24H

everest
28th edition

 

FRAMEWORK

The ascent to the summit can take weeks. 

The journey lasts for about 40 days and four camps are used beyond the base. 

The climb is not linear: mountaineers mount the highest camps and return to the comfort of the base to save effort. 

Climbing to the summit can take weeks. It takes patience and waiting for the window of opportunity. 

The mountaineers leave at dawn from Camp 3 for a five-hour climb to Camp 4. 

They rest and take another 12 hours to cover the final 900 meters. 

You have to be on the summit around noon to allow time to return to Camp 4 even during the day. 

You can only enjoy the view for a few minutes ... 

“But when I say that our sport is risky, I do not mean that when we climb the mountains we have a great chance of dying, but that we are surrounded by the dangers that will kill us if we let them.” George Mallory, 1924

 

everest

Earth’s highest mountain above sea level. 

Elevation: 8,848 m (29,029 ft) 

Coordinates: 27° 59’ 9.8340’’ N ; 86° 55’ 21.4428’’ E 

Location: on the border between Tibet and Nepal in the Himalayas in Asia. 

More than 200 frozen dead bodies are lying along the way to the top. 

Mount Everest is known as Chomolungma or Mother Godess of the Land by those who speak the Tibetan language. 

​​

PROGRAM

Theme: base camp

Objective:  

Increasingly, the ascent to Everest became accessible to the less prepared. 

This is due to the improvement of equipment and support teams that exist today to make possible the dream that for many would be impossible. Despite this, every year many die trying, and their bodies rest on the mountain ... 

The goal of this challenge is to design the fixed structures that will support the 5 camps that make up the Everest South Rise, trying to create the conditions for a death on the highest mountain in the world to be a thing of the past ... 

You should consider landscape friendly structures, without much impact on the nature of the site. 

Program:

- Base Camp - Storage for food, oxygen, medicines, clothes, tents, mountaineering material; communal kitchen; garbage collection; memorial to the victims; 

- Camp 1 - shelter with oxygen, medicine, food, climbing material; waste bin for oxygen bottles 

- Camp 2 - shelter with oxygen, medicine, food, climbing material; waste bin for oxygen bottles 

- Camp 3 - shelter with oxygen, medicine, food, climbing material; waste bin for oxygen bottles 

- Camp 4 - shelter with oxygen, medicine, food, climbing material; waste bin for oxygen bottles 

- Summit - waste bin for oxygen bottles which must be cleaned with each descent. 

-other ares that you consider.

Final comments to the winning proposals  - 24H competition 28th edition – everest

"24H competitions are really challenging in terms of testing different lifes, places, conditions and functions in an innovative way. Especially designing in a limited time shows us how any architects can develop urgent or alternative agendas for any type of structure." Berrin Chatzi Chousein, arch

"As rapid technological breakthroughs keep shifting the boundaries of what is believed possible and impossible terrain, so does

architecture need to adapt to new, increasingly extreme environments to create human habitats: oceans, deserts, outer space, the

arctic and antarctic, and certainly also alpine regions. Mt Everest is faced with ever more environmental and infrastructural

challenges, and this competition received an overwhelming response from designers around the world eager to propose solutions to a spectrum of issues." Alexander Walter, arch

"With this contest of ideas, we are forced to reflect on the impact our attitudes have on nature. The challenges, however difficult they may be, fascinate the human being to go further. Excellent opportunity for reflection." Rui Oliveira, arch

1st PLACE - ID0001480:

"The proposed structure is extremely realistic for this composition since its materials applications, implementations, rigidity and and strctural details are clearly expressed. The architectural language of the structure is quite perceivable and distingushable from far away. The proposal entirely proposes a non-standard, dynamic, easily percevable and fresh camping structure that considers all climatic conditions for different weathers. The internal logic of the structure is also very varied, well-thought and elaborated in detail." Berrin Chatzi Chousein, arch                                                                                                     

"Modular proposal very interesting and that offers all the conditions of adaptability necessary in each case with an innovative design that respects the elements." Rui Oliveira, arch

2nd PLACE - ID000690:

"Proposal without a negative impact on the nature and that seeks with the simplicity to offer the conditions of support and meditation necessary to the continuation that the adventurers propose. No one would be indifferent to this silent cry." Rui Oliveira, arch

3nd PLACE - ID0003020:

"Besides its stunning visualizations, this submission impresses with a highly practical, more product design-y angle: a survival toolkit

of ultra-lightweight mobile structures that can increase the chances of making it to the summit and back alive. This entry thinks also

about the spaces in between the camps - shelter between the shelters." Alexander Walter, arch
