The pre-selection committee made up of representatives of the Roca Design Centre and the Roca Global Innovation Hub have done the pre-selection of the projects.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, Roca has decided to launch a special edition of its international design competition jumpthegap®, this time focused on proposing new products or services related to the functions of the bathroom space, such as sanitation, hygiene, and wellbeing, but that could now be required in so many spaces, public or private, in a covid scenario.
Ruy Ohtake, president of the jury, gave a jumpthegap® (talk) on the relationship of architecture and design in his projects.
- With over 5,000 registered participants from 137 countries, jumpthegap® consolidates as one of the most internationally renowned design competitions.
You can find below the list with the names of the 8 finalist projects of the Professional and Student categories and the 4 finalists of the Special We Are Water Foundation Prize 2019. Congratulations to their authors!
