Emerge, Zimbabwean architectural competition

Emerge, Zimbabwean architectural competition

Emerge, an organisation founded by Zimbabwean architect and Rotarian Ruvimbo Moyo, offers competitions to Zimbabwean design students. These competitions promote innovative concepts that re-think the current rural and urban conditions, offering new proposals that are a direct reflection of the continent’s transformative efforts and mobilizing young designers to make vital contributions to their communities and country.

 Emerge would like to see your new visions for a Youth and Entrepreneurship Centre. The Youth and Entrepreneurship Centre aims to enhance the youth’s economic participation by providing incubation spaces that offer skills and mentorship programs. This centre will integrate business incubation, skills training and social interaction in a safe and secure environment. It will be animated by the activity and opportunity offered in the spaces. Participants are called to create a dynamic landscape that reflects the vibrancy of such a centre.

If we can offer our youth spaces and opportunities to innovate in business and technology, we can start addressing the socio-economic problems that plague our country. Submissions should however consider (but not limited to): Sustainability Aesthetics Building technology Functionality Spatial configuration Choice of materials Human interaction.
