a child's space in the 21st century home

MFI, the UK's leading retailer and manufacturer of kitchens and bedrooms, have launched a second competition in collaboration with the RIBA Competitions Office and RIBA Journal.

The theme for this competition is Room to Grow - A Child's Space in the 21st Century Home and seeks to explore the evolution of a child's room over the years and through each stage of childhood. In line with society's preoccupation with child psychology and emotional well-being the Competition aims to stimulate discussion as to how design may address the requirement's of a child's personal environment.

Entries must be based on an area of 15-20m/sq with a ceiling height not exceeding 2.7 metres, to remain within the context of typical current housing. Competitors will be requested to submit their design proposals on a maximum of two A1 lightwegith foam boards.

Whilst the competition is a call for ideas only, MFI may build the winning designs as part of its exhibition activity and/or may build the winning design to display in stores around the country.

Eligibility: The competition is open internationally to registered architects, interior designers and students of these disciplines.

Jury Panel: The jury panel will include promoter representatives, Amanda Baillieu, Editor RIBA Journal and Seth Stein of Seth Stein Architects acting on behalf of the RIBA.

Prizes: 1st: 4,000; 2nd: 2,000; 3rd: 1,000.
