The arquideas CoB Madrid Competition for students of architecturehas has been held from October 2011 to March 2012. We have already covered the Jurys decision in our blog.

Over 90 teams representing universities and schools of architecture around the world took part in this contest, providing new with ideas about how architecture should respond to new needs generated by new ways of working and interacting at the work centers of the 21st century.

Taking into consideration the assessment criteria such as the architectural quality of the proposals, their ability to clearly express their basic ideas, their interest in sustainability and bioclimatic solution, urban  integration and response to the program, the Jury selected six  proposals that, as a whole, represent the values expected in the contest. They offer six different solutions to the same problem, but mantein similar criteria regarding flexibility in work areas, and suggest a controlled evolution that even goes beyond of the building plot to colonize urban spaces. They give special relevance to new energy systems, all of which offers non-conventional solutions that make the contest result get close to the new workspace idea proposed in the competition.

1st Prize: Sara Ouass Chemlal. Escuela de Arquitectura, Universidad Europea de Madrid. Spain

The project responds correctly to the use for which it is intended, in which flexibility and chance serve as generators of a new understanding of workspaces. The successful arrangement of the pillars permits the workspace to be organized in different ways, suggesting a psychological division of space and a wide variety of routes that allow for the creation of several meeting points.

The jury particularly appreciated a construction system consisting of functional pillars, not merely structural, which are an adequate response to questions of sustainability and energy efficiency.

2 nd  Prize: Ana Martín Hernández, Leticia Paredes Martín. Escuela de Arquitectura, Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Madrid. Spain.

The jury highlighted an innovative urban settlement, which proposed a new system of work that goes beyond a mere building project and enables existing spaces to be revitalized. It valued the proposal for an experimental system of renewable energy generation, which is linked to new workspaces and is firmly committed to energy efficiency in future cities.

3 rd  Prize (ex aequo): Alessandro Angelelli, Simone D’Eredità, Francesco Lato. Facoltà di Architettura, Sapienza L. Quaroni, Università di Roma. Italy

The urban integration of the building and its suitable architectural image are aspects that did not go unnoticed by the jury. Jury members highlight the spatial quality of the proposal generated by unoccupied spaces that enrich the work areas through a host of visual relationships and recreational areas.

3 rd  Prize (ex aequo): Marta Nino, Marcos García Baños. Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid. Spain

The jury valued the creation of the project, because of its relation to public space and its ability to shape its morphology using a prefabricated modular system that meets the needs of each company. The system enables spaces to be used in an interesting and versatile way and their growth to be controlled.It highlighted the ability to provide companies with advertising space which overlooks the city and generates a characteristic image of the building.

Mention: Camerlo Fanny, Thomas Van Gaver and Julien Hubert. École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Marseille. France

The jury found it interesting to create a versatile and combined module which could be used for different activities related to co-working spaces and their ability to adapt to future needs.

Mention: Ignacio García Martínez, Roberto Ortiz de Landázuri and Jaime Diz Sanz. Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid. Spain

The jury appreciated the cleanliness and definition of each of the proposed work areas and its urban setting. It highlights the use of the facade, not only as an image of the building, but also as an energy harvesting system.
