competition

We founded Studio 8FOLD on the premise that no idea is impossible. Therefore, we’re announcing a call for entries for a design competition.

 

Studio 8FOLD will provide the winning entry with a FREE concept design.

All you need to do is submit the following:

  • a brief description of your idea/ project

  • photographs, sketches, art... any visual material to help us better understand your brief

  • some background information/ your story

Entry

We’re accepting pitches from the wild and fantastic to the environmentally sound. First and foremost, the idea starts with you. Whether you’re an artist wanting a new studio, a musician in need of a sound proof environment or someone looking for a new sustainable home - there are no rules. 
 
Bonus points will go to pitches that align with our core values. This might include briefs that demonstrate a sustainable approach, nuanced interest in how we live at home, an intelligent new use of an old space or an entirely fresh look at the conventional, out-of-the-box idea.

 

Process

The top five briefs (selected by the studio) will receive a 45-60 minute online design consultation to explore and develop your ideas with our team. Each finalist will receive a list of the potential opportunities and practical next steps for their project, as well as a fitting look-book of materials and references that suit the project.

Grand Prize
The winner will receive full design concept consultations and drawing set, 3D visualisations and a VR render of their project (what is VR?).

Dates

Competition closes on the 31st of July 2020 at 18h00 (GMT). Winners will be announced on this page on the 14th of August 2020.

Jury

Included in the jury are a range of thinkers from different walks of life from architecture and structural engineering to impact investing and writers.
