Eco-Cult | Ecologically inclined cultural centre

About Competition

The brief for the competition “Eco-Cult” is to design a cultural center that is built in response to the climate in the region and will function as a space for the promotion of local talent and culture.

Culture in every region is unique and revival of the symbiotic relationship between culture and nature will pave the path to achieve balance in the environment.

A cultural center consists of multi-functional spaces that can be used for education, performance, or exhibit purposes. Its varied use will make it a popular public destination. The form and spatial design of the structure must be a representation of the local culture and tradition.

The aim of the design is to create a design that is context-driven. It must be accessible to all citizens. An integrated approach must be taken to create an efficient and resilient structure, physically and socially. The structure must be open and approachable.


  • Climate Resilience – The constraints of the site must be taken into consideration. The design must adapt and resolve any environmental issues faced by the site.
  • Materials – Material selection must be done keeping in mind the local context. The materials selected must not have any adverse impact on the site environment.
  • Life cycle – The life cycle of the material and construction must be well-planned, anticipating the changing environmental conditions of the site.
  • Context – The design must respond to the (existing) site conditions. The wider socio-cultural, economic, and environmental settings are to be considered in the design approach.
  • Sustainable – Reduce the negative impact of design on the environment, by improving building performance, reducing waste, and ensuring comfort for occupants.

About the Organizer

Unfuse serves as a unit for Uni in the field of Architecture. It intends to break the fusion of traditional design barriers and methodologies by making it a platform for experimentation and conceptual exchange of ideas in architecture, urbanism, society, culture, and ecology. It is a research initiative dedicated to providing opportunities for designers from all domains to explore ideas that go beyond the boundaries of architectural discipline and enrich our built environment; thereby opening up possibilities for the promotion of architectural thought at a global level.
