The aim of the “Spacecraft Design” competition is to develop one drawing to communicate a conceptual design. The participants are asked to design a vehicle that responds to the requirements of the brief and one axonometric projection to represent it, with absolute freedom of interpretation, technique and level of abstraction. Even the concept of axonometric itself can be questioned in order to craft the most expressive way to represent the design.

Participants of this competition are asked to create a design concept for a space-ship. This time we challenge all designers to imagine and design the shape of a futuristic vehicle for space travel: a Spacecraft. Being the main topic about mobility in space, designers are free to decide if they want to focus their proposal exclusively on external design or in the internal design of the vehicle. Presented concepts are free to explore in a critical way the different interpretations of such topic, from practical approaches to more dystopian/utopian scenarios.

Space travel is getting real and in the future will be all about experience. The further we might travel, the longest we will be living a spaceship as an actual domestic space. That calls for some architectural design. What could space transportation of the future look like? What could the complete user experience for space travel be?

Submission can address some of these questions. The proposal submitted could be a device, a space shuttle, a capsule or something completely different. The program dimensions are not given, and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their design. There is only one fixed parameter: the proposal must provide a means of transportation in space. See below in the full brief the presentation requirements for more details.
