Architecture defines human’s relationship with the environment. Early dwellings sheltered human from dangers and discomforts and provided a place for tools, livestock, and even intangible entities such as spirits.

Putting human’s needs as the center of architecture is natural. However, amidst the ongoing environmental crisis, we are inevitably urged to reexamine the way we live and build. How can we include other lives in the total ecosystem into the manmade environment? ASA Experimental Design Competition invites all participants to investigate how architecture can embrace the complexities of environmental conditions that includes all livings, not only human.

Programs & Content
This experimental one-stage architecture idea competition invites all architects and other disciplines, both professional and students to submit compelling proposals without the constraint of scale, typology, program or site. Participants are encouraged to be as creative as possible. Proposals are open to diverse narratives that encourage rethinking of ways in which we can co-exist with other species, elements, things and beings.
