Non Architecture seeks to reinvent spatial design by questioning the base, the fundaments and the conventions of an architect’s work. With its international editorial team and a design community of thousands of people, Non Architecture develops initiatives, mediums, and projects to explore innovative design solutions and experimental collaboration models.
Non Architecture is everything that is not architecture, yet.
Also, Non Architecture is concrete. Today it’s a portal for design contests, a community for architects and non architects, an open-source online journal, an independent publisher and a remote design studio.
NON ARCHITECTURE COMPETITIONS – The place for participation
Non Architecture Competitions aim to explore unconventional and uncharted design solutions within the realm of architecture, urban planning and design. From 2016 to 2019, Non Architecture organized a series of 10 competitions with the goal of redefining functional architectural typologies. In 2020, we entered a new phase structured around nine themes. Each theme approaches the big challenges of today’s world from different angles.
During its 6 years in action, Non Architecture Competitions has run 21 competitions, engaged around 8000 participants in 183 countries, accumulated over 3000 design ideas and released curated content in 19 books.
NON ARCHITECTURE JOURNAL – For reading and inspiration
Since 2020, the Non Architecture Journal functions as an open container for engaging Non Architectural content. Within the context of the journal, we share materials from the Non Architecture community and tailored insights from our editorial team.
THE NONAVERSE – The virtual playground for (non) architects
The NONAVERSE is an online community space for everyone who is interested in the Non Architecture Universe. It is a virtual playground for those who wish to engage: to meet and chat with like-minded designers, participate in light-hearted design challenges, ask questions about the ongoing competitions and much more.
NON ARCHITECTURE STUDIO – Tailored for private organisations and institutional clients
The Non Architecture Studio is a department to take on incoming commissions and work on collaborations with external bodies.
