ARKxSITE is pleased to announce the ‘SITE CLOISTER’ international architecture ideas competition for architecture students and young professionals (≤ 40 years old). Registration is now open and we would kindly ask for your help in promoting it.
This international one-stage architecture ideas competition invites all architecture students, young architects and young professionals with a degree in architecture studies (≤ 40 years old) to develop and submit compelling ideas for the design of a Site Cloister located near the ‘Aldeia da Mata’ dolmen, in Crato, Portugal. The Site Cloister aims to create a museological path to enhance the historical significance and contemplative nature of the ‘Aldeia da Mata’ dolmen. It is an intimate and secluded place between the natural landscape and the ‘inner courtyard’ where the megalithic monument becomes a powerful scenery. A sequence of spaces, above and / or below ground, welcome visitors and provide shade while stimulating movement between open-air and / or enclosed spaces and outdoor environments.
