The Paphos Beach Shelter Competition is open to architects, students of architecture, recent graduates, and associated disciplines from around the world, during the European Capital of Culture – Paphos 2017.

CYSOA is looking to demonstrate designs for a modular canopy system that can be deployed on beaches to provide shelter from the sun (from June – August the average temperature is between 27.7 to 30.4°C). The winning design will be constructed on Geroskipou Municipality Beach, with a view to rolling the design out across other beaches in the area.

The essential programmatic need is to provide a canopy or other form of shelter from the sun, however additional programs, material concerns, and aesthetic results should be decided by individual participants. Entries may be from individuals, or teams of up to 3.
