Saint-Gobain Architecture Student Contest 2022, Warsaw
About the Contest
We believe buildings can and should deliver both improved performance and sustainability. We care about maximizing health and wellbeing for everyone, everywhere – while minimizing impact on the environment over a building’s lifespan.
Universities are preparing future generations, and students are already building the future. Together we can build it better.
The objective of the Architecture Student Contest is to develop a project based on sustainability, both for people and the planet. The buildings will be highly energy-efficient, low-carbon, and provide a comfortable environment for their occupants, in order to create better living, working and leisure spaces everywhere.
The task of the 17th edition of the international student competition organised by Saint-Gobain Group in close cooperation with the City of Warsaw is to develop a vision for the revitalization of the area located next to the Warsaw East (Warszawa Wschodnia) railway station.
Participants in the competition should create a vision for the development of the area, taking into account both the characteristics of the location, Warsaw‘s plans for achieving the 2050 climate goals, and the expectations of young people wishing to settle and develop in the capital city. The project involves the renovation of an old factory building, which will be used to integrate the local community, as well as the construction of new residential buildings, some of which will be used as private dormitory/apartments for rent by students. The project must be innovative and sustainable and comply with the technical guidelines prepared by Saint-Gobain.
The proposed solution should be:
- Consistent with the vision of a climate-neutral Warsaw 2050 and the vision of the #Warsaw2030 strategy,
- Compatible with the area‘s surroundings,
- Economically feasible,
- Characterized by solutions to ensure that the site becomes highly attractive to young people and the local community.
