Ibiza Artist House Architecture Competition
For the 3rd time, MArch Valencia has relied on reTHINKING competitions to organize a competition where, in addition to the prizes, a scholarship is awarded for one of its Architecture programs.
This new architecture contest is # 016 Ibiza Artist House.
Site – Pirate Tower
The pirate tower, in Ibiza, is one of the most famous defensive constructions on the island, which every year attracts hundreds of tourists who want to visit the well-known defense tower. Its true name is the Torre de Es Savinar or Cap d’es Jueu, and it is the highest tower in Ibiza, although its main attraction is that from the top of the tower you can enjoy a unique view of the islet of Es Vedrà and It is Vedranell, and you can even see the massif of Montgó de Denia on the clearest days.
Being a defensive construction, the area has cliffs, areas with a softer slope and last areas in direct contact with the sea in its lower part, exactly the lower bay. That is why the place of intervention to develop the proposal will be totally free where the contestant must choose how to settle their architecture and get the most out of the place by choosing what kind of strategy to follow.
It is the fact that this place is one of the most inspiring that we can find on the island, the reason why it has been decided that it is an ideal point to develop a home conceived as a space of relaxation, of inner peace where culture, passion, art can flow thanks to the architecture that is proposed. Being a point of visual, musical or physical creation for an artist (architect, musician, poet, painter, ..).
The proposal can be conceived as an occasional refuge-house or as a permanent home for its inhabitant. That is why the contestant will decide on the one hand the profession of his tenant, then decide the exact location of the house and finally the program, taking into account that they must develop at least the following spaces: 1 room – studio – living room – dining room, 1 viewpoint, 1 bathroom

Rethinking Competition in 2018
PIAM Architecture Competition
After the success of participation in previous editions, Matimex announces another year of PIAM, the International Architecture Prize dedicated on this occasion to the Contemporary Commercial Spaces.
Architecture has always been linked to trade: from the first ephemeral stores that were settling in squares forming souks to the current large commercial spaces. Our society, always in continuous evolution, is increasingly demanding. It is not only about acquiring the product, but also about living an entire shopping experience. That´s why we are looking for a global design that goes beyond the product and that understands it as a whole with the brand, the space and the sensations experienced.
This change of focus entails an evolution of the commercial space linked to these new needs of the consumer. New commercial spaces for new user needs.
We propose to design a space or recover an existing one, whose design revolves around the main theme of the contest: “ComerciARQ. Contemporary Commercial Spaces “.
The company, from Iris Ceramica Group, wants to show its support to environment with the contest. The use of products with finished ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic will be consideredan advantage.
