The overall objective is to enhance the Porto Corallo promenade; the stretch from the mouth of the Flumendosa to the beach of Porto Su Tramatzu. This would create a connection which, starting from the upgrading of the existing coastal road, would integrate it with a system of low-impact, low-speed routes (slow ways), thereby allowing for a more sustainable use of beaches and other areas of naturalistic, landscape and cultural interest.

The World’s Fair is a fascinating beast.

It’s an amazing history from Joseph Paxton’s first Palace, to Gustave Eiffel’s Tower, to Mies’ architecture-changing German Pavilion in Barcelona.

Japan and its people have been at the forefront of a digital revolution since the past four or five decades. The country has long existed between two realms. On the one hand, we have the traditional “old world” of temples, tea ceremonies and calligraphic cherry blossoms. On the other hand, there shines a futuristic “new” world of bullet trains, AI dogs, anime pilgrimages, 2.5-dimension theatres, digital currency like J-coin and receptive gaming consoles. Japan has been a place of fascination throughout the years, particularly to those interested in media and popular culture, business, science and technology, and other related areas such as transport and tourism.

GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM NEW YORK

Submission: August 31, 2018
RegistrationAugust 30, 2018
Language: English
Location: New York, USA
Prizes: Please see details below
Type: Open

 

In October 1959, when the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened the doors to its new building on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, it promptly became “the obligatory topic of every New York conversation The last built work by Frank Lloyd Wright, who had died earlier that year at 91, was not showered with praise, as one might now expect, but pelted with criticism. Almost everyone felt that the architecture of the museum dominated the paintings and the art inside. Such was the power of FLW’s architecture. Wright’s building made it socially and culturally acceptable for an architect to design a highly expressive, intensely personal museum. In this sense, almost every museum of our time is a child of the Guggenheim.

Climate change chaos is upon us. Driven mostly by the massive release of carbondioxide from burning fossil fuels, the average temperature of the Earth has risen 1°C. This temperature increase has led to droughts, famine, floods, increased extreme weather events, displacement of thousands of people, the rapid disintegration of ecosystems, and a foreboding promise of mass extinction. Even under painstaking carbon management plans, such as the Paris Agreement, Earth is locked into 3.5°C of warming, enough to collapse every ecosystem upon which our lives depend.
