DECODE - The Space for ARTHITECTURE initiative aims to draw attention to the significance of thought-based creation.

There is a genuine concept behind each groundbreaking artifact, sculpture or building that make an impact. The idea of DECODE was born in order to emphasize the importance of the conceptual planning. BORD Architectural Studio organized a competition for young creatives from the fields of architecture, visual arts and applied arts.

Applicants were invited to introduce an own project from the inspirational phase to the actual implementation focusing on the concept that had to be presented in a media file not longer than three minutes.

A total of 35 entries arrived to the competition: 18 in architectural and 17 in the arts category. The entries were judged by a jury of prestigious professionals. The jury gave one first prize and 2 ‘promising project’ prizes in each category. The total sum of the competition prizes in both categories was a net amount of 800.000 HUF.

The best architectural and artistic designs of the competition were exhibited in the prestigious Faur Zsofi Gallery from 08.11.2018 until 15.11.2018. As part of the programme, we organized a round table discussion titled DECODEing where we talked with our jury members about the creative process looking for new connections of architecture and fine arts.
