The Ekokultplus Association and the Faculties of Architecture of the Universities of Belgrade, Zagreb and Podgorica are announcing an international architectural competition for a solution on the topic of MICRO ECO HOUSE 2021.
The international architectural competition MICRO ECO HOUSE 2021 is intended for young architects, designers, landscape architects and applied artists up to the age of 30 and faculty students from the above fields. The concept of a micro house represents unique archaic objects located in nature, which are theoretically based on the idea of a minimalist house, whose focus is on its functional and form aspects, but also on social issues. It represents a possible answer to the question of the existential minimum for residence.
The competition will open the question of an eco-sustainable house, with its adaptation to the natural context and use of renewable energy sources and natural, environmentally sustainable materials, but it should also to give an answer about the possible existential minimum of a living space while providing all aspects of sustainable comfort.
Present moment, marked by the corona virus pandemic, has initiated an increased interest in living in nature and has opened the possibility to influence and improve access to green technologies in a creative way. It has given the incentive to the development of the overall prefabricated house industry in the region, as one of the models of sustainable construction in the future.
The aim of the project is to redefine the basic human needs for living in nature and consequently, to design a flexible and multifunctional facility seen as an essential part of the human environment, with the introduction of new technological, constructive, thermotechnical and energy efficient methods, with the use of renewable energy sources, traditional construction methods and natural materials.
The competition aims to promote young creators and to affirm the concept of ecological architecture through social networks and accompanying media. In this way, the creativity of the younger generations is enriched by an environmentally sustainable approach to the design, engineering and construction of buildings, which contributes to environmental protection and prevention of further climate change by using renewable energy sources - says the president of the international jury of architects, Mr. Vladimir Lovrić.
