The 9th edition of the Advanced Architecture Contest has been organized under the title Design for Biocities. On June 5th 2022, the deadline to receive projects was closed, having received 202 proposals from over 50 countries. The organization made a first selection of 130 projects that will appear in the publication made by ACTAR that are detailed here and a second selection with 28 projects that were qualified as finalists.
The first three prizes are awarded with a Master at the IAAC according to their choice and metal prizes according to the contest rules. Given the current global circumstances, the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) will study how to support those participants of the contest, especially the finalists, interested in continuing to research their proposals in the academic environment of the IAAC.
IAAC and all jury members want to thank all participants for their great effort and their contribution in imagining Biocities.
