In this week's curated picks of architecture and design competitions listed on Bustler, we are showcasing four briefs calling for warming hut installations in Winnipeg, the best in lighting design, forward-thinking concepts for the forecourt of the Museum of Natural History in Paris, and a new hybrid building type that serves as a model of regenerative design and construction.
The complete list of newly listed competitions can be found here.
Warming Huts V.2024
Registration/Submission Deadline: Tuesday, October 3, 2023
"Three teams will be selected as winners of the WARMING HUTS COMPETITION: Arts + Architecture Competition on Ice from submissions of designs for a warming hut or art installation. Winning entries will be placed along the Nestaweya River Trail located on the Assiniboine and Red rivers in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A jury will select the winning designs based on their creativity in use of materials, providing shelter, poetics of assembly and form, integration with the landscape, and ease of construction."

LA+ EXOTIQUE International Design Ideas Competition
Registration/Submission Deadline: Monday, October 30, 2023
"The LA+ EXOTIQUE design ideas competition asks entrants to design the forecourt of the Museum of Natural History in Paris. The museum was founded in 1793 during the French Revolution, though the site had been used as a royal garden of medicinal plants since 1635. The site is located on the left bank of the River Seine and sits within the Jardins des Plantes, which are 28-hectare grounds that include exterior gardens and a zoo (Ménagerie), with five galleries in the museum precinct: Gallery of Evolution, Gallery of Mineralogy and Geology, Gallery of Botany, Gallery of Paleontology and Comparative Anatomy, and Large Greenhouses (Grandes Serres). All of these could be considered inspiration for your design. The Museum is not just a collection of fossils, it is an active research institution studying the evolution of life on this planet, and its occupants, both human and nonhuman."
2024 Lyceum Fellowship - Re-forming The Anthropocene: A Center For Regenerative Building
Registration/Submission Deadline: Thursday, May 23, 2024
"The 2024 Lyceum Competition explores the potentially regenerative symbiosis between the inevitable growth of human settlement—our buildings and infrastructure, our towns and cities—and the essential health of our terrestrial ecosystem. The program calls for a new, hybrid building type, a 'maker space' that functions as an essential component of a regional economic and ecological metabolism. The building itself will serve as a model of regenerative design and construction. All eligible students are encouraged to participate. The competition is open to architecture students currently enrolled in NAAB or CACB accredited programs in North America. Projects may be completed within a studio setting or independently, however, each entry must represent the work of an individual student."
