The competition asks: How can we design architecture that responds to societal issues for tomorrow’s generations amidst ongoing climate and planet challenges?
The way our built environments are designed should keep pace or even foresee changes in societal compositions. Whether countries are facing decreasing birth rates and mortality rates, can we still afford to design in ‘silos’? The FuturArc Prize 2023 Competition aims to find out.
- Pick a site in Asia up to 5 hectares.
- Analyze the population census of your selected site at the macro and local levels.
- Investigate issues faced by the age groups in the area, supported by real-world data.
- Decide on a new mixed-use architectural intervention that could respond to the challenges identified (no single-function schools; community centres; libraries; parks; resorts; or hotels).
- The competition is open internationally to any individual or team, student or professional.
- Each team may comprise up to five members and may be from different related disciplines or a mix of students and professionals. The solo entrant or team leader must have an architecture background (student, graduate or professional).
- Panels must be submitted in English.
- Note: Proposals must be supported by relevant real-world data and analysis. Extra credits will be awarded for the use of local resources, materials and manpower, and/or making space for non-human species (flora and fauna).
