Submissions to the 8th Cosentino Design Challenge are open until June 1st, 2014. The competition is directed to all students enrolled for the 2013-2014 academic year at any school or centre of higher education for design, architecture or interior architecture anywhere in the world. In two categories, they are to develop ideas how to use the materials of the Spanish producer of natural and engineered stone.
In this edition, participants in the Design category are asked to focus on „Cosentino and art”. They are free to choose their own work area or surface, but have to give careful consideration to the relationship between art, space, the observer and Cosentino products.
In the Architecture category, the task consists of taking a historic or iconic building anywhere in the world, changing its primary use to another of the participant’s choice and affording special attention to its skin.
There are three first prizes of 1,000 € each for both categories. The decision of the jury, which is comprised of reputable names in the world of architecture and design, will be announced during the month of June 2014.
Proposals must be submitted until June 1st, 2014, and will only be accepted in digital format via the website of the competition.
