Up close with FuturArc Prize 2023: Campus Tours & Events
8 FEBRUARY 2023 – UPDATE: On Tuesday, 30 January 2023, our team conducted a virtual presentation via Teams to students of King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), Thailand. During the presentation, we introduced FuturArc Prize as an annually recurring design competition that focuses on Green and sustainable solutions in Asia. As the competition enters its final weeks before closing on 17 February 2023, we encourage participants to browse projects that are in line with the theme and to take a look at past winning entries, which can also serve as inspiration to be further explored in college studios.
As case studies, we presented several projects from Thailand that have been published in FuturArc’s print or online media. Among these were Veil House, Baan Hom Din and PANNAR Sufficiency Economic and Agriculture Learning Center.
This campus tour is running in conjunction with other outreach programmes in the region to collaborate with students, academicians and professionals. If you would like to reach out to the team, shoot us an email at [email protected]!
