THE FUTURE BY DESIGN: Product Design Competition 2020
Submit by Sunday, Aug 23, 2020
Can you design a product for the physical and mental well-being of people during the COVID lockdown, by way of “design”? It could be a design that makes working from home easier, it could be a light fixture, it could be a furniture-system that morphs into various functions, it could be a system that helps you finish your health routines or just a cosy corner that you want to curl up to. Explore design in its maximum potential; objects, textures, visuals.
Competition for Architectural Ideas to Prepare for the Post-COVID-19 Era
Submit by Monday, Aug 24, 2020
COVID-19 is making a lot of changes in our lives. In a society where “social distancing” has become a way of daily life, the existing city, architecture, various daily life spaces, and ways of life cannot help but change. Therefore, the Seoul Metropolitan Government is promoting various space ideas as well as concepts for architecture, the city, and landscape that can respond to a pandemic such as COVID-19, and the changes in daily life in the post-COVID-19 era.
SOCIAL DISTANCING - Housing Block
Submit by Saturday, Aug 29, 2020
This competition calls for alternative housing models to disrupt the real estate market in a scenario of prolonged social distancing. We ask for a creative approach to architectural design, departing from a given users, program and extension. Social Distancing Housing Block is part of a Competition series, developed to imagine new dwelling models through a variety of creative architectural designs and feasible innovation. Considering the limits of the current housing market, what could be the domestic architecture of the future?
