Canyon View Accommodation (CaVA) Arizona Architecture Competition

International Architecture Competition – Canyon View Accommodation (CaVA) Arizona

The Grand Canyon is a splendid and steep gorge carved by the Colorado River in northern Arizona, United States, near the border of Utah and Nevada. It is located mostly within the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States.

The Colorado River channel carries water from seven states, undermining the ground for millions of years. It is about 450 km long, with ranges of between 6 and 29 km wide and reaches depths of over 1,600 m.

Due to its importance to ecology, biology, culture and the beauty of its landscape, it was declared a National Park in 1919 and a World Heritage Site in 1979 by the UNESCO.

Canyon View Accommodation Arizona Architecture Competition

The Grand Canyon has three main areas. The South Rim is the most developed of these three areas. It is the one that largest range of accommodation offers, both inside and outside the National Park. On the other hand, in the North Rim are two major areas of accommodation, the lodges which are within the park, and the area outside the park with a few hotels. However, in the West Rim, recently popular by the Grand Canyon Skywalk and offers alternative views of the Grand Canyon from Hualapai Indian Reservation just outside the National Park, accommodation is scarce.

The Grand Canyon National Park, besides that offers the possibility of accommodation, offers also many more enjoyable activities and experiences. These activities include mule or horseback rides to the Colorado River, hiking trails, practices rafting or kayaking down the river and the chance to fly over the Grand Canyon by helicopter.

Object:
The aim of this competition for architecture students and young architects, Canyon View Accommodation (CaVA) Arizona, is to propose a temporary accommodation space for visitors in such unique and delicate spaces as the Grand Canyon.

Thanks to its privileged location, the proposed spaces aims to become an international benchmark in the world of tourist accommodation, not only for its location but for the characteristics of its morphology in relation to its site and the unique experience offered to visitors.

The proposal aspires to become a “must-stop” point for visitors of the Grand Canyon. An accommodation space that offers visitors a unique experience in the middle of this singular and globally known landscape.
