The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and HP are pleased to announce the 4th Advanced Architecture Contest, on the theme of CITY-SENSE: Shaping our environment with real-time data.

The aim of the competition is to promote discussion and research through which to generate insights and visions, ideas and proposals that help us envisage what the city and the habitat of the 21st century will be like.

The competition is open to architects, engineers, planners, designers and artists who want to contribute to progress in making the world more habitable by developing a proposal capable of responding to emerging challenges in areas such as ecology, information technology, architecture, and urban planning, with the purpose of balancing the impact real-time data collection might have on sensor-driven cities.

The competition is opened to students and professionals.

The three teams leaders will receive cash prizes, and a one-year grant to take the Master in Advanced Architecture at IAAC and research in greater depth the manufacture of self-sufficient architecture.. All of the projects selected will be featured in a special book produced in conjunction with the Actar-Birkhauser publishing house like in the three previous editions.

1st Prize: 3,000 € + Master in Advanced Architecture (value 14.250,00 €)
2nd Prize: 2,000 € + Master in Advanced Architecture (value 14.250,00 €)
3rd Prize: 1,000 € + Master in Advanced Architecture (value 14.250,00 €)

The selected projects will go on show in a major exhibition, due to open in Barcelona in May 2012, which will then travel to key cities around the world.
