“Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we’ve been ignorant of their value.” – R. Buckminster Fuller

In a world which has always taken nature for granted and humans have exploited the earth, we as Architects have a major role to play on multiple fronts, to reverse the impending catastrophe. As sensitive professionals, we cannot divorce ourselves from social and environmental exigencies. In the past architects have almost always laid the larger focus on building envelope, active and passive energy systems, pure aesthetics or short-term economics of materials. (more…)

When founded in 1891 by landscape architect Charles Eliot, The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) name was much better understood. The term “reservation” was used by Eliot to describe his own notion of “park-making.” Unlike Frederick Law Olmsted, whose approach to designing parks was to start from scratch, Eliot favored selecting natural or cultural landscapes that had inherent beauty and interest and then improve, preserve, and open them to the public. The Trustees of Reservations is the first private, nonprofit conservation organization of its kind in the country. (more…)

Type: Open

 

“Home” is now at the centre of the pandemic. With the commendation for isolation, quarantine, or lockdown, as a way of battling the virus, most of our lives are expelled from the public realm. It would appear we are now exiled at home. We have all retreated to a home space as much as we can, in whatever way we have configured a home. Even with some gradual relaxation, we are still mostly homebound. Which only makes home a poignant place, and makes us think it anew. Oftentimes, a thing that is closest to us and we take for granted—such as home—appears in a new light when the rhythms around it are altered, disrupted, or heightened. (more…)

BORDERS: Transforming Forgotten Lines

Submission: March 6, 2021

Language: English
Location: Concept
Prizes: Please see details below
Type: Open

 

Borders must be bridges for the humankind, and connections between our civilisations; however, what we have seen during the last decades is something completely different. Borders around the world have become a symbol of conflict, racism, fear, inequity, and division. One single line could divide between opportunity and hope and poverty and oblivion. What if we change that concept through the architecture?

Architecture of the Abandoned

Submission: October 15, 2020
Registration: October 10, 2020
Language: English
Location: Concept
Prizes: Please see details below
Type: Open

 

There are times when we stumble upon an abandoned object which inflicts a profound sense of nostalgia. The mere part of their abandonment, like a lonely of a drift, draws our attention. Merely because each object has a story to tell and gives us a glimpse of a life once lived. There is perhaps a greater sense of emotional value attached to the objects of abandonment and there is a growing impulse to reclassify these forgotten objects as a place that is valuable to the individual.
