Date: 7/15/2021 - 9/30/2021

Type: Competitions / Awards

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): International


Public Space Design Competition, “Recreate Concrete Outdoor Picnic Furniture," is the second international open competition of ideas to reveal talents and fresh ideas that can benefit to the community sponsored by leading precast concrete company URBASTYLE.

It is open to students and young professionals up to 30 yrs old. Competition is anonymous (not based on reputation but talent) and there is no fee to enter. Candidates in the field of architecture, design, landscape, urban planning, engineering, are invited to challenge themselves, discover precast architectural concrete, and design precast concrete elements in relation with theme of picnic and specifically the trio: table-bench-trashcan.

Candidates are invited to think openly on what could be the picnics of tomorrow, alone or in couple, in family, with pets, wild animals, what will be the food, drinks on the table, ... and integrating people with temporarily or permanent physical or cognitive disabilities of course. Picnics can be entertaining, relaxing or inviting us to eat and go and maybe keep the place tidy. Tomorrow may not be the same as today!

Ideas of candidates must be made of precast architectural concrete. Accent is also made on accessibility, “design for all” and eco-design.

Candidates are invited to present their ideas in sketches, precisely one idea on maximum 2x A3 paper sheets to submit in PDF.

A prototype will be produced among the three first prizes by the sponsor and will be exhibited.
