Non Architecture Award for unbilt projects now is over!
Non Architecture Award for unbilt projects: Non Architecture launches an award to honour those projects that didn’t take that approach and are unbuilt and unbuildable, either because they were designed to stay as such, or because their innovative charge brought them into the realm of the unpractical.
Non Architecture (NonA) recently has announced ’NON ARCHITECTURE AWARD FOR UNBUILT PROJECTS’ to honour those projects that didn’t take that approach and are unbuilt and unbuildable.
Construction is the most obvious reward for an architectural project, but very often in order to make things buildable, architects have to sacrifice innovation and creativity and surrender to business as usual.
Non Architecture launches an award to honour those projects that didn’t take that approach and are unbuilt and unbuildable, either because they were designed to stay as such, or because their innovative charge brought them into the realm of the unpractical.
By recognizing remarkable achievements in architecture, organiser intend to highlight exemplary projects that serve as inspiration for practitioners. Equally important, these awards elevate the potential for positive impact that an exploratory approach in architecture has on the future of the profession.
You can submit any project type, including theoretical, student works, conceptual designs, competition entries, research and speculative initiatives. Projects can have an exploratory or critical purpose, as long as they were not designed with the primary goal of being built.
Non Architecture will award 1 winner and 9 honourable mentions for each category, selected by the jurors collectively.
Non Architecture framed 4 categories. They are ideologically open and comprehensive, leaving to the designers the decision to select the most suitable category for their project:
➜ URBAN – Projects can include any urban or master plan dedicated to the long-term connections between buildings, infrastructure, social and economic conditions, environments, and future development.
➜ LANDSCAPE – Projects admittable not only include gardens and parks. They can more extensively or subtly address nature, and as such, be eligible for this category.
➜ ARCHITECTURE – Projects can include residential, commercial, cultural, hospitality, institutional, sports & recreation, transportation, or temporary structures.
➜ ASPATIAL – Projects can include abstract and conceptual ideas with no physical representation such as utopian projects, projects for digital platforms, tools or devices, process-oriented projects, participatory process or even gaming and digital simulations.
➜ Innovation and novelty in the design solution proposed.
➜ Critical interpretation of the project.
➜ Clarity and effectiveness of the visual communication of the project.
The winners will be anounced 01 - 05 November 2021.
Non Architecture Award is open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually.
