FRAMEWORK

fire

Fire: extravagant, egocentric, impulsive, strong, irresponsible and adventurous. One of the 4 elements of nature and the greatest achievement of the human being, which allowed the survival of the species. With fire Man developed the protection, the comfort of cold nights, the search for light and discovered the cooked food. He controlled it for his own benefit, changed survival habits in a dramatic way, and nowadays, fire can be a symbol of destruction and danger, giving it a negative connotation, or a symbol of rebirth and renewal of forces divine. Fire can be heaven or hell, peace or war, a small ou big flame. One thing is certain, whoever plays with it can get burned.

24h competition 20th edition – biomimetic

FRAMEWORK

What does nature have to teach us?
Do we need to perceive it better by copying it in search of perfection, or simply to understand the rules that govern it?
Nature is multidisciplinary and everything seems to work effortlessly, because it is not designed to be perfect, but functional, non-toxic, adaptable and “alive” in form or function.
Biomimetic is a new movement created by spontaneity and perpetuated by the need to create sustainability solutions.
It is up to the human being to discover the powers and, with the right dose of utopia, to make it the best way to respect the nature of which we are all a part.
Making it happen is the master key of these new doors ahead …

biomimetic
All living forms present in nature carry mathematical formulas and quantifications.
The interpretation of these forms can be the great achievement for architecture that, intelligently, should translate them into solutions and needs in a sustainable and functional strategy.
Natural examples are biological inspirations of efficiency and aesthetic / functional balance.
The way of looking at forms can finally awaken to the simplicity of what more complex exists on the face of the earth: life itself.

biomimetic competition winner

PROGRAM

collective housing

Objective:
In this exercise we propose that nature be your inspiration. It is intended that you apply natural systems in the conceptual process of your project. More than simple patterns or coatings, you must understand these systems and apply them in your constructive process. We want that you see in the nature a solution for this building.
Inspired by the principles of biomimetics, we challenge you to design a collective housing building.

Program:
– You must define the population and the number of flats for your building.
– You should think other spaces like services, shops, restaurants or others.
– Localization: not defined
– Areas: not defined

The panel must have a descriptive text of the proposal (English), concept, idea, etc.
Scale – Appropriate to the submitted elements

RESULTS
1st Place – ID0001070 – Team: Maël Barbe, Clémentine Huck; City: Clermont-Ferrand; Country: France
“Perceiving the desert as an environment suitable for human occupation in an increasingly denser world, Ecosystem of Desert finds inspiration in natural behaviors rather than natural forms, taking advantage of how animal and vegetal species deal with harsh conditions to create an auspicious context to human settlement. Cacti, termites and beetles are seen as natural models to, respectively, protecting living spaces from direct sun, providing air circulation and holding humidity – the project thus reflects not their appearances, but instead their processes, that is, the way they adapt to their own surroundings. ”
Romullo Fontenelle, arq.

“The project deals with our nowadays Anthropocene era, climate change, and global population increase. Despite the UN prospects of 75% of the population will be living in urban settlements in 2050, the proposal takes advantage of an undesired territory to be colonized: the desert. A potential anchor for a future counterpoint of rural strategical development.

The structure proposed is a wise underground construction inspired in how live can developed strategies to survive in such extreme conditions. The beautiful drawing and poetical expression of the idea confronts with the simplicity of a telluric constructive act expressed in a symbolic object.” Jin Taira, arq.

“The proposal conceptualizes complex natural systems into clear design ideas, to give form to a collective housing oasis in the dessert. By taking into consideration contemporary issues to society such as over population, it successfully analyses and deploys adaptability to inhabited areas. ” Mario Vahos, arq.

“This project addresses a dystopian future where the climate and/or growth of the human population forces us to live in harsh desert conditions.

For such conditions, this entry has found some greats examples from nature in how to cope with overheating, unfertile land and water shortage. The design however needs to be further developed to make this convincing as architecture, even though the presentation is very nice.” Gerhard Linder, arq.

“The ‘Ecosystem of Desert’ is most creative and innovative design which presents clear solution and direction with very poetic but powerful visual representation. The suggestive section and simple diagrams show how the new ecosystem performs as collective housing.” Chang Kyu Lee, arq.

2nd Place – ID000480 – Team: Nahid Akram; City: California; Country: United States
“Polyp – a symbio-mimetic module creates living spaces in probably one of the most intricate urban contexts in contemporary world: war-torn cities. Taking advantage of the enormous amount of rubble left by the conflicts and finding inspiration in the “mutually beneficial relationship between algae and modern corals”, the project is based on the idea of converting debris into architecture – what in a broader sense refers to cyclical processes found in nature in which living species dye, are transformed into mineral and organic substances, to be combined again into new forms of life in a continuous cycle. ” Romullo Fontenelle, arq.

“The project has a double direction. An inspirational study of polyps and the development of a collective dwelling created of prefab modules. A proper solution to provide shelter for people subject of impact hazards. Despite the interest of both ideas, and the potential benefit to human race, is unclear the impact influence of the polyp in the final formal configuration of the unit module typology or the resultant unit- conglomerate block in patio configuration. Habitat, designed by architect Moshe Safdie in 1967 was considered a potential project for the future, but the path proposed was only partially adopted. Maybe, our critical present will bring again the revival of high-density and compact prefab construction systems.”Jin Taira, arq.

“The proposal provides an innovative solution to the rebuilding of war-torn areas by the use of modular units as shelters and working areas. The reproduction of this rational building unit by the re-use of materials on-site responds to the precarious situation of war, and gives an alternative solution to temporary housing systems. ” Mario Vahos, arq.

““Polyp” addresses one of the imminent global challenges, how to rapid provide shelter and rebuild parts of civilization that has been hit by disaster. Using the symbioses between coral and algae as inspiration for the reuse and remaking of building ruins, is both very creative and sustainable, regardless of the realism. This project also manages to go beyond pure idea, to the design of the single units. This design allows adding parts to the units to adopt to changing needs, thus making the design even more flexible. Finally, all the units add up to a large complex, a building block that has a distinctive expression and architecture which could be a part of the urban fabric. The presentation is precise and beautiful, a contrast to the horrors this concept emerged from. ” Gerhard Linder, arq.

“The modular and recycling system drives this proposal energetic and effective idea to illustrate competition theme, ‘Biomimetic’. The reproduction of processing unit not only creates a new image of human habitants, but also allows human survive in nutrient-poor environments. ” Chang Kyu Lee, arq.

3rd Place – ID0001110 – Team: Jack Francis, Rebecca Beer, Andrew Waller; City: Portsmouth; Country: United Kingdom
“In a more literal way than the two other winners, the project A Living Resilience finds in the pinecone and its particular form and natural behavior the inspirations to design a building capable to protect its own inner spaces from the cold night and assure maximum solar gain during the day. A series of moving scales closes and opens according to the time of the day, creating adequate living spaces for its inhabitants in harsh environments – more and more common in an out of balance world.” Romullo Fontenelle, arq.

“As the projects before, the proposal, consequently with nowadays global climate change condition, supports the philosophy of intervention in the sensitive concept of resilience.
Maybe the most formally biomimetic project of the three awarded ones, structures a collective housing and green tower based in the fibonacci geometry to produce a gigantic pinecone.
The responsive façade solution follows an important direction in current innovative technology construction that has being successfully built in extreme climates as the Al Bahar Towers in Abu Dhabi (Aedas, 2012).” Jin Taira, arq.

“The proposal successfully interprets the need for adaptable and dynamic structures that can respond to natural conditions.
It studies the Fibonacci sequence and uses the shape of a pinecone as inspiration to the design of a dynamic building structure, which responds and blends with its surroundings.
By adapting its shape, it optimizes energy gains and reduces the need for external sources of energy. ” Mario Vahos, arq.

“”Organic” suggests the use of Chitin as the main building component. Chitin is a strong biopolymer found in crabs and shellfish. The material is 100% recyclable and given the right tools it could be used for 3D printing. The idea of a crane size 3D printer is seductive. The building design is interesting and shows potential, but need to be further developed. The presentation however is convincing.” Gerhard Linder, arq.

“Interesting Octagonal floor layout and composition. The dynamic mechanism makes the proposal very unique concept and solution which starts from Pinecone and Fibonacci numbers to growth of human life. The ‘A Living Resilience’ is able to change and adapt through interacting with the environment.” Chang Kyu Lee, arq.

Launch of 24h competition 21st edition – home

Ideasforward wants to give young creative people from around the world the opportunity to express their views on the future of societies through their innovative and visionary proposals. We are an experimental platform seeking progressive ideas that reflect on emerging themes.

home 24H Competition

The eco design, sustainable architecture, new materials, concepts and technologies are compelling issues in the societies of the future and the involvement of the whole community is imperative. In an era of globalization where communication was dominated by the technological revolution, there is the need to rethink the cities and how Man relates in a global World as well as rethink the economic, social and cultural patterns of contemporary societies. The young creatives and thinkers are a precious commodity that we value a lot and so we want to give them a voice.

FRAMEWORK home

We are our origins transformed by time and experiences. We are part of a team, a type of blood and a skin color that teaches us from small, to call it family. We learn over time to let go of it and let the adventure take us far, somewhere less safe, but full of new experiences. We transform ourselves, to relearn everything again, to return to the place that has cradled us and, again, we can call it family. And if all this fits within a house, apart from the family, we will have a Home.

Winning designs for 24h competition 19th edition – Ct´s

Competition summary

FRAMEWORK

From the moment Man becomes sedentary, the first human groupings occur, thus, cities are born.
For the need to organize in space; By the need for independence and to create a social organization, cities arise as a will and urgency to transform the individual into a collective that, in turn, will transform the singular collective into a plural collective.
Cities are the result of the need of their Men, and the future will become the result of their wills.

Ct´s

Utopian thoughts have always been gathered on the construction of cities, with the greatest concern being the constant quality of human beings life, as a society with an eye on the future.
Some of these great proposals have never materialized because they were considered a utopian error, but they have served as inspiration for many proposals for urban planning.
Our present cities are still not perfect, of course, but it is because of this that evolution and the needs for change remain present in the demands of society.
Knowledge, Ethics, Esthetics will be the way to reach a site that everyone seeks to find.
“The city of today is dying because its planning is not in the geometric proportion of a quarter. The result of a true geometric layout is repetition, the result of repetition is a pattern. The perfect shape “. Le Corbusier

Some rererences: Ville Radieuse, Le Corbusier; Broadacre City, Frank Lloyd Wright, Garden Citie, Ebenezer Howard

Theme: master plan

Objective:
Draw a master plan for the city of the future.
Over the time, many studies were made about cities, and how they would be. We want, in a simplified way, that you draw a master plan for what you think that can be the city of the future. You must define the city model, its population, circulation system and its organization.

Program:
You have to define obligatorily, these 6 areas of the city:
– Housing; commerce; services; industry; communication routes and green spaces. (You can include other areas that you consider).
– Population: You must define.
– Localization: undefined
– Areas: undefined

1st place – ID0001240 – Team: Piotr Pietras, Veronica Camuncoli; City: Lund; Country: Sweden

Winning design for 24h competition 19th edition - Ct´s

“The proposal reorders and structures the cities with innovative solutions very connected to the recent past. The buildings have a large range of detail in their composition elements and in their different scales. The somewhat conservative reference is equally attractive and well-worked.” Joanna Helm, arq.

“The proposal is based on an inspiring interpretation of handling density in complex urban settings, which also aims to minimize buildings’ impact on natural environments. The way the project interprets precedents and takes them further by speculating on the future of cities is appreciated. The versatility of individual “city floors” within the proposed system promises variations in urban settings with different requirements, which forms another important aspect of the design. Finally, keeping the limited time available in mind, the proposal has successfully been developed and elaborated to present its speculative scenario for prospective urban settings.” Onur Ozkoc, arq.

“Looking forward to Ct you, takes on the grand issue of densification while maintaining the urged quality of life. Light, air and a close relation to green nature is the remedy, so they stack the city to make space on the ground. I really like the ambitious thought of solving this through simple organization, solving the city as you would a building. The proposal is very elegantly communicated.” Martin Smedsrud, arq.

“The proposal has managed to create the perfect urban community in scale, diversity, legibility and organization. At the same time, it manages to propose a solution for solving a rational and effective mass production of communities on a macro level. It shows an understanding for the important, and at times dystopian, visions of the utopias from the last century, and combines them with a delicate solution for city design on a human scale. Prototyping the perfect city within a framework that can allow adjustment and local adaptation, stacked in mega structures that can inhabit any context and be scaled to infinity.” Arne Reisegg, arq.

“More than nine decades after first presented by Le Corbusier, the city of the Modern Movement still lives and thrives in our imagination: tabula rasa, implicit confidence in philosophical positivism and faith in technological progressivism.
How dense can we make the city? How clean? How tall? How fast can we move around it? In sum, what is the best city (future) technology can build? The Horizontal City is a powerful and neat proposal that skillfully answers all those questions with a good dose of optimism. It borrows heavily and uncritically from its Modern—and even pre-Modern—precedents, and it is perhaps that lack of criticism that pushes it forward making it somehow credible, and subtly disquieting.” Alvaro Bonfiglio, arq.

2nd Place – ID000730 – Team: Francisco José Vannini, Emiliano Barbeito, María Candela Parra; City: Villa Carlos Paz; Country: Argentina

2nd prize for 24h competition 19th edition - Ct´s

“A solution that responds to a close contingent, with connections that adapts the technologies to aN utopian city.
The central element of the city is renovated and transported through virtual reality is at last an interesting, creative and re-based element of the concept of the ancient Agora.
It is a simple proposal, static, without great aesthetic variations, which in the meantime is closer to a possible future reality.” Joanna Helm, arq.

“The project’s unique approach to merge the virtual and physical worlds in a single proposal is rather exciting, however, the project may benefit from a deeper investigation of the possibilities and extents imposed by digital media on individual’s lives. The brilliant proposal for coexistence in both realms may also benefit from eliminating direct references such as taking a circuit board as a model for “city growing concept.”Onur Ozkoc, arq.

“Over-linked takes augmented reality to city planning. The city center as what we want it to be, not on a personal level, but as something the public can experience together. It’s an intriguing thought, and nicely presented.” Martin Smedsrud, arq.

“The proposal focuses on a traditional mixed city ideal in combination with a utopia of futuristic connectivity and virtual experience. Although it is not scalable to address a larger demand for housing in an urban context, it could be copied and linked to create a cluster of mini cities.” Arne Reisegg, arq.

“Nowadays, we interact with the built environment through a mixture of real relationships and virtual connections: we search for a good coffee shop by checking maps over the smartphone, or we chat with friends in a bar while asking other friends to join us through some social media application. Or, we can even find specific sets of information overlaid directly on the camera feed of our smartphones through the use of augmented reality. The Over-Linked proposal tries and explores with great insight and craftsmanship these real, virtual and mixed reality environments, this is, the virtual continuum, at a city scale. Its main urban space, the QR Center–which is somewhat close to Star Trek’s holodeck–is actually a void ready to be filled with imaginary and fantastic worlds. Here, the traditional ceremonial, monumental and representative center of the city becomes a virtual playground. The possibilities are endless.” Alvaro Bonfiglio, arq.

3rd PLace – ID000580 – Team: Konstantin Golovnev, Ekaterina Limonova, Sergey Izko; City: Saint-Petersburg; Country: Russian Federation

3rd prize for 24h competition 19th edition - Ct´s

“A proposal of conformation of utopian city that has responded with intelligence according to the requirements of the contest.
The solution of independent modules that are connected and that are in constant movement, is delicate and sensitive. Structures are grouped and separated by deconstructing the concept of boundaries, creating mutable and constantly moving cities.
The modules of occupation were well thought out and developed and the proposal explains well the mechanisms of operation and interconnectivity between spaces and the infinite possibilities of organization of cells. A simple proposal, which presents a futuristic rereading of beehive cities.” Joanna Helm, arq.

“The project successfully interprets cities as plug-in stations for mobile units. Variation in the layouts of individual units, and consideration of urban zones as a result of mobile units’ configurations are well elaborated to convey the main idea. In short, the alternative scenario of moving cities and stations forms an interesting contribution to the discussions on the future of cities.” Onur Ozkoc, arq.

““ Cities appear by the will of certain people to live together for a while on a particular territory” – The proposal redefines the city in an ideal world where you get to choose your
belonging. No strings attached.” Martin Smedsrud, arq.

“The proposal takes an interesting position in the discussion around countries vs cities for future power centers, and the possible changeability of the urban environment. The movable cells support the idea of the city as an organism, and a future society without borders.” Arne Reisegg, arq.

“Natural Born Nomads. This proposal generates a fantastic response to a simple thesis: Humans are roamers, and whenever the species reaches the necessary level of technological development, it will naturally evolve towards a nomadic society. Thus, this project feels closer to an exercise of prospective science-fiction than an urban design proposal, because in fact, there will be no cities. In the future, total mobility is achieved through drone-like dwelling units, which are capable of forming ad-hoc cluster compounds: always changing, always moving. Ready to fly to the next destination, looking for better weather, companion, or services.” Alvaro Bonfiglio, arq.

The virtual ceases to be a virtuosity of the past towards the future, and begins to be a tool of the new realities in which we live. The dimensions are now different, inserted in the new world with new realities that may come to be, exist, almost complete, but totally virtual.

What if you were unable to wake up from this dream?
How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? ”

FRAMEWORK
bauHause Change is a consequence of the growth and realization of the human being, as a thinking being and element of a social organization of which he is a part. Here, art is a open door to the manifestations and desires of this same society, and questioning whether new paths and answers are found. Art does not ask, art responds. Put in question, to become a consequence and, brick to brick, solid walls grow from an ever closer future, where we will all live and from it we will make our house …

24H Competition 15th edition News

Text from design competition organisers:

Framework

The Universe created the Gods.
It is what little known of what human consciousness conceived of the unknown.
The emergence of the deities in historical explanation, invasions, conquests, legends and myths gave consistency to man’s own power over himself. The highest Greek mountain has become the temple of the Gods, as the inner force that moves us: our house. Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Athena, Ares, Demeter, Apollo, Artemis, Hephaestus, Aphrodite, Hermes, Dionysus.
Olympus assembled in council.
Different views, different perspectives of the same face divided by walls that isolates them by thoughts.
And that’s where we live, where the differences look for common places: a Temple, a common place, and 12 non common places.

mythology
One of the most brilliant heritages of humanity. Architecture of fascination in the minds of a people, which turned doubts into certainties.
Gods are reinvented in human bodies that mirror the imperfect creation of space.
Force of believing.
Myth, tale, legend.
Asymmetric symmetries of the world …

Program

a Temple for Gods

Objective: design a Temple for the Olympus Gods.
We did not want to stick to a simple religious space, the introduction of the 12 Gods of Olympus, are for themselves the program for your Temple. Each one have your own personality and abilities.

Program:
– Localization: Mount Olympus

1st place – ID000840 – Team: Abhijeet Karwa, Stuti Murarka, Unnati Khanna, Sreemoyee Ray, Trisha Dasgupta; City: Mumbai; Country: India

24H Competition Mythology design

“The proposal reinterpret the search for divinity into a quest – a game designed by the Gods themselves to challenge us. And to make sure only the few and the worthy gain access to the mighty Council of the Gods. The graphics are intricate, while self-explanatory, and shows great creativity in interpreting the 12 Gods of Olympus into architectonic space.” Arne Reisegg, arq.
“The sequential scenario defining the series of challenges and the relation between mythology and gaming was considered significant about the proposed design. The architectural language was considered inspiring due to the level differences on Mount Olympus. The proposed path and its continuity within the context is quite impressive.” Ziya Imren, arq.
“Great way of answering the challenge!! A path to divinity construed as a game. Appealing design.” Francisco Freitas, arq.
“Interesting the idea of creating a path throughout the mountain where you´ll be able to achieve divinity. It might be a game! Or not! The track and the spaces, created along the journey are disposed in a way that enriches the discovering of the mountain while crossing temples. You can feel the power of the gods.” José Martinez, arq.
“It’s a theme park! Just like mythology. ” Ygit Acar, arq.

2nd Place – ID000940 – Team: Andrei Theodor; City: Bucharest; Country: Romania

24H Competition Mythology design

“The tower is a strong symbol for the journey towards the Gods, and the text explains the ascend in a poetic manor. The fact that the tower is firmly grounded on earth and ends in thin air is a great image for the distance that remains between Man and God, even after having scaled the house of the sleeping deities.” Arne Reisegg, arq.
“The positioning of the spatial order within the vertical composition was found quite strong that somehow juxtaposing with the mythology and its glory. ” Ziya Imren, arq.
“Great design! This path Is conceived as an amazing journey. It is indeed architecture for gods.” Francisco Freitas, arq.
“The proposal assumes the god´s house as a tower, a sculpture landed on the mountain. In silence we can feel the power of the gods. Climbing the structure we can feel the presence of the different gods when we cross each floor until we reach the end of the journey – ZEUS.”
José Martinez, arq.
“The abstract representation of each deity has a compositional finesse. The idea of representing the gods in a vertical manner is also a nice touch, which very subtly refers to our current society. ” Ygit Acar, arq.

3rd PLace – ID0002260 – Team: Tobias Bor, Christian Slama; City: Kassel; Country: Germany

24H Competition Mythology design

“The proposal brings the journey back to a more human scale – both in physical space and on the spiritual plane. The 12 Gods are interpreted into a set of architectonic pavilions for spiritual contemplation toward a route to divine enlightenment.” Arne Reisegg, arq.
“The design treatment of the replacing gods temples into human scaled spaces with their scenarios was considered sensible. Re-arraging the spaces within this idea and overall naive representation was totally differed from other proposals. Series of experiences have been designed for people, by creating frame of visions, atmospheres, light and shadow elements within spatial aspects.” Ziya Imren, arq.
“Interesting work: the transformation of a simple box shape into different spaces for different gods. Hiking Mount Olympus!” Francisco Freitas, arq.
“Amazing the idea of having a walking route with several modules, all with the same size, though establishing each gods house with different drawings, distinct sets, synthetizing each god’s own symbolism / image. Astonishing presentation with a minimalistic illustration and a powerful strong image.” José Martinez, arq.
“Each of the pavilions present clever interpretations of each god.” Ygit Acar, arq.

Antarctica Design Competition

FRAMEWORK

It is the coldest, driest continent with the highest average altitude and the highest rate of high winds on the planet.

ANTARTICA.

In recent years we have seen huge climate change on our planet. These changes are due primarily to global warming which leads to the melting of glaciers and consequently to increased levels of the oceans. Much has been said, but little has been done. In 2005 the Kyoto Protocol, the Bali Conference in 2007, in 2009 the Copenhagen Conference – COP-15, however nothing seems to change! In 2013, NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) released a report which shows that the planet has reached the highest concentration of carbon dioxide in history. We have 24H to act!
