Who may enter
The competition is open to anyone.

The competition is organised by Korean Institute of Architects BUSAN.

This year's theme is "Senses and Matrials".

In Architecture, materials aren’t simply limited to the element which composes a structure. The materials are reproduced according to the substance, but importantly, it signifies being greater than the mass only. Thus, it plays a key role in the perceptional process when the five senses are used including the touch feel materials. Furthermore, it indicates that such experiences undertaken by human beings can be integrated through the sense organs. Materials related to the senses of human beings include a metaphysical meaning such as regions, context, land, and memory. Therefore, this competition is aimed at showing architecture and cities that are reproduced in relation to the materials and the senses of human beings.
