Design Concrete competition

Design Concrete 2024 is a national student competition which encourages architecture students to explore the benefits of designing sustainably with concrete.

The 2024 project is to submit innovative concrete designs for a nature and art centre and/or associated artist’s studios within the bio-diverse setting of the Ouse Fen Nature Reserve.

The competition is free to enter and is designed to be incorporated into university course work by meeting key curriculum requirements and is aimed at students in their second and third years of study although alternative course structures are also eligible.

Each university will be asked to select a maximum of three students’ work for submission. Independent submissions of work from students whose universities are not embedding the competition brief within their course will also be reviewed and considered.

  • Registration is open from 3rd August 2023 to 5th January 2024
  • Submissions to be made between 3rd August 2023 to 16th April 2024
