BUILDNER’S

Architecture competition
series in Iceland

Three Architecture competitions in iceland

Buildner architecture competition organisers are proud to present our first country-based architecture competition series. For these competition series we have partnered with a select few organisations, who operate from a breathtaking region of northern Iceland that is known for its natural wonders.

As a result of this collaboration with our Icelandic partners, we are therefore proud to present the following architecture competitions:

  • ICELAND BLACK LAVA FIELDS VISITOR CENTRE
  • ICELAND VOLCANO MUSEUM
  • ICELAND THERMAL SPRINGS GUEST HOUSE

All three competition sites are located within close proximity of each other, making this an ideal opportunity to organise a visit to northern Iceland to see all 3 competition sites and experience the magnificence of Iceland in person! (Note: Book your flight in advance for the best rates as summer is Iceland's peak season for tourism.)

We are asking for governments and nonprofit organisations from around the world to submit their proposals for the next Buildner international architecture competition series. If you represent a government or non-profit organisation would be very happy to hear from you to discuss how we could potentially collaborate on future competitions and create a similar competition or series based in your country. Check out more information here, or contact us directly.
