How can light and shadows, both literal and figurative, shape and influence design? To answer this, The Home of Shadows #2 competition is tasking architects and designers to explore how light and shadow can impact design choices.
For the competition, participants are asked to design a home for a hypothetical couple with just one rule – there can be no artificial light within the home. The jury will be looking for designs that study how natural light can influence and shape architectural decisions. Participants may select any theoretical site for their Home of Shadows and propose a design solution for the fully functional building.
The Home of Shadows #2 competition is open to all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum). Correspondence with organizers must be conducted in English; All information submitted by participants must be in English
