Following 9 global editions with over 26,000 participants from 150 countries, jumpthegap returns, inviting the brightest talents in architecture and design to come up with creative solutions for the bathroom space. This 10th edition marks a new stage in the development of Roca’s international design contest, driven by the crucial challenges we face today both as individuals and as a society.
Starting in 2021 and going forward, jumpthegap will challenge architects and designers from all over the world to create solutions for the bathroom space that address and advance the goals set out by the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. An evolution from the more conceptual and futuristic approach of previous editions with a bigger emphasis on issues that need immediate reaction, and which follows last year’s special edition devoted to the new COVID-19 realities.
The competition, which is organised by Roca in collaboration with BcD Barcelona Design centre, is now divided into four new categories: Wellness & Health, [Un]neutral design, Water & Energy, Crisis & Emergency.
The projects will be assessed by a jury of renowned professionals led by Japanese architect and 2014 Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban.
There is no entry fee.
Open to professionals and students from the disciplines of architecture, design and any related field, of legal age from every country in the world.
The winners will be revealed in a virtual ceremony on 6 July, where there will be a total of 13 prizes awarded: four prizes of 2,000 EUR for the winner of each category, eight prizes of 500 EUR for the 1st and 2nd runner up of each category, and a grand prize of 5,000 EUR for the ‘Best of the Best’ project, selected from the four winners.
Deadline: September 6, 2021
