  1. PLAYHOUSE Competition Hacking the home to make play part of everyday (a) Competition Overview Play is an essential part of all our lives, whether child or adult. Be it playing sports, a board game or simply sharing jokes with friends, play is just as important to adults as building a den or playing dress-up is to a child. The Coronavirus outbreak has left many of us having to spend extended periods of time at home in lockdown, restricting the opportunity to socialise and play in ways that we are used to. How can we use creativity to encourage play at these unique times? (b) The Brief

  8. Have an industry-changing design approach, research pursuit, product, or technology to share? To celebrate the state of the art—and the processes that made them possible—ARCHITECT invites design firms, manufacturers, researchers, students, startups, and inventors in all building-related disciplines to enter its 14th annual R+D Awards. This distinct program honors advances in architecture at every scale, from novel design and construction solutions to high-performance building systems and details, newfound building typologies, and go-to products and digital tools. Instead of focusing just on th
  9. “Q City Plan · Qinhuangdao International Student Design Competition” can be seen as a new approach to make urban public spaces more intriguing through directly intervening in the small-scale environments instead of large-scale landscape axis, key areas or nodes, in order to complement the insufficient research and design on micro spaces in cities. “Q City Plan” is a new thought of people-oriented humanistic planning through a "trivial-to-grand" mechanism, which is expected to make a remedy for the traditional urban planning of macroscopic narrative. It is a government-initiated activity that i

  11. This is a call for all visionary architects and designers that wish to change the Education in a worldwide scale. Our world urgently needs architectural proposals that foster innovative ideas for the Schools of this Third Millennium.

It is rather a way to use this anniversary as a trampolin

  15. The intent is to involve citizens in urban potentials of the underused and/or abandoned spaces of Winnipeg. Through a community based ideas competition, people will be encouraged to come up with imaginative solutions for the site. There are no limitations to the ideas, and explorative ideas are encouraged. By giving the voice to the community, people are able to take ownership and provide their ideas to a platform that emphasizes a shared collective of ideas. The Alexander Docks have become one of these derelict spaces in which the local community has the opportunity to voice their ideas of ho
  16. VOLUME 39: FOUNDATIONS & DISRUPTIONS Technology is the answer—but what was the question? —Cedric Price Just 20 years ago, Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of the MIT Media Lab, anticipated that the post-information age would remove the limitations of geography. Digital living, he said, would allow transmission of place itself. (1) This prediction that technology would destroy distance and that our physicality would lose relevance did not hold true; rather, it expanded the meaning of physical space by making it more complex and inseparable from its digital dimension. (2) The translation of

  18. This year’s ASA International Design Competition aims to upend the typical associations of vernacular architecture and design. The term ‘VEX’can be approached from a multitude of perspectives, all to challenge, or agitate, the stereotypes of what vernacular should or should not be. One tends to assume that vernacular architecture is in opposition to modern architecture and lifestyle. There is the perception that vernacular is something that is traditional and therefore is considered to be technologically ‘inept’ or ‘crude’. This relegates vernacular design to irrelevance in today’s society a

  20. This is a call for Works of art and design that are also devices for manifesting, registering, materializing, manipulating, or visualizing the quality, movement, properties, or “spirit” of air in, around, and through buildings. Air: the mixture of nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide that serves all forms of terrestrial life; that carries a million other compounds and particles; that we feel on our skins and breathe and smell; that vibrates with sound; that carries birds and planes; that foams water, feeds fires, and fills tires; that moves curtains and removes roofs; that presses in on eve

  24. NYVC Ideas Competition New York is the emblematic city of professional progress, great ambitions and large corporations. A place where the idea of success in society is pursued although in many cases it is accompanied by long working hours. People spend a third of the day or more in workspaces and most offices were designed to increase productivity regardless of the spatial quality or well-being of employees. We propose an ideas competition for a new tower with a mixed-use program in the city of New York. A large hybrid building that generates quality work spaces, temporary housing, cultura
