FutureBuilt + 120 HOURS

FutureBuilt has partnered with the organizers behind the world’s largest competition for architecture students, 120 HOURS. The conceptual competition is open to both students and professionals within the architecture and design discipline. The original competition format gives participants five days or 120 hours, to solve the FutureBuilt challenge, to develop an interactive concept to highlight FutureBuilts 50 model projects presence in the cityscape of Oslo.

120 HOURS are very proud to have the opportunity to collaborate with FutureBuilt. Both organizations have always been committed to being a contributor to new thoughts and discussions in the architectural society, and climate change is definitely one of those areas where we need to think again.

If you think that you have what it takes, sign up right now and join the 120 HOUR + FutureBuilt Challenge. Sign up as a single person, team, or register your design practice right now!
