Call for registration to Kitesurf School Lençóis Maranhenses

The Lençóis Maranhenses Kitesurf School contest proposes a space where you can experience the relationship between sport, nature and the human being. The project must highlight the uniqueness of the place and that it becomes a space where there is comprehensive respect for the entire landscape, culture and atmosphere of the place.

This last point is important since tourists from Europe or America come to the place constantly interested in knowing the place and in fact it is such an inaccessible place that it is normal to make small camping in the area. That is why this kitesurfing school has to allow itinerant accommodation of people, but without excessive contamination of the place.

Who can participate?

All students and architects or related professions anywhere in the world can participate in the contest. Participation can be individual or in groups, being eight (8) the maximum number of members. Team members can be from all disciplines (artists, philosophers, photographers, etc.), without being necessary, although advisable, the presence of an architect or architecture student. It is allowed that members are from different universities and countries.

The price of registration is the price that each participating team much pay, regardless of the number of members.

In case that one team or participant wants to submit more than one proposal for the same competition must register twice (or as many as want to present projects) paying the appropriate fee each time.

Under no circumstances should the participation of any juror, or anyone how have a professional relationship with any of the jury will be accepted.
