24/06/2012 by architectural competitions

The program challenges participants to design a NEW National Aeronautics and Space Center (NASC) Tower in the emirate of Dubai to be used as the mission control tower for space shuttle launches and also other observation and discovery missions. The proposed structure should have individual identity and a signature appearance on the Dubai landscape. The proposal should consider the following spaces but participants are free to decide on the ration, size structure of tower and location of the Project: Control’s Technical, Administration and Office, Research, Observation, Social, Circulation, Services, Access.


COMMENTARY:
It is the organiser’s intention for this stage (Stage 1) of the competition to be as design constraints free as possible to allow competitors’ ideas for the chosen site and designs to be as creative and test the boundaries of what is possible. However exciting and challenging the creative opportunity presented within such few parameters may be, it is equally important that any proposal exhibit an amount of functionality and viability.

Standard Registration: $150 US from 19th June 12:00 (GMT) to 20th July 2012 11:59 (GMT)
SUMBMISSION DEADLINE: 04th September 2012
