Container City Competition
競賽主題 JIAN ZHU JING SAI QING BAO JU
從好的方面來講，海運集裝箱帶來了無與倫比的模塊化，極大地促進了貿易，是建造行業曾經忽視的方面。不管我們有多需要定製化，城市生活在很多方面都在推動模塊化建設，至少在空間規劃方面（ 如公寓等 ）。在住房需求增長如此之高、時間緊迫的情況下，模塊化是不可避免的。同時，航運集裝箱也帶來了頻繁廢棄產生廢物的不利影響。拆除它們的成本很高，因此尋找替代用途是解決過剩廢物產生的一個很好的方法。同時降低設計項目的建設成本。作為建築師，我們如何利用這些優勢為我們的人民提供更好的居住地？
房租上漲和生活質量下降是城市面臨的一個巨大問題。地價（ 不可能改變 ）或施工成本（ 可以通過各種策略降低 ）和模塊化施工可能是唯一已知的方法可以改進這些問題，成本不僅可以通過更快的建設來抵消，而且可以因更快的製造時間來幫助。港口城市的集裝箱可以作為來探索製造住房，特別是在密集的城市地區。
競賽挑戰 JIAN ZHU JING SAI QING BAO JU
競賽的要求是設計一個由15個集裝箱組成的學生。基於宿舍空間設計的要求，我們想要探尋理想的航運集裝箱設置究竟可以容納多少人。請注意，你的方案概念設計必須主要由集裝箱構成。如果你想由其他材料（ 如木材，鋼，混凝土 ）等建造一些附加結構，你可以這樣做，但只限於15個集裝箱表面積的15%。容器的尺寸可以是40′x 8′x 8′6〃和20′x 8′8′6〃中的任何一種。你的設計可以包括底座、柱或其他材質的框架。

Container City Competition
The trade & commerce across the works are bustling despite the pandemic push. The innovation of shipping containers is somehow the only way cross border trade happens especially in the case of waterways. Trade previously had been much organic package sizes, but now the size definitions help not the only manufacturer to anticipate their capacity and cost, but it has boosted logistical speeds tremendously.
There are some great things especially when we see in the context of this breakthrough in freight delivery. But at the same time, it brings a lot of this waste because of the decaying of these containers due to loss in serviceability and use. There are especially two key takeaways in this story, emphasizing two sides of the shipping container story. Let’s look at them objectively.
Starting with the good side, shipping containers bring modularity that is unparallelled which has boosted trade largely. A quality that the construction industry has severely ignored in the past. No matter how much we demand customization, urban living pushes for modular construction in a lot of ways at least in spatial planning (eg. Apartments, Condos). The quality of modularity is unavoidable when the rise in housing demand is so high and time is crucial.
At the same time, shipping containers bring a downside of generating waste by frequent decommissioning. They are costly to dismantle hence finding alternative uses is a great way to address the excess waste generation. At the same time bringing down construction costs for design projects. How can we use these qualities to our advantage to deliver better habitats to our people as architects?
Rising rents in urban areas and shrinking the quality of living is a huge problem urban areas face. The biggest components of this cost are – 1. Land Prices (Which are impossible to change) or 2. Construction cost (Which can be brought down through various strategies)
And modular construction may be the only known way that can do it.
The prices can not only be offset by faster construction but quicker making times as well. This is the biggest reason, despite the availability of containers on a port city, it can be a point to explore manufactured housing as a concept especially for dense urban areas.
The design brief is to design a student housing concept made of 15 shipping containers. Devise the spaces and the requirements based on how many people ideally can this shipping container setup can fit. Please note the housing concept has to be made out of shipping containers primarily. If you wish to create extensions, canopies bridges, made of other materials (Like timber, steel, concrete) you may do that, but only limited to 15% of the surface area of these 15 containers only. The size of the container can any of the two 40′ x 8′ x 8’6″ and 20′ x 8′ x 8’6″. You can include plinths, columns or framework made of other materials.
The container setup will be placed on vacant land leased for a certain duration or deck on the water like the Urban Rigger – by BIG or on a structural grid to keep land below accessible for other use – to mitigate the rising land cost. Space efficiency matters the most, hence effective utilization of inside and outside spaces is a must. Please note no more than 4 containers can be stacked on top of each other. They are designed only for laying horizontally.
- Quality of Living: How can we deliver a better quality of living in such constrained structural and spatial limitations.
- Spaces: How well indoors and outdoors are managed with access equitably distributed to this rental student housing.
- Container Utility: With limitations, there are some strengths to using containers, how well the design utilizes these strengths.
- Replicability: How well the design (interiors and exteriors) can be replicated across different conditions and places?
The site is kept modular and unrestrained for this challenge. With their submission participants will require to submit their footprint area of the space they are required based on their design. This will compare space efficiency with quality of living. There can be secondary structural elements added to the design for resilience.
- Minimum eligible age for participation is 18 years.
- There is no restriction on the degree of design disciplines to participate in the challenge.
- Participation in the competition can happen in a team as well as an individual.

The proof of identity should clearly state that you were enrolled in the institution at the time of registration. You may also produce a bonafide/authorized certificate from the institution as proof of identity.
- All the participants who do not belong to the student category will be considered as a professional.
- Institutional access is a program for students only if they are participating in the competition as a group of 20 people and want to submit 5-20 entries together. Institutional access has to be done under the guidance of a mentor/professor.
- Students are allowed to involve one mentor/professor/guide in their team provided the mentor has been authorized via a bonafide certificate of the University.

This competition contains additional resources that contain a set of files useful to complete the competition submission. This folder is made available on your profile dashboard automatically as soon as you register.
This additional resources folder of this competition contains: Submission Format files in PSD | AI | InDD & Guide to Journal Section + Questions
JUDGING CRITERIA & JUDGES
The entries will be judged by an international jury of the competition on the following criteria:
Presentation: The fundamental to a good entry is a visual delivery of ideas.
Concept/Idea: Quality of thought and intent in the pre-design phase.
Spaces/Programme: How the spaces are calculated and ordered.
Design Outcome The final architectural outcome of the solution.
The judging panel can also add other criteria based on their internal discussions – which will be in line with the problem statement. Participants are advised to fulfil above given criteria first in their design. Names of the jury panel will be announced soon.
HOW TO SUBMIT
Read all the competition rules and details from the sidebar, and hit register. You can pay the entry fee and book your registration right away. The additional resources directly unlock as soon as you register on your dashboard.
Once you are ready with your project – begin uploading from the dashboard and follow this tutorial to submit. You can add your team members to your project while submitting.
- People’s Choice Award is applicable to all the participants.
- The People’s choice award will be given on the basis of a project (in either student or professional category as per the award list) with most votes.
- You can begin receiving votes on the project as soon as you upload your entry.
- The voting will close as per the date mentioned in the schedule of the competition page. Any votes coming after this date/time will be not counted in the final calculation.
- You can share your project on social media/messaging platforms apart from UNI as well.
- Creating fraudulent/fake/bot/impersonating accounts to increase public votes will be considered as unfair means and may lead to disqualification with a notice.
AWARDS & FEES
The fee to participate grows based on the number of registrations received. Similarly, the prize money proportionally grows with rising participating entries. A total of 500 entries will be accepted in the competition till the last deadline. If the competition reaches a total registered entry of 500, then the participation process will be closed at a total prize pool of 18,000 USD.
This implies, the sooner you register, the less you will pay as fees. The number of teams you will compete with, the higher the amount of prize you will be entitled to receive.

- 竞赛报名 | 集装箱城市尽管新冠肺炎大流行对世界产生巨大影响，工厂的贸易仍然很繁忙。在某种程度上，创新的集装箱运输是跨境贸易的唯一途径，尤其是在水路运输方面。以前的贸易运输包装尺寸相对随机，但现在尺寸定义不仅帮助制造商预测其产能和成本，而且大大提高了物流速度。但同时，由于这些容器在使用方面损耗，这些容器的废弃也带来了大量的浪费。这个竞赛提到了两个要点，强调了集装箱运输的两面性，需要我们客观地看待它们。 竞赛主题 JIAN ZHU JING SAI QING BAO JU 从好的方面来讲，海运集装箱带来了无与伦比的模块化，极大地促进了贸易，是建造行业曾经忽视的方面。不管我们有多需要定制化，城市生活在很多方面都在推动模块化建设，至少在空间规划方面（ 如公寓等 ）。
