Announcement of the international student competition – DOTY2016.
Aarhus School of Architecture, schmidt hammer lassen architects, VOLA, and Danish Arts Foundation proudly announce the fourth joint venture competition Drawing of the Year 2016. This year’s theme is Habitation.
Deadline: 1 November 2016 at 12.00 noon (CET).
Technology has transformed how architects work — and how their work is perceived. Therefore, Drawing of the Year 2016 will focus exclusively on sketches and drawings created using digital technology. The aim of the competition is to continuously explore new tendencies in architectural drawing and challenge the use of new techniques and mixed media.
This year’s competition examines the potential for developing architectural ideas through a digital format. How can digital drawing push the boundaries of our perception of Habitation? How can digital drawings express artistic skills? And how can digital technology contribute to the understanding of drawing as a craft?
We invite bold, inspiring, and innovative proposals on how architects imagine, develop and contribute to new ways of perceiving habitation through drawing. On all scales and in all environments, from the smallest cabin to complex living facilities in rural outskirts, suburban environments, nature or in expanding megacities.
We accept drawings from students at architecture schools all over the world. The internationally acclaimed jury will award digitally produced drawings that inspire, communicate and engage in architecture in an artistic way. Drawings should reflect a media of production and dissemination of thoughts and dreams, and should invite the recipient to wonder, be moved or become involved in the discussion of architecture and habitation.
After the competition the drawings will be curated, printed and exhibited at Aarhus School of Architecture. A book containing a curated selection of the drawings will be published in 2017.
