The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and HP are pleased to announce the 3rd Advanced Architecture Contest, on the theme of THE SELF-SUFFICIENT CITY: Envisioning the habitat of the future.
The aim of this architecture competition is to promote on-line discussion and research through which to generate insights and visions, ideas and proposals that help us envisage what the city and the habitat of the 21st century should be like.
The contest is open to architects, planners, designers and artists who want to contribute to progress in making the world more habitable by developing a proposal capable of responding to emerging challenges in areas such as ecology, information technology, socialization and globalization, with a view to enhancing the connected self-sufficiency of our cities.
The programme challenges the participants to design one of these 2 options:
A – Self-sufficient building
B – Self-sufficient city
Trying to define KEY CONCEPTS for the construction of the habitat of the XXI Century, by defining a list of ideas in relation with buildings and the city of the future, to generate a vision of this idealistic possibility. The participants will be free to decide on the size and location of the Project, which must be clearly detailed and justified.
Any time projection short (10 years), medium (50years) or long-term within the duration of the 21st century is allowed.
