whitehouseredux competition : Architecture
Contemporary Architecture Exhibition in NYC, United States of America
14 Oct 2008
whitehouseredux competition and exhibition
at Storefront for Art and Architecture after its renovation in NY City
Theme of the competition:
to redesign the White House, as if it were to be built today
alex schulz from germany, architect / designer from germany (working mainly in the fields of design with projects shown at triennale milano 05, passagen cologne 06, 100%design london 07, etc.) together with architect ralf schormann from duesseldorf, germany have submitted the entry “rediscovery”, which is amongst the 50 shortlisted projects (shown in ny storefront gallery and published in the internet and in the whitehouseredux book just released).
“rediscovery” is a dual concept for the whitehouse, consisting of a building and a airship as a mobile part (including a mobile oval office). the airship is set to establish a world wide network in pursuit of new green technologies, making it possible to one nation to learn from another. the building serves also as a greenhouse for endangered endemic species.
Public vote for all shortlisted projects.
