ICOMOS Student Competition 2021: 1960 plus – Brutalism

In 2021, the biennial student competition organised by ICOMOS Germany with partner organisations will again be dedicated to the young heritage after 1960. This time, the focus is on béton brut architecture, i.e. exposed concrete buildings that are "raw" in the literal sense of the word, and other testimonies to so-called Brutalism.

The submission deadline is September 27, 2021, and students of architecture, interior design, urban planning, art history, restoration, archaeology or other disciplines relevant to monuments are invited to participate. The competition documents are:
- a detailed description (in German)
