We believe that architects and designers possess the necessary tools and skill set to formulate comprehensive design concepts that have the innate capabilities to help adapt to an issue that is both, multifaceted and enormous.

We invite architects, designers, engineers, teachers, thinkers, students and everyone who can imagine a Utopian Aquatic World for the future humans to live in. The participants should focus on creating solutions that enable people to live safely and adapt comfortably to the impending climate change, thus securing living spaces for our future generations.

The competition challenges the participants to create futuristic, water-based habitat for humans to prosper and thrive on this aquatic/amphibian Home that is flood resilient.

The participants are to design an aquatic/ amphibian Home that can house 20 individuals with spaces to live in (sleep, rest, sanitize, work and interact). The spaces in the program can support the following:

  • Relaxation
  • Interaction
  • Food Generation
  • Food Storage
  • Water and Energy Generation

The participants are free to think and create their own spaces as a part of the program for the challenge.

The aquatic/amphibian dwelling should be self-sustainable, environmentally sound and should be able to survive the harshest seas and weathers of the world.

The dwelling can be movable by itself or can use an external agent for changing its location around the world.

The participants are to design thinking of a utopian future for humanity on water, one that can be replicated around the world in any number.
