The 2022 National Architecture Ideas Competition "La ville ensemble, toutes et tous" is organized by the Cercle de Zaha. The aim of the competition is to encourage students and young graduates to take into account the subject of gender and the integration of all in the design of public space. The theme of the competition was "la ville ensemble, toutes et tous" (the city together, all of us), designing an exemplary non-gendered space. The subject of the competition is the Place Jean Jaurès in Lyon, in the 7th district. (CRC translation)
This year's competition challenges students and professionals from all over the world to propose how to design urban spaces, cities, buildings, objects, or solutions of any scale, directed towards the transition to Biocities. These responses should explore how we might adapt to the changing relations between human and natural systems in a moment of climate crisis. Cities have always reflected the civilizations that built them, and at this critical moment where climate change is transforming our living environment, we must rethink our position of domination in relation to all that surrounds us. To respond to rising concerns of the bursting of planetary boundaries, which regulate the stability and resilience of the earth system as it currently stands, we urge the need to simultaneously look at nature based as well as advanced technological solutions to reimagine resilient cities of the future.
