The stories of buildings. 1st Guiding Architects competition

Cada edificio tiene una historia. Muchos de ellos provocan una impresión a primera vista pero son aún más interesantes por su historia. En algunos casos, incluso, es necesario conocer su historia para comprender el edificio. Eso es lo que busca esta convocatoria. Los participantes deberán tener menos de 30 años. La fecha límite es el 1 de marzo de 2011.

Every building has a story. There are lots of buildings which make an impression at first sight and are made even more interesting by their story. In some cases, though, it’s necessary to know the story in order to understand the building.  Tiny, inconspicuous or downright ugly structures can prove to be true masterpieces if you know the story behind them. Suddenly they turn out to possess meaning, hidden beauty or simply a really good punchline.  That’s what we’re looking for.
Guiding Architects is looking for the narratives behind architecture.
Send us your example of a building with a story!
The lucky winner will receive a trip for 2 persons to Amsterdam, Berlin or Budapest, including flights, 2 nights at a ***-hotel and an exclusive half-day guided tour.
Entrants have to be 30 years or younger (but of age) on 1 March 2011.
Please send a photo (max. 2MB) of a work of architecture, accompanied by an English text (max. 700 words) to info@guiding-architects.net until March 1, 2011.
The winning entry will be selected by a jury from the Guiding Architects Network.
