International Design Competition: COOK8 / The New Dining Place

Domés International Review of Architecture, following the program ROOM18: The New Urban Hotel (April – November 2016), is launching the program COOK8: The New Dining Place

COOK8 consists of three actions (Competition – Exhibition – Publication) which aim to formulate and implement new ideas about the gathering of people on the occasion of the preparation and consumption of food as means of socialization.

The program begins with an International Design Competition starting from November 21, 2017 to February 8, 2018, about the design of an interior dining space for 8 people, of an area of 24-30m2. What is looked for is the creative re-interpretation and overtaking of the usual approaches which are a function of the conventional building and management arrangements of catering premises (private or communal dining-room, commercial restaurant, café, cafeteria, snack-bar, fast food outlet, canteen, etc.).

Three prizes (2,000€ each) and six honorable memos will be awarded. The three awarded entries will be realised on full scale (1:1), at the Benaki Art Museum, Athens, Greece.

Early bird: 40 € from 20.11.2017 to 31.12.2017
