  1. Interesting competition. However, it is very difficult to imagine a building with no relation to the space/country/ existing surroundings…moreover, would it be possible to further specify “social/humanitarian”? There are sooo many things one can conceive following this issue..
    Thanks for your attention

    • In our opinion the building can still have a clear identity, but will likely become an intrinsic part of the landscape over time. A building could be initially very informed by it’s surroundings, but over time as these surroundings change or adapt the building remains intact, creating a legible reminder of the past and in turn informing it’s surroundings.

      As for “social/humanitarian”- we are passionate about how creativity can be used for humanity, and we are keen that this competition doesn’t just invite an immortal architectural “monument”. Social/Humanitarian can be interpreted in a wide way, but the intention is that you aim to alleviate some sort of inequality or social depravation through your design.

    Is there some pdf with the rules or competition brief? Or just the info provided here?
    What are the special social needs mentioned above? Thanks

    • The information above is the full competition brief.

      As for ‘special social needs’- we are passionate about how creativity can be used for humanity, and we are keen that this competition doesn’t just invite an immortal architectural “monument”.

It is your choice to identify or invent a particular purpose.

      Thanks

    Does the design have to be a building? Could installations or landscapes, like memorials or gardens, be accepted? And one more question: is the competition only for individuals, or open to groups? Thanks!

    The only thing I would say about the entries is the fact that not many of them stick to the criteria.

    I know it is essential as a creative that we break the boundaries, but when there is a 100 word limit, and people go over it, sometimes by 4x the allowed amount, it leaves people a little bit bitter who spent time and effort getting their schemes down to 100 words.

    Also schemes who explain their projects in several/many diagramatic drawings surely cannot rely on ‘one image’ to sell their entire scheme, and for that reason are weak projects.

    All that said, I thoroughly enjoyed the brief and will definitely be signing up in the future.

    Thank you tesseract
