Designed for today's world
A nationwide competition gets underway today as roofing and facades manufacturer Marley Eternit invites architects and specifiers to tweet photos of inspirational buildings that best capture the idea of #designedfortodaysworld. The 25 best images will win a copy of the brilliant ‘100 Contemporary Architects’ book from Taschen.
The competition is part of the wider #designedfortodaysworld campaign being run by Marley Eternit to highlight the contribution its fibre cement slates are making to today’s architecture. The campaign features some of the most striking projects that have used the company’s fibre cement slates, including Westbrook Primary School by Pollard Thomas Edwards and PAD Studio’s Daisy Bank Cottage.
Charlotte Hughes, product manager, comments: "Our fibre cement slates are designed for today’s world because not only do they meet the aesthetic needs of architects but they also have the sustainability, durability and cost effectiveness qualities demanded by today’s challenging construction environment. To highlight this, we want as many architects as possible to send us their photos of residential or commercial projects that they think are #designedfortodaysworld, not necessarily with fibre cement but any design that best captures the concept."
