Início em 15/10/2017 até 11/01/2018
Welcome to our 8th international ideas and design competition. For this challenge, we invite you to take an architectural safari into one of the wildest, most exciting and beautiful unique corners of Southern Africa: UNESCO’s Matobo National Park in Zimbabwe. In Swahili, the word ‘safari’ means journey, and this is exactly where we want to take you through our competition: a journey into the romance and adventure of the wild, into the customs, local rituals and the beating heart of Africa through your senses. The outcome of this journey? A new super sensory safari lodge concept the likes of which the world has never seen before, nestled in the heart of Matobo’s granite rock formations and mysterious ancient rock paintings. Are you ready to take a safari with us?
Matobo National Park is a small biosphere pocket south of Zimbabwe’s second largest city Bulawayo. It’s famous for its undulating hills riddled with monolithic granite boulders which hold within them fascinating and mysterious caves filled with ancient Bushmen rock paintings. The park is also a sanctuary for the endangered Black and White Rhino population and is, therefore, a key hub in the conservation efforts of this rare animal. Aside from the rhinos, the park is home to a whole variety of African wildlife. All in all, this makes Matobo a magical safari location to dive deep into the natural and cultural wonders this country has to offer.
