competition brief

In 2021, Indonesia will host the prestigious motorcycle race Moto GP for the first time. This world-class motor racing event will be held on a new circuit in the Mandalika Special Economic Zone on the island of Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.


Currently, Lombok lacks enough places for tourists to stay. Over 60,000 more hotel rooms are estimated by the government to be needed for this event. However, community members can build prefab glamping areas around remote villages using locally available materials. Prefab Glamping Villa is an open-ideas competition to prepare pleasant temporary living areas for the touristswho will watch moto GP racing. 


The Prefab glamping villas must be easy to build and dismantle and use as much local material as possible. The villas will be built one to two hours away from the circuit. Each villa should be 30–60 m2and able to be easily arranged in groups of 10–15 villas to becomeone composition with public spaces around it. Participants can choose from sites located in a hilly area, in the countryside near a river, or near the beach.


As this is an open-ideas competition, participants in the prefab Glamping Villa 2020 Challenge may interpret the competition brief in their own ways and choose the most creative way to fulfill its goals. This is an opportunity for architecture enthusiasts to rewrite the definition of temporary living on the island of the modern and digital society.
