The third edition of the "Workplace Reimagined" competition invites architects, designers, engineers, students, and creative thinkers worldwide to redefine the workspace of the future.

This international challenge aims to anticipate the evolving needs of a modern workforce that has increasingly embraced remote work. As we navigate this significant shift in work dynamics, participants are tasked with envisioning a flexible, sustainable, and digitally-integrated workspace for approximately 100 employees, which serves as an effective hub for collaboration, innovation, and productivity.


A critical aspect of the competition is the strategic selection of the site, either existing or theoretical, reflecting its unique attributes and potential. The design should incorporate considerations of flexibility and adaptability, sustainability, digital integration, human-centric design, community and culture, and multifunctionality. The challenge seeks innovative solutions that balance remote working trends with the necessity for physical spaces to foster a shared sense of identity and community. 

"Workplace Reimagined / Edition #3" is an exciting opportunity for the participants to reshape the professional landscape, reflecting the transformation brought about by the remote work revolution. The competition encourages the creation of future-proof workspaces that respond to a rapidly changing work environment, merge the physical and digital realms seamlessly, and prioritize the well-being of their users. Join us in creating a visionary blueprint for the workplace of the future.
