Combo Competitions organizes an international ideas competitions for designers of any field to design a place of worship in London.
Faith is a powerful word, with different meaning to us all. It can provide hope and security, trust and confidence. It helps numerous people through the day, every day. With faith comes conviction. However, with conviction sometimes follows conflict. And conflicts often stem from a lack of understanding. In a perfect world we would all have a mutual acceptance towards each other, regardless of what we know about someone else's beliefs and opinions. In the meantime, a way to help people embracing a different faith than their own could be to try and educate them.
FAITH! wants to address this by merging two concepts, namely religion and knowledge.
The challenge consists of two parts: to design a place of worship, and a place of information. The idea behind this combination builds on the notion that allowing people of different faiths to come together, and share their thoughts and experiences, could enrich everyone.
In addition to the actual place of worship, the design proposal should include a component dedicated to informing and educating people who are interested in knowing more about that specific religion. Whether this component is part of the overall structure or a freestanding object - or concept - should be decided by the participant.
The competitions of Combo Competitions are open to all individuals and groups interested in any of the creative disciplines spanning from graphic- to urban design, and everything in between. Students and professionals are equally welcome. Each submission can be created by an individual, or by a team of 2-4 participants.
- 1st prize: £1,200 (one thousand two hundred British pounds)
- 2nd prize: £600 (six hundred British pounds)
- 3rd prize: £200 (two hundred British pounds)
The jury will also recognize a number of honorable mentions.
In addition to the cash prizes, the winners will receive a personal page within the www.combocompetitions.com domain, showing their proposal along with the jury's motivation. A selection of the winning proposals will be published on various websites and blogs and/or their printed counterpart. Previous publications include, among others: Bustler, ArchDaily, WA - Wettbewerbe Aktuell and Ottagono.
