The aim of the “WAR CITIES – Utopian and Dystopian Visions” competition is to develop one image that represents the built environment in a war scenario. The participants are asked to create one image that, going beyond the aesthetic, is able to sharply communicate a strong vision of a war scenario. To do so, designers are asked to envision two scenarios in the same image – half showing a dystopian future, where war is an everyday reality, and the other half a utopian vision, where the world is at constant peace.

As long as architects have been designing buildings, they’ve also been designing the chairs that feature within them. Starchitects like Frank Gehry, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Zaha Hadid and Eero Saarinen, have all designed iconic chairs. In order to have complete control over how users experience their buildings, they have masterfully crafted chairs that complement their design language.

Frank Lloyd Wright once said, “… it is quite impossible to consider the building as one thing, its furnishings another…”. While architecture sets the scene and provides the framework, a chair can have a strong influence on a room’s character. The Barcelona Pavilion is incomplete without the Barcelona Chair and so is the Villa Savoye without the LC4 Chaise Lounge.

The Starchitect’s Chair design competition is looking for the next iconic chair.

Regeneration is the process of replacing or restoring damaged or missing components in a system i.e. spiritual renewal or revival; which can be seen in nature inspiring contemporary artists, architects in their works. For example, the Millennium Dome and the 2012 Olympic Park were developed to stimulate growth and bring back into use vacant, brownfield, and contaminated sites that were seen as holding back the development of their surrounding areas. Such projects contributed in particular to the radical reshaping of East London‘s physical landscape.
