.
As winning designs will be put forward for consideration for construction, the Sansusī festival founders are asking participants to offer solutions that will best serve the various needs of the festival. Designs should reflect the spirit of the festival while also being a prolific example of green building practices and sustainable design.
The Sansusī Forest Food Court competition aims to create accessible places and events where everyone can meet and fall in love with the contemporary scene. Sansusī was built on the concept of creating and engaging with the wider community, both on-site and online.
