SELECTED NEWS FEED ON COMPETITIONS
MINI Living is a project by MINI that aims to translate one of the car brand's key design principles - the creative use of space - into real architectural solutions for how people live, work and interact in cities. Working predominantly with small spaces, the project seeks to answer urban challenges in a way that combines the brand's design knowledge with the spirit of experience and fun under the maxim: "big life, small footprint".
The competition is for a design that includes a new 100 unit affordable housing complex, a 700 sm (7500sf) market building and a1500 sm (16,150sf) plaza. This will be a two-phase competition with Phase 1 an RFQ to select a shortlist of up to five (5) design teams for Phase 2 to prepare a conceptual design. One member of each team is required to be formally registered as a member in good standing in one of the Provincial Architectural Associations in Canada.
Archstorming is calling for proposals to design an adaptive stadium that could also be used as a residential building. Giving the fact that the World Cup 2026 will be held in North America (USA, Canada and Mexico), the project for the stadium will be located in New York City (USA).
The proposed stadiums can work as both sports arena and residential building at the same time, adapt to sports arena or residential building depending on the required use or convert to residential building permanently after the sports event has finished.
The stadium could have the following (indicative) program: Soccer field, Stadium stands, Residential units (recommended size: 30 m2 to 100 m2), Restaurants, Offices, Shops and commercial spaces, Multipurpose spaces, Bathrooms, Gardens and public spaces.

The Home remains the most significant architectural place we experience throughout our lives. Home represents safety, ownership, privacy, and stability. Home is where we can be alone and with people we care about most. Historically, the home has been a place of permanence. Despite how chaotic our lives are, we cherish the consistency of sleeping in the same bed and performing the same daily rituals here.
What do you believe will be the future of home?
