HMMD latest architecture competition is set against the beautiful backdrop of the Moroccan city of Casablanca; a city that has seen its fair share of strife and conflict throughout the years.As such this competition is focused on preventing more with a vision to transform the site of a previous act of violence into one that educates and works to eliminate the ignorance that causes such extremist acts.
HMMD are tasking participants with creating ideas for the “Casablanca Bombing Rooms” which main function will be as a public library on the site of the 2003 Casablanca bombings.
A total of $10,000 in prize money will be awarded to three winners when they are announced on 15th of October, with 1st place taking home $6,000; second place taking $3,000 and 3rd place taking $1,000. In addition to this, all winners and honorable mentions will be included in future press releases and featured on the HMMD website and other media publications.
We remind that the competition is open to all (hey our follower students, it’s your turn!). No professional qualification is required.
