This international one-stage architecture ideas competition invites all architecture students, young architects and young professionals with a degree in architecture studies (≤ 40 years old) to develop and submit compelling ideas for the design of a Site Bathhouse located at the Milreu Fortress, in Ericeira, Portugal.

The Site Bathhouse is an introspective, fully immersive embodied sensory experience of water, light, scents, sound and temperature, where the arrival, movement, acclimation and relaxation create an intimate and unified relationship between place, body and matter in architecture.

The Milreu Fortress is a historical landmark located within a remarkable place, a powerful natural scenery where the remains of the Fortress together with the steep cliffs and the immensity of the Atlantic ocean are prominent features within this setting.
