-HONOURABLE MENTION of Non Architecture Award Competition | Category: Aspatial


Heila is a proposal of a pavilion that combines a leisure function with technology and material manifestation.

The project brings forward a subject of healing places when one can find peace of mind not only because of the physical frame of an area but also because of nature-oriented healing outcomes, articulated by organic materials from which it is constructed. Places where material solutions and their regenerative functions have the potential to bring us closer to life science, material science, therefore the future, and create a more coherent relationship with natural processes.

In essence, the animate and inanimate matter is no longer divided by walls and ceilings but rather integrated and enhanced in order to align built and living structures for improved function.


Project Type:

Conceptual design research project

The proposal falls into the following priority area(s) : material design research for temprorary bio-structure, new technologies for 3d printing manufacture techniques, biofabrication 


Jury Comments

– Hidden Architecture

The project approaches the important issue of mental health with suggestive images. The project successfully proposes an ecological and biophilic environment to deal with that connects architecture and nature.


– Mariana Cabugueira

This project got me at ‘’Designing with Hope’’. A rare design approach in current days. Its healing ambition, peaceful design, and the outcome, inspires me as an architectural designer. ‘’Regenerative functions’’ are a provocative and innovative aspiration for architecture. I do believe it should become a mandatory criteria for the architecture of the present and future. Congratulations for this. I wanted to feel surprised, your projected surprised me the most amongst all submissions.
