Important: The contest has been postponed for November 30th

The city where the Roca One Day Design Challenge originated in the year 2012 hosts the competition for the eighth time. Spain is the cradle of the competition, which is totally consolidated in the country and has become one of the unmissable dates in the design and architecture environments.

Next November 30th Roca One Day Design Challenge will take place in Barcelona, challenging design and architecture students and young professionals under the age of 30 to create original solutions and innovative concepts related to the bathroom space, in just one day.

The competition aims to promote and give visibility to young talent. The participants will face the challenge against the clock of providing solutions for the bathroom space according to the briefing announced early in the morning. Roca One Day Design Challenge in Barcelona counts on renowned professionals as members of the jury, who will value the originality, creativity and feasibility of the ideas presented.

Roca One Day Design Challenge is a design competition organized by Roca, a global reference in bathroom products, which takes place annually in different cities around the world. This year 2019 we will celebrate 15 editions of the contest.

The Roca Barcelona Gallery will, once again, be filled with young designers and architects that wish to test their creativity. Would you like to be one of them? We will soon announce the opening of the registration period!
