ARCASIA Students’
Architectural Design Competition 2016

Theme: Green Lifestyle


The Committee of this competition is composed of members of the Student Jamboree Committee, The 17th ASIAN CONGRESS OF ARCHITECTS.


This is a design ideas competition that invites students in the field of Architecture to contribute ideas and concepts that respond to the theme “Green Lifestyle”. Each country face their own sustainability concerns and students are encouraged to identify, at the same time resolve, these issues by using architectural designs.


Students are free to select a site to come up with design ideas, built or portable or a prototype, which would encourage users to participate in a green and sustainable lifestyle. Students are encouraged to think along lines of cost effectiveness, energy efficiency, low carbon footprint, zero carbon emission and implementable means that may resolve an identified problem found in your particular region of Asia, or one which might even be effective when adapted in many different situations.
