In 2010, Danube University Krems invites tenders for the second “Daylight Spaces” international architecture and design competition. Projects promoting the innovative use of daylight in building planning may be submitted until April 26. Light concepts and the use of natural light are focuses in teaching and research at the university in the field of sustainable building.
The “Daylight Spaces” competition at Danube University Krems is aimed at architects, artists, designers as well as students dealing with tasks relevant to building. Drafts or projects that have already been realized can be submitted. The main emphasis is on the skillful combination of architectural quality and sustainable constructional designs. One of the key components today is the sophisticated usage and integration of natural light.
“When assessing the projects, we pay particular attention to elements such as sustainability, design quality, user requirements and positive effects on the immediate environment. Merging modern architecture and sustainable building structures and the skilful employment of natural light are the top priorities of the teaching and research activities in our department. The submitted projects should follow the same principles”, explained architect DI Gregor Radinger, organizer and member of the jury, who heads the new university course for “Daylight Architecture” at the Department for Building and Environment.
