FAQ 48H FLOORPLAN BATTLE - Non Architecture
I have just registered but I can not find my submission code. How do I solve it?

Within 24 hours from the registration, you will receive a confirmation email. This email is going to contain a 5-digit order number (i.e. #12345, #98765, etc.) which is the code you have to use to submit your project. In case you can not find the email, log in here with the email you used to register and you will be able to see your order number. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT WHEN YOU SUBMIT, YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE “#” AND USE THE NUMBERS ONLY. 

How do I add the other team member's info?

You will be able to fill the team information during the submission process. We do not ask to specify the whole team during the registration, just in case the members happen to change during the design process.

PayPal does not work in my Country. How do I register?

If you don’t have PayPal, please try to ask a friend, a relative or anybody who you can trust with this and lives in a different country, to purchase the entry for you. If you can’t resolve the payment, please contact us at info@nonarchitecture.eu, including which competition are you referring to.

I don't live in Europe, can I still participate?

Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually.

I am not a student, can I still participate?

Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually.

I registered to the competition, but I will not be able to submit. Is it possible to get a refund?

Unfortunately, no. The registration fee to all Non Architecture Competitions is non-refundable.

Can I re-use a pre-existing project?

The design task in case of the 48H Floorplan Battle is very specific and the chance that you have done the same exact design before is very low. If you worked on something similar in the past, you are free to use it as a base to your best consideration.

Can I submit PDFs or other formats instead of JPGs and DOCs?

Due to the amount of time required to fix wrong submissions, Non Architecture will NO LONGER accept PDFs submissions. The folder to be submitted must contain  ONE JPG image and ONE DOC file only.

Can I submit a .RAR instead of a .ZIP?

Due to the complications while handling .RAR files, we are only able to process submissions in the correct .ZIP format.

Is it possible to submit a video or a gif?

You are not allowed to include any videos or gifs in the submission folder. You are free to add links to videos or gifs in the description DOC file. These links will be not seen and evaluated by the jurors but can be included in case the project will be published on the website.

My design doesn't fit on the A3 image. Can I submit two images?

No, you can only submit one image. If your design respects the design requirements given in the extended competition brief, it should fit the A3 size. We recommend you to go back and revise the design requirements.

Can I use other colours besides the ones given in the competition brief?

No, the only colours you can use are the 5 colours assigned in the competition brief. You are free to change the opacity for more variety.

I'm encountering problems with setting up the colours assigned in the brief. What should I do?

Non Architecture supports challenging conformities and exploring new ways both in design and presentation and for this reason we highly recommend to use the colour theme assigned in the competition brief instead of submitting a traditional black and white floorplan. In case you are unable to set the colour theme, you can still submit a black and white image as a solution.  

Is it possible to include other presentation elements besides the floorplan?

In case of the 48H Floorplan Battle, creating the floorplan is the primary task. If you have access time to add something more and space on your A3 sheet to fit it, you are free to add schemes, details, etc.

Do I need a project title?

Yes, you need to give a title to your project.

Do I need a team name?

No, you don’t need a team name.

How should I name the submission files?

Please refer to the competition brief, it includes a detailed guide with examples regarding the submission requirements.

Can I send my submission in an email?

No, you can only submit your project through the submission form, that is placed on the bottom of the corresponding competition page. The submission form is going to be available during the 48 hours while the competition lasts.
