‘Warwick Junction’, a unique location within central Durban, is the site for the
international competition open to architecture students worldwide, launched as part of the
next UIA congress in South Africa (3-7 August 2014). This transport node is a place for
exchange and informal commerce with unique qualities at an unprecedented scale.
Based on the congress theme ‘Architecture Otherwhere’, the aim of the competition is to
highlight the complex ecology of Warwick Junction and its economic, social and cultural
dynamic by proposing solutions that will be to the benefit and well being of the community
and the half a million people who frequent this area every day. Projects must propose three
visions simultaneously: a long term - large scale solution; medium term - medium scale
solution; an immediate small scale intervention.
