for this original competition, IE school of architecture & design puts together an intentionally broad brief. as restrictive guidelines are not included, students or young professionals are free to propose any chosen aspect that could potentially re-envision what a vertical campus entails. tackling issues can range from improving traditional student residence, to sustainability or even urban infrastructure for mobility and accessibility. there are countless solutions to introduce, whether classroom or sport related. with no constraints, any submission can be a winner!
the elaborate jury panel assures applicants a holistic critique. from the school’s program and real estate directors, to head architects and managing partners, each project will be judged upon talent and creative thinking. a similar diversity applies to the offered courses that include bachelor’s in architectural studies, and design; master’s in strategic interior design, real estate development, global master in real estate development, and business for architecture and design. with the latter two also available online, anyone from any part of the world may attend! most importantly, with each course being different including duration, location and format, the opportunity to go for the best suited program is a definite plus.
