SELECTED NEWS FEED ON COMPETITIONS
This competition invites to reflect on new approaches to the design, organization and experience of museums that can amplify and accelerate climate action in diverse contexts and on diverse scales. While thousands of museums around the world remain closed, new forms of engagement and experimentation have emerged to rethink the relationship between museums and society. This competition seeks to generate design and concept proposals that are radically different from the "traditional" museum, or that explore new ways for traditional museums to function. These museums of the future could thus incorporate a multitude of ways in which communities around the world have responded to COVID-19 and inspire radical new forms of action to address the climate and ecological emergency.
RE-Stock London Housing
Registration Deadline: June 12, 2020, Closing date for submissions: July 17, 2020
In response to London's ongoing housing crisis, this architectural competition invites participants to be bold and think outside the box. How can housing be an answer to some of the issues we face today - community cohesion, low energy consumption, reducing the carbon footprint, food production, building methods, etc.? Participants can propose either extensions to existing housing or new housing programmes that can be easily deployed to increase the city's housing capacity.
This competition calls on designers, urban planners and architects, whether students or professionals, to contribute to the reflection on the role of design in the face of climate change. The theme is open and participants will be able to choose their approach, including existing buildings, public buildings, housing and parks. The solutions offered can deal with the prevention of climate change or be designed in response to existing disasters.
