Eligibility The Prize is open to all students of architecture and engineering from 4. Semester (vordiplom) and can be worked out individually or in teams (we would like to encourage mixed teams of architecture and engineering students).

The objective of the Prize is to explore and to design architectural systems for temporary architecture in general - specific aspects such as mobility, component design, transport, etc. should be essential characteristics to the concepts. The temporary units could deal with the issues of exhibition, shows, demonstrations, performances of any kind, ideally the function has a communal or social relevance and includes people as spectators, actors, audience, etc.

The concepts can encourage flexible, individual units or open lightweight structures and try to define spaces in a subtle manner. A high degree of attention should be given to the issues of adequacy of construction, dimension, material and detail.
