As these two questions were reinterpreted in varied ways in the coronavirus pandemic, the house became a haven of different activities. As time passed, the home became a multidimensional space for housing not only the body, but also the undulating contours of emotions and feelings.
Looking at an era post the pandemic, this competition aims to explore how the house design takes on these multiple roles and creates the ideal space of the home.
This competition seeks to know the participants' idea of the house design, in the context of any site that they select. It encourages participants to rethink the basic functionality of the house and explore their notions of what a 'Home' is.
In that respect,
Every student or professional has, at least once in their course, designed the classic 'House' or 'Bungalow' be it for professional or academic purposes. The competition is open to participants creating new designs for the brief; or uploading projects they might have done in the past, ones actually constructed; or just conceptualised.
*Former participants kindly read the eligibility criteria carefull, given in the brief.
This competition is open for all the Students, Architects, Interior Designers, Teachers, Firms & Studios from all over the world.
