WoodArch PIELES 2023-24 Architectural Envelope Competition: Wooden Wraps for Existing Buildings
Launch of the Architectural Envelope Competition: Wooden Wraps for Existing Buildings. An invitation from WoodArch, sponsored by Aoa and the Chilean Architects Association.
The jury will be composed of Mauricio Léniz (Competition Director), Michel Rojkind (International Honorary Member), and Chilean judges Alex Brahm, Tania Gebauer, Martín Hurtado, Alberto Moletto, Carolina Portugueis, Andrea von Chrismar, and Matías Zegers.
The WoodArch 2023-2024 competition embraces these principles and aims to explore new forms of intervention in urban impact structures through wooden envelopes. These interventions should be located within the urban space, in existing buildings, and have an impact on the urban conditions of the context. The new envelopes should seek to preserve the physical and cultural memory of the pre-existing structures while providing a new interpretation of their use through programs or facilities that are enhanced by the material.
