The ECOS announces architecture competition titled ECOS FEZ Design Competition for the best design for infrastructural objects in the Free Economic Zone in Armenia.
This competition invites all young and talented designers and enables them to participate in the creation of the interior and exterior design of buildings and structures in the Free Economic Zone in Armenia.
ECOS is an innovative company seeking for offbeat solutions everywhere: from technical infrastructure of FEZ, to its architecture, design, and landscape design concepts. We believe that young designers and architects will offer an unconventional solution of this task. The purpose of the ECOS FEZ is to create in Armenia an ecosystem for the development of export-oriented companies in the field of high and information technologies, including the formation of an industry of companies creating products based on blockchain technologies, as well as attracting highly qualified specialists and world-class experts, a concentration of human, research and development and investment and financial potential necessary for the sustainable development of the socio-economic situation in the Republic of Armenia. The ECOS gives young creative people from all around the world the opportunity to express their views on the future through innovative and promising proposals. In the era of globalization, when the technological revolution prevails, there is a need to rethink the connection between a city, an individual and high technology.
Organisers are looking for bold solutions, distinctive and non-conventional ones, which will help create the image of innovative Armenia and give a chance to designers and architects to contribute to the creation of the infrastructure. The latter will serve for the development of high-tech projects in Armenia that will allow a balanced regional development of the country.
