ARQUITECTUM, a company which organizes Architecture Competitions, is pleased to welcome all the world’s architects to the International Architecture Competition “MAQUINARIAS”, to be held from June until September 2011. This document includes the information required for registration, as well as the procedures necessary for participation in the competition, which will conclude with an exhibition of all the projects presented on the ARQUITECTUM website (www.arquitectum.com). As the main competition consultant, it is my pleasure to ask you to send any queries or questions regarding the competition via e-mail to email@example.com, or regarding the registration or payment procedures to firstname.lastname@example.org. On behalf of ARQUITECTUM “we welcome all the participating architects and wish you the very best of luck.”
Milagros Bedoya (Architect)
The initiative for an international architecture competition proposed by MAQUINARIAS, the exclusive distributor of Nissan products in Peru, is based on the need to enlarge its Service Center while ensuring the quality and optimum functionality of that facility, in order to offer the best service to its clients.
The architecture of this new building must represent contemporary tendencies, distinguishing itself through the singularity of its architectural design, while at the same time integrating with the remaining structures of the dealership.
AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE CENTER
The proposed Service Center must be prototypical of one of the most prestigious companies in the Peruvian automotive industry, as the representative of renowned brands like Nissan and Renault. This project must be a model of productivity, efficiency, function and design, replacing the traditional system of working with a high level and personalized service. To this end, the edifice must not merely comply with Peruvian safety regulations, but also subscribe to international standards of quality, safety and technology.
DESCRIPTION OF THE LOCATION
The lot is located on Javier Prado Av., one of the most important and heavily-used roads in the city, within the district of La Molina, in the city of Lima (the capital of Peru).
ARQUITECTUM considers contests to be an excellent means for architectural experimentation, discussion and speculation. To this avail, our client MAQUINARIAS (www.maquinarias.com) has expressed its willingness to experiment, given its interest in motivating architects to surprise them with their creativity and with a better idea than they initially expected, this is the main reason why this competition is being held. They are aware that this “surprise factor” is very important and that it may involve the undermining of some of the contest’s rules. MAQUINARIAS invites each architect to explore as far as he/she can, even if that should entail the overlooking or breaking of rules, making it clear, as well, that the risk also involves the possibility of being disqualified.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Architects from all over the world who have satisfactorily concluded their studies and count with a degree to certify them as such, as well as any team or office of professionals with at least one architect of said characteristics (in the instance that the person wishing to participate had a university degree –an MS in Architecture, for example— and worked in an office as a professional designer but was not a registered architect).
– If the winning architect is not Peruvian, ARQUITECTUM will be in charge of associating him to a peruvian architect, so that he/she may develop the project in its integrity.
– Participation and registration in the Competition will immediately imply compliance and obedience to all the conditions set forth by these Rules.
Prizes will be as follows:
1st PRIZE: US $ 15,000 (FIFTEEN THOUSAND AMERICAN DOLLARS) TAX FREE
2nd FINALIST: US $ 10,000 (TEN THOUSAND AMERICAN DOLLARS) TAX FREE
3rd FINALIST: US $ 5,000 (FIVE THOUSAND AMERICAN DOLLARS) TAX FREE
NINE HONORABLE MENTIONS
The winner of the competition will be offered the development of the project, in case he or she accepts, he or she will receive as professional fee the amount of US $ 60,000 (SIXTY THOUSAND AMERICAN DOLLARS). This only after MAQUINARIAS and the winner come to an arrangement on the development of the project.
