Tomorrow 2018 Challenge – Starts!

A new and exciting challenge is about to begin! Tomorrow is back once more and looking for the next star for their Stockholm office, and we decided to do one more challenge here. The best submission will be awarded 2000 Euro cash prize and a well-paid full-time position at Tomorrow with benefits such as social welfare, exercise bonus, field-trips and most of all become a proud Tomorrow team member.

You are invited to participate in Tomorrow’s recruitment process for 2018.

Your Mission

Your assignment is to create an absolutely stunning interpretation of Tham & Videgård´s School of Architecture at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Photos by Åke E:son Lindman.

Arkitekturskolan, Tham Videgård

The exterior image should be shown from eye-level. You are in charge of directing light, shading, composition, design, and story after your own liking. We are looking for artists with
technical problem-solving skills combined with a strong artistic sense. The image should be natural and realistic rather than over-stylized.

This time, a model of the building and surrounding area will be provided for you. To be available starting Wednesday, December 20th, 2017.

We will judge upon creativity, working process, and the final result.

    You forgot to credit the photographer Åke E:son Lindman 🙂
    And I think you mean “benefits” by social welfare?

    Hello Ronen, thanks for the work you do for the community,
    can we change the forme or shape of the building (or some of it), openings, entrances, the stairs, or we have to keep it like it is. ??

      Feel free to be creative. As we wrote in the introduction: We will judge upon creativity, working process, and the final result.

      It is a personal challenge with the intent of placing the winner as a new employee at Tomorrow. That said – if you are not after that, and want to participate in the technical and artistic challenge aspects – then feel free to join in and mention that fact.

    I would also like to participate, if not apply for the job. if there’s a chance for remote work, though, I would be on board with that. are there any software limitations, like max/vray only and such?
    thx!!

  4. Alessandro on Reply

    Hi Ronen!
    Should we think about it like a temporary installation or something more permament?
    Or do we have free hand at all? 🙂
    Thanks!

    I would really like to participate. What file type will the 3D model be? I am currently working with Sketchup 2014, and would like to make sure I am able to download the provided model.

  6. Paulius Dascioras on Reply

    Im in.
    Few questions are:

    Do we get to choose the exterior finish of the building? or do we have to stick to this corroded metal facade?

    Can we add new elements to the site itself? like benches and stuff?

    Best wishes,
    Paulius

    1. TMRW on Reply

      You can change and and add stuff as much as you want. This 3d file that will be live from the 20th shall just be used as a base.

  7. Mile Eror on Reply

    hello. I am excited to join the competition. At this point, as I am new around, I would like to ask,
    are we allowed to change the materials from the original building? Meaning that we can keep the shape of building but have it in completely new light, sort to speak? Using for example wood and metal? Or do we have to keep it as original as it is?
    I know that surroundings can be changed, so I was just wondering if it is same with main building.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,
    It is said that we “are expected to post updates on the Tomorrow 2018 Challenge Section that will go live on the blog by Wednesday, December 20th, 2017″ with a two links provided in. One of this links leads to challange submission, so should it be filled today or by the end of challange?
    And another one ” Tomorrow 2018 challange section ” leads to empty page or only I can’t see what is going on there? Thank you

    Why you do not like SketchUp. Not in the files here have a skp version or in the job offers have a SketchUp filters. I know you will say that you can import models from .obj or .fbx files into sketchup, but the way the files are imported take hours just to make it useable.

      1. Khalmyr on Reply

        Ty. I`m was not trying to be rude in anyways, just to makeclear. lol It`s that as an architect sketchup is a really powerfull tool due to it`s fast response. But, ty for listening my request.

    Hi Ronen,

    just the documentation has to be A4 landscape -right`? Since for now, in this narrow street situation, i’d clearly choose an upright format for my visualization.

    Cheers,
    Moritz

      The brief is short and simple – “The exterior image should be shown from eye-level. You are in charge of directing light, shading, composition, design, and story after your own liking. We are looking for artists with
      technical problem-solving skills combined with a strong artistic sense. The image should be natural and realistic rather than over-styliz”

      And pretty open too 🙂

    hey Ronen,

    hello, I’m trying to register for the competition, but the form returns an error “The password must have a minimum strength of Medium”. I have already tried a bunch of different in my opinion strong passwords that work just fine elsewhere.
    Is that an error or am I doing something wrong?

    1. Alexandre on Reply

      No it’s not. If you try to import from .obj, the file will have a lot of errors. If you have SimLab plugging you can try import from the .fbx file, it’s a lot better but with all triangular faces and not connected faces. All of these methods will let you have a sketchup file, but a model with a lot of problems. Ronen said he will post a .skp file later this week.

    1. Ronen Bekerman on Reply

      Hey… don’t worry. This started on the 20th so you are pretty much at the start. Where were you?! I did post about this all over – email, social media and the blog and job board 😉

      Good Luck 😉

    1. Ronen Bekerman on Reply

      A short text goes a long way helping to understand your goal!

      The final entry will be done as a submission for a job process here on the board. I will send an update once that is open to submitting

  15. raqresende on Reply

    Hey Ronen,
    I can read the name of everyone who posted on the submission page instead of the participant number (when I go check inside each post) -. is it ok? Is the challange that open this time?

  16. Federica on Reply

    Hello, Can we make a vertical view and then just rotate it in to the layout, or we’re required to make only landscape view?

  17. oksannapilipenko on Reply

    Hi Ronen!
    I don’t see where I can attach my PDF when I’m trying to apply for a job.
    I can’t attach PDF to the blog either.

    Thanks!

    1. Ronen Bekerman on Reply

      PDF attachment is being done on your resume. Edit your current resume or make a new one – you can have multiple versions.

      Just edit the resume. Apply for the job picking the relevant resume from the drop list. That’s it!

    1. Ronen Bekerman on Reply

      For this challenge and job application – you need to submit the PDF as described, so add that PDF to your resume instead of what is there now. You can create a new resume version by the way – and use that for the application.

  18. Oleg on Reply

    Hello Ronen, I am not sure if I undersood time shedule correctly. There is a mention “Competition starts December 20th, 2017 and ends January 20th, 2018.” So all proposals should be submitted untill the end of this Saturday, or untill the end of this Friday?

  19. cristianotara on Reply

    Hi Ronen

    i can’t attach PDF when apply for a job and it’s seems to me impossible send update at the dedicated section, it ask always for a new sign in and a wrong password. is there something wrong? can you please explain how to do? thanks

    1. Ronen Bekerman on Reply

      The PDF attachment is to be done on your resume… edit it and replace the PDF you have there with the Challenge one. You can create a new Resume specifically for this submit… which is not a bad idea.
