About the Competition



The purpose and mission of Tongji International Construction Festival is to help participants gain perceptual and rational knowledge of material property, construction mode and process, and comprehending ability of fundamental building fabrication physics through building practice. In the meantime, this competition is designed to promote participants’ basic knowledge of architectural function, dimension of human figures, spatial form and building physics and technology by means of experience activities inside the plastic polypropylene sheet architectural space participants created themselves.


Theme: Micro Community

This year’s theme of construction festival is “Micro Community”.á At the designated time & place, students are required to self construct a temporary and spatial community, and in the meantime spontaneously create a network community that crosses nation, region and cities through information collection. In this process, individuals become the subject and pivot while the whole structure presents itself as a state of multivariate and homogeneity.
