DE

concretedesigncompetition.de 

Concrete, as a building and construction material, its specific properties and applications are to be researched and put into use in the Concrete Design Competition. The competition organised by the European cement and concrete industry invites students and graduates of architecture, interior design, urban planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering, and design to submit their ideas and projects. These can be objects, building designs or urban and landscape planning concepts. This year’s theme of “Tactility” places particular emphasis on the various haptic qualities that concrete can have. There are 3,000 euros to win as well as book vouchers. The week-long Concrete Design masterclass in Brussels is also in store for the winners of the individual countries in this Europe-wide competition.

Mut zur Wut

DE
– 30.04.2018
mutzurwut.com 

Even if a poster cannot solve the pressing problems of our world, it can at least steer our attention towards grievances and convey our anger about them. Based on this approach, for the eighth time in its history, Mut zur Wut [Be Angry] is seeking poster designs from around the world that have the potential to prompt people to think and, in the best scenario, to act. This year, the focus is on human rights. These were proclaimed back in 1948 by the United Nations with the general declaration that “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”, but to this day, we are still far from always applying this principle universally. The task for all the designers interested in this project is to denounce the fact that human beings continue to be persecuted or treated unjustly, for example based on their opinions, religion, origin, skin colour or gender.
