ARCASIA Students Architectural Design Competition 2019


The Architects’ Regional Council Asia (ARCASIA) is a Council of the presidents of the National Institutes of Architects of twenty-one Asian countries that are members of ARCASIA. Every alternate year, ARCASIA FORUM is hosted by one of the member countries of ARCASIA. The Institute of Architects Bangladesh (IAB) will host ARCASIA FORUM 20 in November, 2019 with the theme “Architecture in a Changing Landscapes”.

ARCASIA Board has decided to organize a design competition among the individual students of ARCASIA member countries in this FORUM. This ARCASIA Students’ Architectural Design Competition 2019 is organized by the host Institute under the aegis of the ARCASIA Committee for Architectural Education (ACAE).


The objective of the ARCASIA Student Competition is to provide an arena for students from ARCASIA member countries to participate in ARCASIA activities. It is an opportunity for students from different cultures to exchange and share idea on particular design issue that is raised by ARCASIA every year.

Competition Theme

“A Place for Resolution”. We live in a time of many “conflicts”. These conflicts are of varied natures. Some are social, cultural, and religious; some are spatial, territorial; some are environmental and so on.

The student is to identify such a conflict and to design a “Project” that attempts to find a “Resolution”. One should venture beyond the ordinary boundaries of Architecture- not only be aware of one’s surroundings and events but also attempt to seek answers. The project should show us how “an Architect” can bring about a “Resolution” in a “Conflict”, and demonstrate the architect’s role as a thinker, a reformer, an activist, and a visionary. To set a uniform range over scale of the project being designed, students are advised to limit maximum number of users to 500 for the project.


One Gold Award : USD 500 and Certificate

One Silver Award : USD 200 and Certificate

Three Bronze Awards : Each with USD 100 and Certificate

All shortlisted entries will be showcased at ARCASIA FORUM 20. The winners will be offered local hospitality for 2 nights by the ARCASIA FORUM 20 Hosts whereas the airfare will be the responsibility of their respective member institutes.
