RE-Form DESIGN COMPETITION 2015 now is over!
Traditional definitions of space, form and function are no longer able to fully adapt to the new and continuously evolving behaviors of our society. These new ways of interaction are a consequence of new technologies, which have drastically changed the patterns of social engagement.
How can we address these new modes of interaction? What are the new objects/tools produced by the hybridization of traditional definition of spaces and these new engagement opportunities? Let’s challenge, re-form, and re-structure established notions of verb and space.
Participants are free to define a contemporary social/civil “problem” created by the juxtaposition of specific actions and spaces. They should propose an object “solution” to the contemporary “problem” they have identified.
The proposed solution could be as small as a water bottle and as big as a car. Some of the issues that could be address are homelessness, technology, workplace, environmental awareness and so on and so forth.
Design an object or interaction that inspires or has been inspired by a new contemporary behavior!
