Architecture is a unique amalgamation of the nuances of the art world and the pragmatism of the real world; therefore, it has the power to not only capture people’s imaginations, but also to strongly influence their lives.
Participants are required to design an architectural response to an issue that the world is facing – climate change, pandemics, biological warfare, nuclear proliferation, social inequality, etc. Your design doesn’t necessarily have to be a solution. It can also be a visual commentary. Your Architectural Response may fall anywhere on the Utopia – Dystopia spectrum. Remember, reality can be anything you want it to be in this realm.
- Unleash your creativity – Surprise us!
- Be critical – Say something about the world.
- Striking visuals – Capture the imagination of architects and non-architects alike.
- No design is too wild!
