Dear Think Spacers,
As the first competition registration opens, we welcome you into the new and exciting season of Think Space concept degree competitions. This competition cycle will be opened by Territories, inspecting the territorial and economic claims in the Arctic area, under the light of the cycle theme - MONEY. Territories competition will be juried by David A. Garcia of MAP architects - a design platform based in Copenhagen, active internationally and engaged mostly with projects in challenging environments. From flood prone areas, to arctic regions, from the challenges of desertification or abandoned infrastructure, our methodology aims to turn hazards into assets and believe that what exists is only a small part of what is possible.+ more
