8th Roca International Design Contest

Einreichfrist: 25. April 2019
We consider Jump The Gap to be an interesting opportunity for students and designers because it opens a discussion about all aspects of bathing for the near future.
It seeks ideas for the many possibilities of the everyday human relationship with water, specifically related to all aspects of hygiene and well-being.
Universities and design schools are invited to take part in the discussion by encouraging students to design proposals that respond to issues around the human relationship with water.
The key issues that participants are invited to consider are:
•    The sustainable use of water
•    New concepts for human relationships with water
•    Universal access
•    New materials and technologies
Jump The Gap offers a 10,000€ award for each of the categories: professional and student.
The We Are Water Foundation offers an additional 6,000€ award to the project that best encompasses its philosophy.
The We Are Water Foundation aims to promote a new water culture that allows the sustainable management of water resources around the world and guarantees the universal human right to access to the water and sanitation needed for a dignified and healthy life.
Entries will be judged by an international jury presided over by Ruy Ohtake, Architect and teacher at Sao Paulo School of Architecture and Urbanism, and Javier Torras, director of We Are Water Foundation Spain.
Finalists and winners will be invited to the Awards Ceremony that will be held at the Disseny Hub in Barcelona.
