REMOTE WORK CABIN now is over!
CALL FOR ENTRIES: The “REMOTE WORK CABIN” is a design competition developed to explore the creative potential of architectural design through one of the most iconic architectural drawings: the axonometric projection.
The aim of the “Remote Work Cabin” competition is to develop one drawing to communicate an architectural design. Participants are asked to create a design concept around the theme of nature and remote work. This time we challenge our designers to bring people back to nature, by designing a cabin as their ideal workplace in a natural environment. Designers are free to explore in a critical way the different interpretations of such topics, from practical approaches to more dystopian/utopian scenarios. No specific site is given. This is a competition where you develop your skills as a communicator, designer, and space thinker. We are not interested in the construction details, we want to see the space organization. The drawing can highlight functional aspects of the building, showing a deep understanding of one or more design aspects. It can focus on the aesthetic qualities, showing space configuration and specific project characteristics, or it can only display structural elements and overall massing. The elements shown in the entry are flexible and adaptable to the participants’ interpretation. The entry is completely flexible and adaptable to the participant’s perception.
The participants are asked to submit 1 ZIP 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 10-11), 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 architectural design / Relevance to the building function addressed by the competition
