The Free Mini Challenge


We are asking for applicants to design a piece of vernacular architecture that will be environmentally conscious with a minimal carbon footprint. It should set an example for how architecture can work with the surrounding landscape and benefit areas such as this protected natural park.



Design a meditation place in the impressive setting of El Panta de Sau using only one image. This image will show either:

  • The external building you have designed within this dramatic landscape


  • An interior meditation space that you have imagined with a strong connection to the outside scenery

This one image can be a sketch, visual, render, drawing, painting or photoshopped image, anything that can embody and communicate the essence of your mini design. The design can be any type of structure, i.e. a tent, tree house, shed, floating platform, cave, etc. and made from any local materials; i.e. timber, sand, stone, compacted earth, reeds, etc.




  • Photos and information about the winners will be published on our website and in our printed competition booklet.

  • Free entry into one of our competitions.


  • ALL ENTRIES WILL BE DISPLAYED IN OUR VIRTUAL GALLERY AND PRINTED IN THE SAU COMPETITION BOOKLET. This is a global platform where your work will be visible for thousands of international architects and designers to see.


Submit before the 4th of April 2022.
