🏆 First Place

Mohammad Amin Mostafavi Mousavi

To revive the ancient Canyon of Petra in Jordan and also to protect the main Historical monument of Petra against climatic changes and torrential rains, a steel, wood, and glass roofed structure with a parametric and sustainable architectural approach has been designed for the Canyon and valuable Historical Monuments inside it with respect to the protection of ancient monuments. The main approach of my design according to the request of the competition has been to connect the presented images with each other and adhere to the competition requests.

🥈 Second Place

Being European, I chose a Historical Monument site located in Rome – The Colosseum. On the old continent the architects challenges are often about combining old with new. That is present also here. Today the monument only serves tourists and most will visit the Colosseum only once in their lifetime. There is few green spaces in the area so introducing new functions is a great idea. To open the building to the local communities I introduced a variety of functions inside the colosseum, mostly recreational functions like parks and cafes. The structure located inside is smaller and invisible from the outside.  

🥉 Third Place

As someone deeply rooted in Lebanon, I’m compelled to envision a vibrant future for Baalbek Temple, a timeless symbol of our heritage. Each year, our land plays host to illustrious international festivals, drawing travelers from every corner of the globe. We, the Lebanese, transform this sacred space into a grand theater, adorned with humble plastic chairs and podiums, breathing life into the ancient stones. Notably, there’s abundant unused space, especially between the majestic ruins of Jupiter and Bacchus temples. Here, I propose a visionary intervention – a Roman Futuristic amphitheater, versatile in its design, offering both indoor sanctuaries for intimate gatherings and open-air stages for grand spectacles. respecting the site’s historical typology. My concept is the introduction of a majestic gold metallic structure, The choice of gold color symbolizes the sun and pays homage to the temple’s historical significance as a temple of the sun. This resplendent addition, embellished with new smart material of sustainable photovoltaic gold mirrors, not only pays homage to ancient worship practices but also harnesses the sun’s energy to power our future. The temple grounds shall boast adaptable spaces, ready to host cultural gatherings, captivating performances, and enlightening exhibitions and cultural circulation. the proposed architectural project seeks and preserve the past while embracing the future.

Inspired by the ancient education hub of the Acropolis, the project reinterprets the Parthenon temple, preserving its original form while dividing the space in half. One side maintains the temple’s integrity, while the other provides a community space for education. By studying on-site, visitors organically explore ancient history while reinterpreting the Parthenon. This innovative approach allows for a dynamic interaction with the past, fostering a deeper understanding of ancient civilizations. The project seamlessly blends historical preservation with modern educational initiatives, offering a unique opportunity for immersive learning and reinterpretation of cultural heritage

The Axumite Empire was a powerful civilization in Africa that served as a hub for innovation, trade, and cultural exchange. The Axum obelisks, which are the tallest and largest monolithic obelisks in the world, were erected to commemorate powerful leaders and symbolize a connection to the afterlife and cosmic realms. The site has recently been recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site, and a proposal has been made to reimagine it as a modern African metropolis. The proposed site will feature interactive multisensory experiences and beaming vertical light shows that celebrate the site’s legacy in art, culture, history, and the cosmos. The plaza will also serve as a place for locals and tourists to engage in creative and innovative programs, including art, science, and cultural expositions. The site will use solar energy to power its added lighting features and fixtures and will be a model for future eco-friendly revitalizations in the region.

Seahenge Visitor Centre: In 1998, Seahenge was discovered on the Norfolk coast in the UK. The prehistoric man-made ring of timber posts dated back to the early Bronze Age, and was unearthed by the movement of the tides. To much controversy, the timbers were excavated and removed to allow their preservation. This design imagines a replica henge reinstated on site on Holme beach, with an accompanying Visitor Centre supporting the monument. The curved timber and glass form mimics the original ring of oak stumps, with views out to the North Sea and the replica henge alongside.

This mobile shelter takes inspiration from the ‘overloaded’ bicycles use in many Asian countries -in this case Vietnam.  The multistorey vehical is made with natural eco-friendly rattan, a local material with which residents have been crafting since centuries. The interior feels airy while providing protection at the same time. Woven sedge grass mats – another local ancient craft- add warmth and cosiness to the shelter. A beautiful play of light creates a sense of home.

Marta Ali

The concept for this project is to find a practical solution that can help solve homelessness in the streets of Addis Ababa Ethiopia which has been seeing increased population fluctuations due to recent  economic inflation and civil wars … due to these causes a lot of temporary shelters made of small clear plastic huts appear throughout the city’s streets creating clutter and affecting the beauty of the city for tourists residents… the  proposed shelter designs are meant to help provide housing options in a city  where there is high rate of new development yet creative affordable housing solutions are very scarce leading to increased homelessness… the new shelters will be  expandable and able to be constructed with in the city arteries  from simple materials including wood , bamboo, recycled plastics , and  traditional basket making colorful dried plants stems while adding a vibrant aesthetics to the city which has a history of diverse art , culture and architecture.
