Ibiza, also known as the White Island, is located in the Mediterranean Sea, 79 km from the Iberian Peninsula, forming part of the Balearic Islands (Spain) along with Mallorca, Menorca and Formentera, as well as various smaller islets.
The objective of the Mediterranean Sea Club (MESC) Ibiza competition for students of architecture and young architects is to produce a new leisure model on the fragile and unique coast of this Mediterranean island. The idea is for the MESC to become an alternative to the tourism currently offered by the island, and making it possible to rethink how to occupy the Mediterranean coast.
Its location half way between the coastal line and the ocean-surface, will provide different opportunities for relaxation and leisure activities that will little by little become another attraction for visitors to the island.
Swimming, sunsets, gastronomy, aquatic sports… will be part of what the MESC will offer its visitors.
The proposal must meet the demands and needs of island residents as well as visitors, paying special attention to sustainability and the environment, while allowing visitors to relax and enjoy themselves. The MESC will offer a new public space for recreation, with different possibilities for its use, in which diverse leisure activities can take place. A place that will attract visitors and invite people to swim, take part in aquatic sports, rest or simply socialize. A place where
the unexpected is possible.
This competition is open to international undergraduate and graduate students and recent graduate of architecture or related degrees, individually or in teams made up of a maximum of four (4) members.
Recent graduate means that person graduated within the two (2) years before the competition launching, this is, all graduated in
2013 or later.
