In this case, cultural tourism is trying to make people aware of the meaning and noble values embodied in traditional Balinese architecture. Although culture is constantly evolving with the times, but the desire to display the Balinese identity through architectural works is considered very necessary.

This year, ACA’s 4th International Design Competition has set out to discover, the layers of the architecture of boundaries. The Competition eagerly awaits your unique narrative of these ‘spaces on edge’ that represent a core transformational condition, theme or an event set in your part of the world. For this you may need to take a deep dive into the inheritance of the ethos you belong to and simultaneously take a leap out of it to embrace the world beyond it. The English musician John Lennon immortalized an imagination of a world free of boundaries, barriers and borders at a time when it seemed like control over them were the only things that could prove supremacy.

An important part of the sustainability conversation, the Architecture 2030 Challenge addresses the energy buildings consume day to day. However, achieving true sustainability means looking at a building’s energy use over an entire lifetime, including the energy consumed in producing the materials used in its construction. Studies have shown that the CO2 emissions embodied in these materials account for 50 to 300 percent of a building’s overall consumption. The numbers are striking, given that minimizing embodied energy can be as simple as substituting materials that produce fewer CO2 emissions or eliminating nonessential components entirely.
