Cosentino Design Challenge 2019

The Cosentino Design Challenge, an annual architecture and Design Challenge for students organised by Grupo Cosentino has been recently opened in its 2019 edition with the aim to support students during their formative stage and to encourage them to research on different conceptual approaches to the layout of spaces and the construction systems.


About

Cosentino Design Challenge , competitions in Architecture and Design for students organised by Grupo Cosentino, has been recently opened for entires in its 2019 editon.

The aim of Cosentino Design Challenge competition is to support students during their formative stage and to encourage them to research on different conceptual approaches to the layout of spaces and the construction systems defining them. This research and reflection, along with the themes proposed in each edition, have as their basic principle respect for the environment, reuse and management of waste and the possibility of reusing excess material as high-quality raw material.

Cosentino Design Challenge consists of two categories:

CDC International Design

The 13th Cosentino Design Challenge International Design Competition has the objective of: “COSENTINO & Energy”. Students may choose the form and surface of the area of action freely.

Focus must be on:
- The possible relationship between Cosentino and the use of energy that could go online with the company
- Usability of a design based on the use of energy as a key element
- Spatial experience, in case of related to the creation of spaces
- Appropriate use of energy, with regard to the concept, the spatial experience or the application, and the qualities and quality of the materials

The design must include:
- A design proposal, totally open to the set topic “Cosentino & Energy” for each student
- The construction of the element and/or space created must be done using cross-sections, detailed drawings and instructions for assembly
- Consideration must be given to the manufacturability of the pieces and that these can only be made from flat panels and pieces cut directly from a slab

The design must explain:
The solution of the space and/or object and its interaction to the application of the materials and the main facets must be defined properly.

The following aspects will be considered to be of special interest:
- The Research on the spatial experience of the setting, and the relationship with energy.
- The Use of materials and the main principles that respect the environment.
- Creativity in the design.
- The adaptation of the project idea to the expressive capacity of Cosentino brand materials and products, and any new designs for materials, finishes, applications, etc. that may be produced.

CDC International Architecture

The 13th Cosentino Design Challenge International Architecture Competition has the objective of working on: "COSENTINO & Water"

The design must include:
- An architecture proposal, totally open to the set topic “Cosentino and Water” for each student.
- The construction of the space and/or element created must be done using cross-sections, detailed drawings and instructions for assembly.
- Other non-Cosentino materials (e.g. wood, glass, etc.) may be used to a certain extent.
- Consideration must be given to the feasible production of the design and that it can only be made using flat panels and pieces cut directly from a slab

The design must explain:
The solution of the space and/or object proposed by the student and its interaction to the application of the materials and the main facets must be defined.

The following aspects will be considered to be of special interest:
- The Research on the spatial experience and his relationship with the liquid element.
- The Use of materials and the main principles that respect the environment, and water in particular.
- Creativity in the design.
- The adaptation of the project idea to the expressive capacity of Cosentino brand materials and products, and any new designs for materials, finishes, applications, etc. that may be produced.

The size of the panel must always be DIN A1. File at 300ppp and .jpg. The format can be vertical or horizontal as the student prefers.

The competition is open for submissions at 9 a.m. on 1st of October 2018 and closes at 11,59 p.m. on 1st of June 2019.

The jury will examine the following criteria:

• The conceptual and technical quality of the project.
• The analytical study, thought process and research of the subject.
• The research on the spatial experience of the suroundings.
• The creativity of the design.
• The innovativeness of the design.
• The environmental respect of the design.
• The adaptation of the project idea to the expressive capacity of COSENTINO GROUP brand materials and products.
• New ideas for materials, finishes, applications, etc. that may arise.
• The feasbility for the development and construction of the projects presented.
• The adaptation of the chosen medium for the presentation with regards to graphics, expressivity and the kind of idea presented.
• The presentational quality of the design.

The presentation of prizes will take place at an official event whose date and location will be made known to finalists and participating educational centres.

Both categories of the 13th Cosentino Design Challenge – International Design Competition and International Architecture Competition – are open to students enrolled in the 2018-2019 academic year at any educational centre or polytechnic offering courses in design, architecture, interior architecture or other similar fields of study.

Prize

For each category (CDC13 Architecture and CDC13 Design) the following prizes will be awarded: Three first prizes, three second prizes, and special mentions. These comprise a total of six first prizes and six second prizes plus as many special mentions as the jury sees fit to award.

Each of the six first prizes will consist of €1,000.
