We can consider “Architecture” everything that has already been designed and/or built. That would define a
realm of conventional solutions, often repeated in a self-referential system. We imagined a counterpart, a
“Non architecture”. A world of unexplored designs and countless possibilities, that if found, could enlarge and
change the boundaries of Architecture permanently. A universe of chances and opportunities never
challenged by architects before. A limitless field of investigation that includes everything that is not
Architecture, yet.

NON ARCHITECTURE BLOG
OPEN SOURCE
Non Architecture Blog is a platform for free exchange of content and inputs. Members from the Non
Architecture community share articles, essays, projects and visuals in an ongoing discussion on various
topics related to the future of architecture.

COMPETITIONS AS A TOOL FOR RESEARCH

For Non Architecture competitions are much more than just an architectural exercise, they are a valuable tool to challenge and involve talented designers from all around the world into a collective research.

The most interesting submissions of each competition are in fact collected into a book, and enriched with essays and graphic materials from our community. As a result, each book becomes a vehicle of a Non Architectural perspective on each specific topic, and a condensed version of our open source research on the topic investigated.

If you want to learn more about our vision you can check out here the introduction to our first non architecture book: “Ce n’est pas architecture – This is not architecture”

 

NON PROFIT NON ARCHITECTURE

Non Architecture, differently than most of competition platforms, is part of a non-profit organisation. Its only purpose is to encourage and support the creation of brave innovative ideas.

All the funding raised by the platform are used to promote and support those ideas with new projects and initiatives.

If you are interested in collaborating or supporting Non Architecture you can contact us at info@nonarchitecture.eu
