Hello. This is STELSI, the blockchain-based architectural metaverse platform. We’ve prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the contest.

Q0. What is the 1st STELSI International Metaverse Architecture Competition?

You can more information below link.

Q1. Who will be on the competition jury?

Are the awards you mention (Grand Prize, 2nd Prize, Korbit Prize) for all categories combined (which means that several projects can be awarded from a specific category, while in other there might be no awarded projects)? Or those 7 awards + 10 honourable mentions will be given for each category (which means: 42 awards and 60 mentions in total)

The awards for the 1st Stelsi International Metaverse Architecture Competition will be conducted across all categories. We aim to provide opportunities for recognition in a wide range of fields through the judging process. However, it is our principle to prioritize award opportunities for outstanding works.

Q2. Can one person/team submit more than one project?

Thank you for the clarification. Each participant or teams can only submit one entry per land type, and the total capacity for project submissions is as follows:

Commercial projects: Up to 3 submissions allowed (1 entry per land type).
Residential projects: Up to 3 submissions allowed (1 entry per land type). Therefore, each participant or teams can apply to a total of 6 projects. You cannot exceed this limit and submit more projects. Please be mindful of this restriction when selecting your projects. Best of luck with your submissions!

Q3. (if yes) can one person/team submit more than one project in a specific category? (for example 3 different R1 projects)

As mentioned in the “Notice — Submit” section on page 17 of the competition guide, each participant (or team) may submit only one entry per category.

Q4. Can one person/team win more than one award? (assuming submitting multiple projects)

Yes. Participants are indeed permitted to apply to both the Commercial and Residential categories with distinct ideas and content. This allows for the possibility of receiving a maximum of six awards, one for each category, based on the merit of their submissions.

Q5. Is this competition mainly for the external appearance of buildings or we should also consider internal plans and interior design?

As stated in the Evaluation Criteria on page 10, it is crucial to emphasize the diverse potential of space in the metaverse and to address the aesthetic aspects and lifestyle implications. This competition goes beyond mere pursuit of external beauty and instead promotes a comprehensive exploration of design that encompasses functionality, creativity, and meaningful user experiences.

Q6. If we should consider interiors as well, I was wondering if all spaces needed in real residential buildings should also be provided in Metaverse? For example: should Metaverse houses have bathrooms and bedrooms?

As you konw, there are no absolute rules governing the metaverse space.It is anticipated that decisions regarding the metaverse space will be flexibly determined by users and communities, taking into account their understanding of the platform. The suitability of the space for specific purposes will be entrusted to the creativity and expression of the space creators, enabling a broad spectrum of possibilities and interpretations.

Q7. In the R2 and R3 categories: should there be any specific size for apartments? For example 30–100 m2? (which I guess is the size of most apartments in the real world)

Thank you for the clarification. As mentioned before, there are no fixed rules dictating the metaverse space, and decisions regarding its design are expected to be influenced by users and communities, based on their understanding of the platform. The suitability of the space for specific purposes is entrusted to the creativity and expression of the space creators. It is worth noting that the sizes and shapes of the R1/R2/R3/C1/C2/C3 lands vary, as outlined in the competition guidelines. Taking into account the user perspective and the evolving context of the metaverse platform, participants are encouraged to envision and create spaces that appropriately cater to these considerations

Q8. R2 and R3 category: do those buildings need lifts and staircases? (which would be the case in the real world, but I am not sure how it works in the metaverse)

As previously mentioned, there are no rigid rules that govern the metaverse space. It is indeed possible for the functions and forms of real-world facilities to transcend the constraints of time and space, transitioning into a different dimension beyond our real world life. Similarly, the determination of what is suitable in terms of space and facility functionalities will be driven by the dynamic decisions made by users and communities, shaped by their understanding of the platform. The space creators are encouraged to rely on their creativity and expression to design spaces that align with these concepts.

Q9. On page 14 of the brief at the bottom of the page there is written “(3 floors underground)” — does it concern only the last (C3) category or all of them?

The guidelines regarding “3 floors underground” apply to all categories.

Q10. Should the buildings have space for cars/underground garages? (like in the real world)

The response for Q10 remains the same as the answer provided for Q9.

Q11. According to the competition guide PDF file, it seems that there are six types of land use. Do I need to present design plans for all six types, or should I choose one of the six types to present a design plan for?

Thank you for the clarification. In this competition, there are indeed six different land types available, with three land types allocated to each of the Commercial and Residential categories. Participants are required to choose one land type and submit their design proposal specifically for that selected type. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to submit a maximum of six ideas for different categories, allowing for the exploration of multiple concepts within the competition.


STELSI is a Web3-based metaverse project developed based on blockchain technology for construction and real estate industries, such as architectural planning and design, construction, and building management. The first island of the STELSI Project, “hola!”, is planned by a group of experts with unique expertise and know-how in each field, considering community, usage, balance, skyline, and density.

The STELSI project provides a high-quality metaverse space with high rarity and experiential value, where communication between users and architectural experts is achieved based on Unreal Engine.

The ultimate goal of the STELSI is to create a new business area for the metaverse industry through an expanded worldview and community and to make a lifestyle platform that can transcend the experience of a space with strengths in software and content.
