We find ourselves in an era of radical transformation in economic, ecological, political and climatic. This prompts us to rethink the notion of ‘basic’, to update the role and performance of architecture in order to be able to keep up with our new lifestyle.
The ASA International design competition 2016 asks you to redefine the word ‘basic’ through an architectural intervention. The choice of program, site, and scale is open. However, they must be clearly defined in each proposal. Each submission must address the following issues: Context – The submission must clearly define the context which the intervention addresses. – The intervention could be specific to one site or it could be a prototype intended for multiple sites. Design – The proposal must be an architectural intervention. – The intervention must address a specific program or a set of programs. – The scale of the intervention must be clearly defined. – There are no restrictions regarding the drawing type or the presentation technique. Project description – All text must be in English. – Maximum of 300 words.
