Ideas Will Be Rewarded In The Competition Realizing Sustainable City Scenarios !

Organized by Izocam with its social responsibility awareness and providing huge opportunities for university students, 16th Izocam Student Competition will be held this year. In the competition, open for each faculty and department, students will create a ‘socially and climatologically sustainable and reproducible settlement’ scenario.

 In the competition featuring the ‘One Scenario One Project’ title, students will submit their sustainable living projects to jury members on March 07, 2016.  Successful teams will qualify for the second phase where they will design the most basic units of living spaces – houses.  Top three projects selected by the jury will also be entitled to join the international competition to be held in Minsk.

 

The topic of 16th Izocam Student Competition has been specified as “Socially and climatologically sustainable and reproducible settlements”. In the first stage of the competition, composed of two stages, students are expected to develop a scenario including a sustainable urban living.
 

Focusing on the city of Brest in Belarus, the competition will see students developing a living space considering social, cultural and climatic qualities of the city; students will be able to join the competition individually or as a team up to 3 people, if they wish so. The students will be able to their ideas, projects, details, technologies - their scenario encompassing the physical scope in short – freely, in any form.  Scenarios selected among those submitted to www.izocamogrenciyarismasi.com by March 07, 2016 will be qualified to the second phase. In the second phase, students will present their detailed architectural projects, down to the houses – the most basic elements of a living space – in the jury meeting to be held on April 23, 2016.
 

The first, second and third projects will be given 8000, 6000 and 4000 TL prize respectively, as well as the opportunity to represent our country in the international finals.  In addition, all students participating in the competition will be given a participation certificate, while those qualified for the second phase will be given an achievement certificate and a small reward.
