FDC International Competition

“I don’t think that Architecture is only about shelter, is only about a very simple enclosure, it should be able to excite you, to calm you, to make you think.”


Africa is poised for a digital transformation, with vast economic opportunities and a youthful population ready to drive innovative and inclusive growth. This digitalization is key to job creation, poverty reduction, and achieving Agenda 2063 and the Sustainable Development Goals. Africa’s rapid adoption of digital solutions offers a unique leapfrogging opportunity, transforming traditional socio-economic sectors at an unprecedented speed. In light of this vision, the AI Competition invites you to design a pavilion for the African Union Headquarters that symbolizes Africa’s journey towards a digitally transformed continent by 2030. This competition is exclusively open to FDC Midjourney Trainees, providing a unique platform to showcase your creativity, innovation, and design skills while contributing to a significant and meaningful project.

1. Participants are invited to envision and design environmentally sustainable and a climate-resilient pavilion, driving the continent’s digital transformation.

2. Participants should use the designated site to create a pavilion resulting from the analysis of the African Union Site Layout and determine the mode of construction that would be appropriate for this project.
