CHART 2021: 72-hour open call talent competition for emerging architects, designers, and artists

Open call

21. marts 2021

On April 30rd CHART 2021 kicks off a 72-hour open call talent competition for the 7th edition of CHART Architecture. Emerging architects, designers, and artists are invited to present their ideas for temporary pavilions, setting the social stage for CHART 2021 on August 26-29.

An international jury selects five finalist teams, who will build and display their project in the courtyards of Charlottenborg in Copenhagen during CHART.

The competition calls for wild, imaginative, and curious projects. Teams are encouraged to take a cross-disciplinary approach by working across architecture, design, art, and beyond.

With the theme of ‘Social Architecture’ participants are challenged to explore the use of architecture as a powerful tool to create new spatial and social experiences.

“After a year of social distancing we all crave collective experiences. With CHART Architecture we ask young talents to rethink how architecture can set the frame for new social and collective interactions. We can’t wait to be inspired and surprised.”

Nanna Hjortenberg, Director of CHART

The competition brief will be released on April 30rd at 12pm at CHART ART FAIR.

Deadline for submission is May 3rd at 12pm.
