Competitiveness of Young Architects
Being an Architect was once a lot more respected by society as a role model. Only those who were gifted with both creative and practical minds could excel in this profession. Good architectural designs have to be innovative, aesthetic and practical at the same time. Today, more and more young professional architectural designers were being trained even more rigorously than ever. Though, countless creative ideas and designs go unnoticed and discarded in this new information age.
We, architectural designers, have spent so many years on academic projects. A few degree shows and portfolios should not be the only ways to showcase our creativities and abilities. It is for this reason, the mOOO team, a group of architectural designers based in the United Kingdom, created this international platform to promote young talents through hosting architecture design competitions.
Occasional crits and tutorials are far from adequate for design education. It is also our goal to provide stimulating briefs that challenge the creative minds of international designers. What we do is almost equivalent to the milking process of cows. Creativity dies if not exercised constantly.
we are the agents of a creativity farm
We give credits to Design Talents
We believe all good designs deserve some credit. While it is difficult to rank ideas and designs, competition jurors would select up to 36 entries with outstanding creative and aesthetic designs for publications. While receiving international recognition, mOOO competitions generally have more than one winner to highlight the merits of different designs.
From all the top entries, the People’s Choice Awards would be given to the entries with the most votes to encourage young talents and increase recognition from supportive laymen.
Submission entries have to achieve a certain standard and land within the top quartile amongst all entries to be considered for our shortlist.
Winning designs, shortlisted entries, and selected editor’s choices will be featured in mOOO’s design publication by the editorial board.
