The iWISE Olympiad committee would like to give students the opportunity to explore new concepts and techniques without the fear of making mistakes. We are looking for clear and consistent aesthetic rhythm throughout a students’ portfolio that explores a diverse range of areas within the field of architecture. Our aim is to help students build confidence in their work even when they believe their designs aren’t ready for public consumption, this in turn will teach them to handle public scrutiny. Students will gain practical experience for their portfolio which will be advantageous in future opportunities, in addition they will gain recognition within the architectural field and stay well practiced. The contest will be adjudicated by a talented set of adjudicators, who have multiple disciplines and work across various creative sectors. We provide an opportunity for students to showcase their skills and creativity. This category is open to all students, artistic creators and designers who are aged 10 to 24 years old. Students can participate as individuals or as teams of 3 members max.
