Nka Foundation announces a call for entries for its 6th Earth Architecture Competition: Designing a Classroom of the Future, an international design competition open to practitioners and advanced students of architecture, design and engineering from around the world who think that earth architecture can be designed to stand the test of time. This is the design problem: What should a classroom designed and built in rural Africa look like to stand the test of time? The shortlisted entries will be built as units of the Abetenim High School for students of ages 12 to 18 years in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. Besides travel prize for the three winning designs, the competition offers construction opportunity for all shortlisted designs. Total costs of constructing the design entry must not exceed $13,000 (USD) for materials and local labor. The entry fee is $40 for individual entry and $60 for team entry. In order to enter the competition, you must register at goo.gl/qSFY7r before October 30, 2018 and submit your design entry at nkaprojects.boards.net on November 2, 2018.
