Laka invites designers from around the world to submit their ideas of ‘Architecture That Reacts’.
The subject of the competition is architectural, urban, technological, or product design that is capable of dynamic interaction with its social, natural, or built surroundings. The main focus of the competition is on solutions developed through a process of changes and adjustments.
Achieving such a goal requires an interdisciplinary approach that often goes beyond typical solutions. The winning projects from the previous editions often took advantages from disciplines such as robotics, mechanics, digital fabrication, biodesign and biofabrication, computational design, materials science, bioarchitecture, social sciences, industrial design, mobility, and more. The participants are free to decide the project’s location, scale, size, and program. In 2019, the Laka Competition ‘Architecture that Reacts’ celebrates its fifth edition!
Main prizes and honorable mentions will be selected. The winner
for the year 2020 and the laureates of the main prizes will be
awarded additional cash prizes and invited to present their projects
during the ‘Architecture in Foyer 2020’ conference at the Solarlux
Campus (Melle, Germany) on April 23–24, 2020. Laureates of all
recognitions will be presented on Laka’s websites, promoted via
Laka’s network of partners, and included in future publications
related to the competition ‘Architecture that Reacts.’ Moreover, the
best projects will be exhibited during ‘Architecture in Foyer 2020.’
