Floating hotels? Houses under bridges? Plug and play retail? Detachable aircraft pods?! Alternative Transportation? Do you think of crazy (read: ridiculous) ideas but brush them off? DON’T! If you love radical disruptions in the built environment, this project is for you. The Radical Design Project (RDP) is intended to be a collection of innovative ideas that trigger design thinking and, hopefully, generate fresh perspectives for the built environment.

ArcDeck.net is inviting entries for RDP from creatives, students, architects, designers and anyone related to the real estate / building industry. The proposals should include innovative, original, previously unpublished ideas or concepts that might seem impossible but interesting. The intent is to push the envelope and generate design dialogue about design thinking. Note that these are *not* meant for realization.

Show us your creativity! Submit a proposal or project with a topic and site (real or hypothetical) of your choosing anywhere in the world. We’re looking for radical, crazy and downright ridiculous design ideas that challenge the status quo in the built environment. The proposals should be prepared on 1 (one) A1 size sheet in PDF format (landscape orientation) and an optional supporting write-up of maximum 500 words in word document (.doc) format. Do not include any images in the word document. Do not send image files. Use graphics, sketches, 3D renders, picture collages or any other medium you are comfortable with.


Submittal requirement: 

1 (one) A1 size PDF format sheet (landscape orientation) with file size <10 MB


max. 500 word write-up in .doc format (no images in word document)
