ARCHI-HACK: OIL PLATFORM now is over!
ARCHI-HACK: OIL PLATFORM: The participants are asked to repurpose an oil platform by following the requirements of the brief and one axonometric projection to represent it, with absolute freedom of interpretation, technique and level of abstraction.
The aim of the “Archi-hack - Oil Platform” competition is to develop one drawing to communicate a conceptual design. The participants are asked to repurpose an oil platform by following the requirements of the brief and one axonometric projection to represent it, with absolute freedom of interpretation, technique and level of abstraction. Even the concept of axonometric itself can be questioned in order to craft the most expressive way to represent the concept. We encourage you to push the boundaries of creativity. You’re free to re-invent and hack any oil platform of your choice, in order to become whatever function, you might see fit: it can either be a statement, or have a very strong practical use. As long as the proposal utilizes an oil platform structure to create a revitalized form in its own distinct way.
Non Architecture is also unconventional in its submission requirements. The participants are asked to submit 1 folder, named with the registration code and the title of the project (CODE_Title), containing: 01. The Axonometric (.JPEG) File name: “CODE_Title of the project_Axonometric”. 02. A team document in Word (.DOC), containing / the title and subtitle of the project (maximum of 10 words) And the team’s info in the following format: / Name + Surname of each team member (separated clearly), / Nationality (multiple options can be added), / Institution/company (company or university attended, to be included just in case you want it to be visible once your project is published). There is no need to create a team name. One team should consist of 1-4 people. File name: “CODE_Title of the project_Team” 03. A Word document with keywords (.DOC), containing 5 keywords, at least 1 from the given list (page 11-12), that better explain your project, File name: “CODE_Title of the project_Keywords”
The core values of the competitions are: / Effective communication of the design qualities through the drawing / Originality of the design / Relevance to the building function addressed by the competition These values will lead the selection of the finalists’ projects and they will be used by the jury as a guideline in their decision.
