Beltá Frajumar calls on professionals, architects and interior designers of habitat environments to participate in the International Design Competition of Contract Environments, InterCIDEC’21.

Due to the current situation caused by the COVID-19, the common areas of the hotel spaces have evolved rapidly. Transforming these spaces into multi-purpose environments with the capacity to be used for other tasks for which they were not originally created. For example, the lobby of a hotel converted into a coworking room, a classroom where a training session, a showcooking session or a fashion show can be held. An active, exhibition and experiential space where not only the hotel user has access but also the range of clients is broadened to include everyone who has an interest in participating. Spaces that have become social and cultural reference points for the population where they are located due to the interests aroused by their activity.This space should not exceed 500 m2. For the development of the same, each contestant may submit as many proposals as they wish.
If you wish, you can download the indicative map of the space or request it from firstname.lastname@example.org.
