SUMMARY

Our world is changing fast, while ambitions and challenges match in importance. In this context, design can play a huge role. How do we imagine the world to be? What range of possibilities we haven’t discovered yet? What’s a Non Architecture for a World in crisis? In 2020 we started the second phase of competitions to address the issues of tomorrow.

In line with our style we propose 9+1 themes – ten critical topics to work on, but this time they come with a framework to make sure that each theme is explored from different design angles. Rather than a program, a research ecosystem composed of various competitions running in parallel and exploring the same theme from different perspectives.

Our exploration journey will continue with theme two: H2O.

 

BRIEF IN SHORT:

The “72h Axo Battle” is a design competition developed to explore the creative potential of architectural design through one of the most iconic architectural drawings: the axonometric projection. You have 72 hours to develop a proposal that responds to the program contained in the extended contest brief, which will only be available when the battle starts. This Axo battle is titled “….. Water Parks”. The title is only a preview of the complete theme of the competition. More will be explained in the extended brief that will be available on 19th February 2021.

The aim of the “72h Axo Battle” competition is to develop one drawing to communicate an architectural design. The participants are asked to design a building that responds to the requirements of the brief and one axonometric projection to represent it, with absolute freedom of interpretation, technique and level of abstraction. Even the concept of axonometric itself can be questioned in order to craft the most expressive way to represent the design.

This is a competition where the time limit is used to stimulate your creativity. The aim is to present a 72 hours response to the presented challenge, with a very strong focus on building function, creativity, criticality and innovation. Here you develop your skills as a communicator, designer and space thinker.

We are not interested in the construction details, we want to see the space organization. The drawing can highlight functional aspects of the building, showing a deep understanding of one or more design aspects. It can focus on the aesthetic qualities, showing space configuration and specific projects characteristics, or it can only display structural elements and overall massing. The elements shown in the entry are flexible and adaptable to the participants interpretation. The entry is completely flexible and adaptable to the participant’s interpretation.
