Melbourbe Tattoo Academy. Una scuola di tattoo nel cuore della città australiana

concorso internazionale di architettura

iscrizioni entro il 21 settembre 2016 | consegna entro il 21 ottobre 2016

Bee Breeders indice il concorso internazionale di architettura The Bee Breeders Melbourne Tattoo Academy, attraverso il quale si richiede ai partecipanti di dare un volto nuovo ad un edificio situato in una delle più importanti aree multiculturali della città perché diventi la culla dell'arte del tattoo. Il posto dovrebbe essere una scuola per imparare a realizzare tatuaggi, ma al tempo stesso offrire uno spazio per workshop, un alloggio sotto forma di ostello e una zona comune che possa diventare una galleria, una sala meeting o un caffè concettuale.

La nuova accademia potrebbe costituire un segno riconoscibile nella città per gli abitanti e un'attrattiva turistica per i visitatori. Il design deve essere originale e creativo, capace di captare e di trasmettere le vibrazioni e l'atmosfera che caratterizzano una delle città più aperte e multiculturali del mondo.

Il concorso è aperto a tutti e non sono necessari particolari requisiti di professionalità. La partecipazione può avvenire in forma individuale o in team, composto da massimo 4 membri. 

Le iscrizioni sono aperte dal 7 luglio al 21 settembre 2016. La consegna degli elaborati andrà effettuata entro il 21 ottobre 2016.

Tattoo have been a part of human culture for centuries, dating back as far as the ancient Greeks and Romans. The art of tattooing was traditionally used to mark warriors and sailors throughout human history, creating an association between tattoos and a certain type of character. And while tattoos have become increasingly popular in recent years, there is still something of a stigma surrounding the art.

The Melbourne Tattoo Academy architecture competition is tasking participants with creating designs for a building in one of the most popular locations of this multicultural city, where the art of tattooing can be practiced and the stigma broken. The main purpose of the building should be to function as a school for the art of tattooing, offering space for workshops, accommodation in the form of a hostel, and a public gallery/meeting area as well as a conceptual café.

The academy should have the potential to become a recognisable landmark for the locals, as well as a popular tourist attraction for international visitors. Designs should be bold and creative, and in keeping with the vibe and atmosphere of one of the world's most diverse and open-minded cities.

ELEGIBILITY

Competition is open for all. No professional qualification is required.

Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum).
