India Competition – Spiretec

I’m encouraging all to look into the Spiretec Competition.

The SPIRETEC competition will culminate in the construction of part of a sustainable, mixed-use office park outside of New Delhi.   It is promoted by Spire World as a part of its vision to seek a new paradigm for mainstream development, and therein for Indian architecture and the role it must seek to play in India’s growth story.  In a spirit of democratic pluralistic thought and empowerment, Spire World has created an International Open Competition, the SPIRETEC Competition, to design its mixed use district that ties key public spaces together culminating in a landmark design that serves as a beacon for the area.  A rarity in the private sector, this is the first Open Competition for a significant development project in India. It assumes further significance as it introduces an opportunity to invigorate the repetitive landscape of private development with significant imagery and content brought about through a process of fair selection by a team of international jury members.  The jury is a diverse group, including some very prestigious architects, critics, academics, etc.  Awards total $375,000, registration ends Dec. 15, 2010, and submission deadline is Jan. 15, 2011.  To see details, or to register for the competition, see  http://spireteccompetition.com/home.php.
