Temporary Housing for Surfers in TarifaBy Madhumita Chakravarti
Events Diary Tweet 0 Comment(s)
reTHINK!NG competitions, an organization focused on promoting competitions on architectural issues relevant to contemporary cultures is organizing a contest on designing temporary housing for surfers in Tarifa, the windsurfing kingdom. Housing has to be designed keeping in mind real conditions of the place, which is primarily a strip of 60 x 900m sectioned transversely to the sea shore, dunes and vegetated area.
Tarifa, facing the sea is at the point of Southern Europe which is closest to Africa and has several prehistoric remains. Because of strong easterly winds at its beaches, the town is almost a pilgrim spot for sea surfing, wind surfing and kite surfing. This leads to a lot of these sport lovers taking up temporary accommodations.
The reTHINK!NG contest is about designing temporary shelters for these water sport lovers. Such properties need to take into account the local conditions, the lifestyles of the spors enthusiasts they are meant for. The architects must be able to read the landscape and negiotiate with it so as to create ZERO Ecological Footprint. All systems must be self sufficient, independent and renewable. The project entry must also take into account the changing conditions on the landscape on account of tides.
The competition will be centered on the following 8 concepts:
Detail, Ecology, Density, Scale, Limit, Mobility, Nature, Housing.For more details on these founing concepts, visit http://rethinkingcompetitions.com
