Generically entitled “A House for Pink Floyd”, the latest competition launched by ICARCH (International Competitions in Architecture), in partnership with Atelierul de Proiectare (AdeP – Design Studio) Magazine, wishes to celebrate architecture in its most liberal, revolutionary state. The competition will ambitiously focus on creating a typology of architecture inspired by the dictum “Architecture is frozen music”, a true manifesto of rebellion against obsolete values of the consumerist society.

As many of you know, Pink Floyd were and are considered to be one of the icons of revolutionary, progressive music, that took to using sonic experiments and philosophical lyrics to cross social boundaries and redefine values. In the same way, “A House for Pink Floyd” is to translate the band’s music philosophy into architecture – an attempt all the more legitimate, in this case, if we are to consider that three of the founding members of Pink Floyd studied architecture.

“A House for Pink Floyd” is an international architecture contest, open to all architects, architecture students and design students who are willing to take on such a challenge. The competition will focus on creating any object of architecture that transcends rules and standardisation and innovates through itself. There are no constraints in regard to site, program or size, in order to provide maximum freedom to participants.

All projects are to be submitted by electronic mail to both [email protected] and [email protected]. Yet, a prior registration will be needed in order to have yourself assigned a number, thus increasing the objectivity of the contest. To register and to receive additional information, please write to either [email protected] or [email protected]. The deadline to register is July 1st, 2013. The deadline to submit your work is July 31st, 2013.

The participating projects will be evaluated and judged by an international jury, to be later announced on www.adep.ro. and www.icarch.us. All projects shall be presented on www.icarch.us, while the winning work is to be published in AdeP Magazine. The contest will be celebrated through an exhibition hosted by the University of Architecture and Urbanism Ion Mincu of Bucharest, to be visited in the following time-frame: 20th August – 10th September 2013.
