Architecture Competition for shared studio spaces for design firms & freelancers: Co-Design Milan
Buildings are often designed aspiring for their long lives. With our modern-day construction materials, the average lifespan of a building can be considered as 40-50 years. However, what happens when a building dies and what if it becomes defunct before that?Buildings when clubbed together form a locality which in turn add up to build a city. Proper functioning of any such building becomes an asset to a city. Contrarily, a defunct building is eventually a liability to a city.
Technological boost embarks our lifestyle enhancement. With this change, if a building cannot cater to the changing need of the society, it gets abandoned even before its physical death.
Propose a Designer’s Hub in City Life, Milan that can inhabit shared studio spaces for young design firms and freelancers.The land prices in this district are very high. Hence, if the building designed gets demolished/defunct before its physical death, it would cost a heavier financial loss to the city than any other piece of land in the city today. This challenge is an opportunity to solve the problem of out dating buildings by constructing something evolutionary for the designers by the designers.
