What is MEDS Studio ?

The aim of MEDS studio is to connect people from the MEDS network and MEDS alumni and give them a platform that allows them to form (international and interdisciplinary) teams and apply for competitions all over the world. This way members of the MEDS family will be able to share their skills and support eachother in their endeavours while getting the MEDS name out in the world.


Concentrico_05 (2018)


Concéntrico 05, the Logroño International Festival of Architecture and Design, seeks to reflect on the urban environment and the city through different formats of architectural and design projects. The next edition will take place on 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30 April and 1 May 2019.

The festival propose two competitions for the creation of a temporary architectural intervention at Plaza Santa Ana and at Viña Lanciano – Bodegas LAN. The period for presentation of proposals will conclude on 27 December 2018 at 1:00 p.m.

Each installation is created by a team of architects and/or designers who make proposals, experiment and explore new fields of design with their environment, thereby establishing a dialogue between heritage and contemporary architecture, which seeks to activate citizens’ reflection on these spaces.

How can I apply for a competition? What do I need?

You will find on the website a Google Sheet where you can fill out your name, surname, country, university, skills, mobile phone number. If more information is needed due to special contest requirements, we will let you know.

Can I apply for a new competition that is not suggested by Meds Studio? How?

Yes of course! You can send your suggestion to our email, then we can post it in order to open the competition to others. Why should I apply through Meds Studio and not by myself? You will be able to help develop the Meds Network. Meds Studio can provide you with team members who are well educated , highly motivated and experienced working as part of a team . We are able to showcase your work on a developed platform for higher multimedia exposure for bigger firms or brands.

Can someone outside of Meds apply for a competition as Meds Studio?

If you are not a Meds member, you can apply but Meds Studio team will check your portfolio and motivation letter in order to analyse your competency. Athough at least one member of the team must be a member of Meds in order to compete.

Where do I meet with people to do group projects in competitions?

It depends on the needs for each team that participate.

It depends on the particular competition. If there is no fee, you do not pay anything. If there is a fee and you are not Meds member you have to pay the fee.
