Brief Now Live. Join CHART Architecture 2022!

The full brief for this year’s open call talent competition is now live.

Get your teams ready. Calling all newly graduated architects, designers and artists. We are looking for imaginative temporary pavilions to be installed in the courtyard at Charlottenborg during CHART 2022.


Join us for the eighth edition of CHART Architecture! Our annual 72-hour open call architectural competition, for newly graduated architects, designers and artists with connections to the Nordic region, starts now. CHART Architecture invites teams to submit proposals for temporary architectural pavilions to be installed in the courtyard at Charlottenborg, in the heart of Copenhagen, during CHART.

The theme for CHART Architecture 2022 is: Bio Architecture and we are encouraging participants to explore the potential of organic forms and natural materials in creating explorative, sensuous and sustainable architectural spaces.

The deadline for submissions is: 2 May 2022 12:00 (CET). A jury of internationally-acclaimed individuals, specialising in architecture, art and design, will then select five finalist teams to realise and construct their pavilions at Charlottenborg during CHART 2022, 25 - 28 August.
