ArchiHackers Competition

Archistart promoted ArchiHackers Competition, a contest to reward young designers creativity and talent.
Do you have a favourite architecture? Do you remember how many architectural design references you met during your academic studies?
ArchiHackers is an invitation to hack an architecture, transforming, multiplying or simplifying it.

ArchiHackers Competition is an annual event, a competition inspired by the major transformation projects that are taking place in contemporary urban contexts.
The reconsideration of a façade, an expansion on the existing, a new cover, the extension of a modern architecture, the revisiting of an interior. The possibility of giving a new image and enhancing your dream project.
To take part in the contest, you have to choose a reference architecture (modern or contemporary architecture interventions) and to imagine freely, without any fixed constraint, a transformation.
