Alternate Realities 2020 Open Call

Open Call – Alternate Realities 2020

This competition exists in an Alternate Reality. You make the rules in this realm. Does gravity exist? Do humans live on Earth? How far has technology advanced? You decide!

The aim of this competition is to explore wild design ideas – what architecture truly means and what it can achieve without any constraints. Let your imagination run wild and create spectacular designs that grab the world’s attention. The intention is to spark a conversation regarding issues plaguing the world, through design dialogue.

Architecture is a unique amalgamation of the nuances of the art world and the pragmatism of the real world; therefore, it has the power to not only capture people’s imaginations, but also to strongly influence their lives.

Alternate Realities 2020 Call for Entries

For the Alternate Realities competition, participants are required to design an architectural response to an issue that the world is facing – climate change, pandemics, biological warfare, nuclear proliferation, social inequality, etc. Your design doesn’t necessarily have to be a solution. It can also be a visual commentary. Your Architectural Response may fall anywhere on the Utopia – Dystopia spectrum. Remember, reality can be anything you want it to be in this realm.

  • Unleash your creativity – Surprise us!
  • Be critical – Say something about the world.
  • Striking visuals – Capture the imagination of architects and non-architects alike.
  • No design is too wild!
