Launching CHART Architecture 2021

Opublikowano 23 kwietnia 2021

72-hour open call talent competition kicks off 30 April


We’re happy to announce the launch of the 7th edition of our open talent competition, CHART Architecture. Emerging architects, designers, and artists are invited to present their ideas for temporary pavilions, setting the social stage for CHART 2021, 26-29 August.

An international jury selects five finalist teams who will build and display their project in the courtyards of Charlottenborg in Copenhagen during CHART.

The competition calls for wild, imaginative, and curious projects. Teams are encouraged to take a cross-disciplinary approach by working across architecture, design, art, and beyond. 

With the theme of ‘Social Architecture’ participants are challenged to explore the use of architecture as a powerful tool to create new spatial and social experiences.

After a year of social distancing we all crave collective experiences. With CHART Architecture we ask young talents to rethink how architecture can set the frame for new social and collective interactions. We can’t wait to be inspired and surprised.

I look forward to seeing all kinds of unexpected interpretations of this year’s theme. To see them realised in such a short time frame is a rarity and a treat.
