Now in its fourth year, the ASA International Design Competition is one of the annual programs the Association of Siamese Architects Royal Patronage organizes. The international competition aims to be a stage for architects and designers to showcase their creativity. To correspond with the theme "Living Green" of the exposition, the theme of this competition is titled "Uncanny Sustainability."
Competition this year is dedicated to fresh ideas in sustainability – approaches so radical, unanticipated, and transformative they earn the epithet ‘uncanny’.
"Uncanny sustainability" should open a route to the logical next steps in eco-friendly architecture : a built environment that is no longer human-centric but dedicated to the well-being of all living beings. Sustainable architecture has taken great strides in minimizing the consumption of energy and other resources, but great challenges remain and they demand bold responses.
What is an "Uncanny" solution?
These solutions are:
- vital to capture the public imagination, igniting passion for re-conceiving homes and cities.
- essential to shift the paradigm from human- to world-centric thinking for the environment where man is in true harmony with the rest of nature.
- critical to find big ideas that accelerate change – accessible, holistic solutions with broad applications.
The challenge is therefore to present ideas that surprise and – like any ‘uncanny’ event – challenge our assumptions and widen our views of what is possible. The judges will reward entries that provide this shock of fresh possibilities, whether by their challenge to conventions, their transformative potential, or their capacity to inspire.
