Your chance to design the first Acabion Hub or an intercontinental vacuum tube.

AACLB announces the 1st Acabion Architecture Competition. Architecture is defined as a contextual integrated system. AACLB announces its first international competition to enhance the knowledge of advanced architectural design towards an architecture of bionics and integrated systems within an inevitable complex context. If you are interested in an existing technology that allows you to travel fast and effectively based on the principles of nature and if you do want futuristic visions to become closer to reality, you may want to submit your proposal.

The competition offers entries within a number of categories, such as architecture, fashion, material technology or urban planning.  Acabion so far is a vehicle and transport system inspired by bionics manifesting high-performance. Acabion stands for innovation, sustainability, research and humanity. Acabion Architecture focuses on highly performative design inspired by nature, technology and the basics of living. We are looking at design proposals which do not impose but value our basic human desires now and In future. Therefore we are looking at contributions using software packages that take into account issues such as environmental powers, swarm intelligence, parametrics, beauty and culture specific wisdom. We welcome all contributions subscribing to those parameters.
