BAMB Reversible Design Competition



BAMB welcomes students of architecture and engineering to participate in the “BAMB’s Reversible design competition”.

Using BAMB’s materials passports’ platform and BAMB´s reversible design guidelines and protocol, the competition invites students to release their ideas and innovative plans to design a reversible building that has flexibility and transformation capacity to change its function by time according to the changeable needs in order to embrace three temporary functions: commercial, residential and services.

The main goal of the competition is to twist the visions of young professionals-to-be towards the circular economy concepts in the building sector, its new opportunities and applications.

To participate, all INDIVIDUALS or TEAMS must register by completing and submitting the registration form in the BAMB webpage, see further down at the page.

STUDENTS of architecture, engineering (civil, structural…) are invited to submit their proposals individually or in teams up to 3 persons.
