About the Nordic Built Challenge
This Nordic competition comprises five individual competitions – one in each Nordic country. It is about refurbishing existing buildings in innovative and sustainable ways, while ensuring financial and practical viability. Through the Challenge, the principles of the Nordic Built Charter will come alive.
As the platform of the 2-staged competition stands the Nordic Built Charter – a bold and ambitious document defining 10 core principles for how our future built environment should be constructed.
Stage 1 of each competition will be an open idea competition for general concepts and ideas, with a low barrier to entry and anonymous evaluation. 4 winners from each competition receive NOK 300.000 and the opportunity to compete in stage 2. The proposals in this stage should be realistic and implementable.
The best team in each competition will win the possibility for a contract with the building owner, and a final Nordic winner will be awarded with NOK 1.000.000 for the best overall demonstration of the Nordic Built Charter.
The five buildings are:
Hippostalo, Tampere, Finland
Posthuset, Oslo, Norway
Botkyrkabyggen, Stockholm, Sweden
Høfdabakki, Reykjavik, Iceland
Boligafdelingen Ellebo, Ballerup (Copenhagen), Denmark
Nordic Built is a Nordic initiative to accelerate the development of sustainable building concepts. It is based on the Nordic Built Charter that states 10 fundamental principles for how we want to construct our built environment.
The Charter defines the ambitions and strongholds of the Nordic building sector, and provides a sustainable platform for future building.
