The Grjótagjá caves in northern Iceland are home to some of the most beautiful geothermal pools in the world, and were made famous after appearing on Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, excessive tourism is damaging the natural surroundings of this delicate region.
For the Iceland Cave Tower competition, participants are tasked with creating an iconic tower structure at the entrance to the caves which would function as both a landmark and looking point over the breathtaking landscape.
Run in partnership with the landowners of Vogar farmland, this is the fourth in Bee Breeders series of architecture competitions set in Iceland, and the jury are looking for solutions that provide simple amenities, as well as amazing architecture. The structure should include a small visitor center, a café, and a one-person office.
The Iceland Cave Tower competition is open until November 17, 2020, with winners of the 10,000 € prize fund to be announced on March 2, 2021. Winning designs that are eco-friendly in both their construction and operation will be put forward for consideration for construction. Visit icelandtower.beebreeders.com for more information.
