“With CHART Architecture we ask young talents to rethink how architecture can set the frame for new social and collective interactions. We can’t wait to be inspired and surprised. Have fun!”

– Nanna Hjortenberg, Director of CHART



CHART Architecture is a 72-hour open call competition. The competition is open to graduate students, architects, designers and artists (who graduated within the last 7 years) as well as newly established studios (started within the last 5 years), who are yet to realise larger building projects. CHART encourages interdisciplinary teams to participate in the competition. Participants in the competition must be either educated from or living in the Nordic countries.

This year, the cross-disciplinary, international jury includes: architect Bjarke Ingels (BIG); architect Shohei Shigematsu (OMA); designer Sabine Marcelis; artist Nina Beier; Director Simon Lamuniére (OPEN HOUSE); and architect David Zahle (BIG).

The competition begins Friday, 30 April at 12pm. Deadline for submission of proposals is Monday, 3 May at 12pm.

CHART Architecture 2021 is made possible in collaboration with CAFx, Arup, and FRAME, and with support from Realdania, The Dreyer Foundation, Danish Arts Foundation, Copenhagen Municipality, and FOSS.
