THE WORLD AS A SCI FI MOVIE
Mon, May 11, 2020
Welcome to a new world!
And we don’t mean it ironically. We believe in change, in the power of our creativity, and that in times like these there is no greater power. So be inspired by this challenge and dive, as a Sci Fi author would do, into a new world, made by you.
1. WELCOME TO ZOOM SPACE
AARON BETSKY reflects on how space and time are merging into a blur, and how this new fluid dimension is translating into the way we live day by day, physically and digitally.
2. HOW ARCHITECTURE WILL CHANGE AFTER CORONA
As the way we live is changing in unexpected ways, architecture will face new challenges on all levels. How we respond to these challenges will make the difference for the future world to come, and IT’S ALREADY HAPPENING.
3. HOW TO BUILD A CITY FOR A PANDEMIC
Pandemics are thought to become a part of our lives, and urban planning needs to take it into account. Whether with new mobility politics, more green areas, self-sufficiency, building a RESILIENT CITY will be our goal.
4. THE PUBLIC SPACE AT THE HEART OF THE CITY
A Resilient City is a challenge as it is an opportunity. RETHINKING PUBLIC SPACES will likely be at the centre of this evolution, and hopefully reshape our cities for the better.
5. FEEL LIKE STEPPING INTO A SCI FI MOVIE?
Who hasn’t at least once enjoyed a 50’s black&white Sci Fi movie, so cool but also so surreal! Or was it… Designers Plastique Fantastique take the concept of a COVID-19 mask to a whole new level with their ISPHERE.
And now for the practical issues! The Special Registration period for our new competitions, HEALING – ALTERNATIVE DESIGNS FOR QUARANTINE CITIES and SOCIAL DISTANCING HOUSING BLOCK, is closing this week, on may 17th, so hurry up and join! You can also decide to join both competitions at the same time with a 50% discount on the registration fee of the second one.
Let’s change the world!
