In view of the success of the First Edition of the Morph Next Awards, we present you the second edition. The main OBJECTIVE of the Morph awards is to encourage and promote INNOVATION among architectural students. Therefore, we seek to recognize those students who defy the traditional laws of drawing and expression and who, like us, propose innovative solutions for the current design and construction processes. We invite all those who want to participate in this era of digital revolution, to the SECOND MORPH NEXT ARCHITECTURAL INNOVATION PRIZE CONTEST.
This second edition, like the first, aims to recognize all the sustainable, sensitive, innovative projects that break the traditional dogmas of architecture; projects that investigate, discover, integrate knowledge and new design or construction strategies, projects that stimulate ideas, promote technological advances and go one step ahead of the future.
- WOW! : We will reward the most innovative and original designs, both in their exterior design and form, as well as those that present a novelty in their constructive system or innovation in some of the construction processes ... here we have a place for even those who continue to use parchments and pens to draw.
- SMART GREEN: We always seek to obtain the highest LEED-BREEAM rating in our buildings, the leading worldwide sustainable certificate in construction. We look for projects that prioritize sustainability above all and seek architectural integration in a sustainable environment. We have joined the Smart Green Challenge proposed by LG in its bid to lead a movement that positively contributes in reducing CO2 emissions, saving electricity and water. With this movement, we demand a conscious consumption, responsibility and commitment to the environment
- NEXT: The ones drawn and designed with the most innovative technology such as the BIM modeling system, both in ArchiCAD and in Revit as well as others, such as Grasshopper, Phyton, Lumion, Rhinoceros ... if you use a program, we do not know, you have already won our hearts.
