A new competition is offering architects around the world the opportunity to propose cutting edge responsible environmental design solutions for the headquarters of FUNDECOR, a Costa Rican NGO dedicated to the preservation of the natural environment.

As an environmentalist institution, FUNDECOR’s new building must be exemplary in green architectural design and construction.

The project will be located on a property in a beautiful rural area in hot, humid Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui in the Caribbean region of Costa Rica.

The jury includes architects Carlos Jiménez, Thomas Spiegelhalter and Mauricio Quiros of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) in Montreal.

Entries commence 18 July 2011. Visit the FUNDECOR website for more information.
