The Tanzanian Hostel Design Competition is an international design competition to attract the best design ideas and solutions from architects and architectural students from around the world to create a place of healing and rest on two sites, near to Tanzania’s primary cancer treatment hospitals. Participants in the competition may submit designs for either site or a prototype solution that are adaptable to both Tanzanian sites.
There are two tracks for the competition: one for professionals and one for students. Graduate students who are working full-time may submit to the professional track. Participants may compete in teams and should submit one entry for the team.
The general requirements for the hostels are below to allow designers the opportunity to begin the process of researching building technologies and the cultural context for which these hostels will be placed. Detailed site surveys are underway for the plots of both hostel locations, to be provided on our website at a later date.
