Based on the risky climbs that many have attempted at Mount Everest, the 24H Competition “Everest” edition challenged entrants to design a series of fixed structures that support the five camps of the Everest South Rise. The structures had to be able to withstand Everest's harsh environment, while also leaving little impact on the natural landscape. Like previous 24H Competitions, entrants only had 24 hours to design and submit their proposals.
In the end, the five-member jury — which included Archinect and Bustler's Alexander Walter! — selected three winners and seven honorable mentions. Check out the winning submissions and some jury comments below.
1st place - Team: Jiaqi Wang, Wanzhu Jiang, Pinwen Zhang, Qiuyu Li | City: Xiamen | Country: China
"The proposed structure is extremely realistic for this composition since its materials applications, implementations, rigidity and and structural details are clearly expressed. The architectural language of the structure is quite perceivable and distinguishable from far away. The proposal entirely proposes a nonstandard, dynamic, easily perceivable and fresh camping structure that considers all climatic conditions for different weathers. The internal logic of the structure is also very varied, well-thought and elaborated in detail." — Berrin Chatzi Chousein
"Modular proposal very interesting and that offers all the conditions of adaptability necessary in each case with an innovative design that respects the elements." — Rui Oliveira
2nd place - Team: Brice Franquesa, Julien Marie, Victor Didier. | City: Annecy | Country: France
"Proposal without a negative impact on the nature and that seeks with the simplicity to offer the conditions of support and meditation necessary to the continuation that the adventurers propose. No one would be indifferent to this silent cry." — Rui Oliveira
3rd place - Team: Nikita Werth, Bulat Kalimullin, Samat Sungatullin. | City: Kazan | Country: Russian Federation
"Besides its stunning visualizations, this submission impresses with a highly practical, more product design-y angle: a survival toolkit of ultra-lightweight mobile structures that can increase the chances of making it to the summit and back alive. This entry thinks also about the spaces in between the camps - shelter between the shelters." — Alexander Walter
