Bee Breeders indice, in collaborazione con CDS NORD property developers, un concorso di architettura dal titolo Trans Siberian Pit Stops. La competizione, aperta a tutti, vuole creare un centro turistico replicabile lungo il percorso seguito dal famoso treno, dando alla struttura un design riconoscibile e facendola diventare parte integrante dell'attrattiva su rotaie, in modo tale che sia preservata ed esaltata la storia e l'identità di una delle rotte sui binari più famose nel mondo.

Le iscrizioni sono aperte dal 13 luglio al 28 settembre 2016.
Il termine ultimo per la consegna degli elaborati è il 19 ottobre 2016.

The Trans Siberian Pit Stops architecture competition is calling for submissions for a tourist centre that can be replicated along the world famous train route. Organised in cooperation with CDS NORD property developers, the Trans Siberian Pit Stops architecture competition is looking for designs for an instantly recognisable structure that would become a part of this iconic attraction, fitting in with the history and identity of one of the most well-travelled routes in the world.

There is no specific site selected for this competition, however the winning proposals that will be considered for construction will be situated at various locations along the rail network. Therefore the winning designs will need to be easily replicated into identical structures, and comfortably fit into one work station that can be situated in multiple locations and function in all weather conditions.

The Trans Siberian Pit Stop's main function would be to provide the most essential information about the area that particular stop is located in. This would include information about nearby tourist attractions, provide assistance to tourists, as well as information on local accommodation options.

The Trans Siberian Pit Stops architecture competition is a chance for architecture enthusiasts to combine the rich cultural history of this iconic train route with modern architecture techniques, to create something that will become a part of this world famous landmark.


Competition is open for all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum).
