0 25

Participants must develop innovative solutions for the bathroom space to address the challenges of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Projects

Following 9 global editions with over 26,000 participants from 150 countries, jumpthegap® returns, inviting the brightest talents in architecture and design to come up with creative solutions for the bathroom space. This 10th edition marks a new stage in the development of Roca’s international design contest, driven by the crucial challenges we face today both as individuals and as a society.
Starting in 2021 and going forward, jumpthegap® will challenge architects and designers from all over the world to create solutions for the bathroom space that address and advance the goals set out by the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. An evolution from the more conceptual and futuristic follows last year’s special edition devoted to the new COVID-19 realities.

“The concept of ‘future’ has changed”, says Marc Viardot, Roca Group’s Corporate Marketing and Design Director. “There are new challenges brought about by the pandemic, while others are of growing and vital importance, such as preserving the planet, supporting its diversity, or fighting inequalities. jumpthegap® has evolved to respond more directly to these issues, searching for ideas that are technologically feasible, provide added value to innovation and show diversity, sustainability, timelessness and adaptability – values which have always been a part of Roca’s DNA”, he adds.
