Call for entries: Croatia Inspireli Competition for students is open

As a part of the 8th Annual Inspireli awards, the Edu-Project Croatia / Miris Garden competition is now open. It is a unique educational project that gives students a chance to influence the face of 150,000 m2 large development project of a total investment value of approximately 100 million EUR in Starigrad Paklenica, Croatia.

Croatia competition is a part of Inspireli Awards, the world's largest global student contest, with participants from 150 countries and 830+ architects on the jury. It is a sub-category of the Awards and it is the 5th year to compete for a to-be-built project (after Czech Embassy in Ethiopia, STU Campus or just finished Port of Beirut Renewal competition) and this time it has an educational character.


This competition allows students to be involved in shaping the final design and to work with product and technology suppliers from design to implementation, giving them practical experience and bridging academia with practice, connecting students with professionals. 

Technology consultants of the manufacturing companies are at hand to consult about different materials and technologies. 

Individual manufacturing processes and on-site assembly will be shared through our social channels throughout the project.
