Competition Cloud is an easy-to-use cloud service to host
building and urban design competitions online.

Design competition practice is an effective method to acquire more sustainable, circular and carbon free multi disciplinary thinking and solutions for our future needs. Lot of complexity and friction of organising a competition can be solved by service design and digitalisation of the process.

We aim to half the effort and time spent on both competition organiser and participator side. This should lead to more competitions with better focused participants and thus eventually to more and better solutions conceived via competitive tendering.
