“Live Your Dream Stop-over Pavilion” Design Contest

The Live Your Dream Team has a wonderful mission: Participating in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017/2018, to give the chronically ill a face. By doing this they link the experiences of the chronically ill with the healthy. By pushing the boundaries, they seek to give the chronically ill a better future with more opportunities in the labour market.


The mission with Link in the Loop

Design a socially and environmentally sustainable Volvo Ocean Race pavilion for the Live Your Dream Team

The stop-over pavilion is used for housing the team, hosting guests and telling the story

Generate as much publicity as possible for Live Your Dream



Students of nine universities from all over the world will be competing by designing the best Volvo Ocean Race stop-over pavilion for the Live Your Dream Team.

Use the power, creativity and innovation of university students.

The winning design will be built and it will travel along with the race.

How will we do this?
