Type: Open competition for architecture students in two stages
International architecture competition organized by Samsung Everland that, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, is inviting students in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design programs around the world to participate in our design competition. We are looking for creative ideas and innovative design approaches that will lead us to the new possibilities of urban typologies.
Most urban spaces are created with clear intentions. Yet, some are not. They are the results of the indifferences in planning, design, and urban economy. These spaces are neither purposed nor defined. We can find these types of spaces in every corner of any city. In most cases, these spaces are neglected. Now, we would like you to find these types of spaces that are under utilized, and interpret them in a new way to bring out its full potentials.
The subject of the proposal, “reinterpreting urban space” lies in providing citizens a new perspective toward urban spaces by redefining the relationship between these indeterminate spaces and the city by re-invigorating them with new possibilities.
