We’re waiting to hear about your architecture projects!
Whether an Architect, Engineer, Artist, Urban Planner, Designer, Student or an Enthusiast, you can contribute to the museum design by submitting an idea for the museum of tomorrow.
A museum in virtual reality, with a universal reach. A museum with the ambition of becoming the most visited museum in less that 2 years! A place to live art. A place to share and meet. A sublime receptacle for creation.
In this era of digital sharing, you are all invited to design a bold and innovative museum – even one that could not exist in real life.
Participation is open to students, architects, designers, urban planners, artists, or anyone with a creative knack and a talent for drawing! Participants are free to compete individually or in teams, where they will pick a “project leader”.
The jury will attribute the prize according to the originality of the design and the quality of the architectural composition. The jury consists of the 4 founding-associates of UMA, one architect, one 3D modeller, one professor of architecture and two experts in museography.
The jury’s decision will be made public after deliberation and a majority vote. The jury’s decision is fina.
UMA will fully collaborate with the winner to finance and give life to the museum of their dreams. The selected design will become the main building of UMA and the first museum in virtual reality: a museum with a universal reach, accessible worldwide.
Collaboration with the winner will take multiple forms. UMA’s 3D modellers and web designers may have to model the building, while the winner will follow the process every step of the way and bring comments and ultimate validation.
