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 start from a theme one, a special step in our research program: Living Together.

 

BRIEF IN SHORT:

In this competition we encourage participants to come up with visionary concepts for an alternative public space that embraces today’s challenges – Only 2 drawings, absolute freedom of scale, site or program. Participants are asked to propose conceptual ideas for the public space that will populate our future cities.
Public spaces are an important asset to our cities. They provide people many opportunities to come together and engage with the community. Many consider inclusivity and diversity as a value for public space to be preserved and protected.

Future Public Space is part of the “Cities of Tomorrow” competition series, developed to reimagine urban life through a variety of creative design concepts and ideas. What kind of role can we play as designers in reimagining urban life? How can we produce new inspiring visions to trigger a discussion around alternative models of urban living?

Future Public Space aims to answer those questions with particular focus on future cities and by questioning the nature of public space.
