Archiol is pleased to announce the third edition of the Aural Architecture design competition, an innovative platform that challenges architects and designers to explore the uncharted territories of architectural design using the sense of sound. This competition seeks to redefine architecture by encouraging participants to harness the power of sound, translating emotions into physical spaces. We invite architects, designers, and creative minds to immerse themselves in the realm of auditory perception, to craft architectural spaces that evoke unique emotions and humanize the spaces enclosed by walls.
The primary objective of the Aural Architecture design competition is to explore the limitless possibilities of architectural design influenced by sound. Participants are expected to:
Listen to one of the four provided music pieces, which serve as the catalyst for inspiration.
Analyze the chosen music piece, extracting and understanding the emotions it conveys.
Translate these emotions into abstract architectural spaces.
Design a structure or installation capable of embodying and depicting the essence of the selected emotion.
Demonstrate your creative prowess in creating architectural spaces influenced by sound.
