Trimo Urban Crash
Trimo Urban Crash is an international architectural competition. Its purpose is to challenge students of architecture to bold architectural planning and the creative transformation of the urban environment. Students are encouraged to use advanced materials and construction technologies. The best works are selected by an international jury and visitors to the official web page.
