Awards Ceremony 10th jumpthegap® Roca International Design Contest

14 October

The competition has adjusted its rules to recognize those bathroom space projects that contribute to the attainment of the challenges set out in the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. This new approach has opened up the participation of new profiles of architects and designers from all over the world, as evidenced by the high participation levels at a time still marked by the impact of the pandemic.

Among all submitted proposals, the selection committee has chosen a total of 24 projects, six in each of the four categories of the contest:Wellness & health, [Un]neutral design, Water & energy and Crisis & emergency. This committee is made up of representatives of the Roca Design Center and the Roca Global Innovation Hub.

These 24 short-listed projects will be evaluated by a jury of renowned professionals, chaired by the Japanese architect and winner of the Pritzker Prize 2014 Shigeru Ban and which also has Somi Kim, Paul Priestman, Andrea Trimarchi, Simone Farresin, Deborah Seward, Mariana Amatullo, Isabel Roig and Marc Viardot. The jury will choose the winners and runners-up in each category. Finally, the Best of the Best project in this new edition of the competition will be selected among the four winners. 

The winners will be announced at a special gala event that will be held at the Roca Barcelona Gallery on the 14th October in a hybrid format. Along with the online presentation of the awards to the winners, the event will include an on-site round table with the presence of different members of the jury.
