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 three: INTO THE WILD.

 

BRIEF IN SHORT:

The “Remote Work Cabin” is a design competition developed to explore the creative potential of architectural design through one of the most iconic architectural drawings: the axonometric projection.

The aim of the “Remote Work Cabin” competition is to develop one drawing to communicate an architectural design.
Participants are asked to create a design concept around the theme of nature and remote work. This time we challenge our designers to bring people back to nature, by designing a cabin as their ideal workplace in a natural environment. Designers are free to explore in a critical way the different interpretations of such topics, from practical approaches to more dystopian/utopian scenarios. No specific site is given.

This is a competition where 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 project 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 perception.
