WINNERS PROJECTS DESCRIPTIONS:
*Van Long Le (Vietnam)
This is a project about one of any communities living on the ocean.
LOCATION: Quangninh – Vietnamn
Vietnam has more than 3 thousand kilometers of sea-coast, excluding islands. Marine economy has been developing very quickly here. So how communities can cling to the sea
what is so special in Quangninh sea?
The ocean and islands connect together organically. People are living on the sea. Cage fish are protected by surrounding islands. Tourism is the boat tours in the bay. It looks so beautiful and quite idyllic. But it is not! The coastal ecosystems were destroy appeared by people and marine tourism.
3 criteria: DENSITY REDUCTION, AQUACULTURE DEVELOPMENT, MORE TOURISTS.
OBJECTS: 3 main objects: FISH-FARM AND LOCAL PEOPLE, TOURISTS, OCEAN
CONCEPT: Currently, the forms of the fish-cage are not really suitable for the condition. We need a stronger connection between fish farms and islands and ocean.
STRUCTURE: Cells are the root of life! The smallest cells are accommodation units. They can connect together and also connect around the public center in many ways. I formed modules. Modules can reconnect to make many new different forms. It can create difference living opportunities and helps to build the relationship between tourism to the aquaculture. With the connection ways, it also is really flexible and strong. More interestingly, it can grow unlimited.

“Private space” – a concept project in the Future NOW category is presented by an individual participant. We live in a dynamic world. The speed of information exchange, the ability to move around in space and as recent events have shown, the absolute unpredictability of global problems. This project is an attempt by architecture to convey the image of our present. From the main view of the building, it is an extremely stable and static form. Square. The height is balanced by the width of the structure. It gives the impression of a monolithic shape. As we approach it, we are ready to build a cube in our imagination. Suddenly, when we look around the house, we see squares in space. Consistent fixation of the slope improves the state of dynamics. One of the walls is completely open to the panorama of the landscape. Made of glass and metal, it creates a combination of living space with nature.
About 300 meters of ceramic tiles are needed to finish a house. White dominates.

“We build too many walls but not enough bridges” by Isaac Newton is a quote implying the disconnections within people, generations, physical environment and holistic systems we established. In the belief to cherish a better connectivity, this project aims to realize the latent form of this statement, where we may moves forward collectively to a sustainable future that embraces diversity and integrity. As the massive baby boomer population during 60s is anticipated to age into retirement, the demand of a destination to cater their societal needs may foreseen. In response towards the generations gap or cultural chasm that grows rapidly, the proposal is an active senior clubhouse which set to contemplate a vision to rejuvenate connectivity in terms of societal, physical and contextual. Strategies are envisaged to realize the ideal community and environment include vitalizing attitude of openness, cultivating lifelong learning culture and enliven positive interaction within people from various backgrounds. The existing archetype of architecture emphasizes on clear defined spatial configuration whereby the inhabitants are well-contained and programmed. In this scheme, the project explores the threshold of conversion in order to subconsciously bring people to gather and anticipate diverse engagement, innovating the dialogue within generations and cherish the process of aging.

Built on the heart of New Zealand, stand a dynamic and complex house, The Up-Switch house. The up-switch is unlike any usual house that ever built on the surface of the earth. It is designed with a program that allows users to switch spaces vertically and experience multi-level architecture in a whole new way. This dynamic house has a feature that allows the central spatial structure to “vertically shift” according to its user’s preference, allowing the center of the house to be switchable space, from garage entrance, office, studio, to inner courtyard. The purpose of the project is to create a balanced, enjoyable, and aesthetic space of work and living.
*Vadim Crasnojon (Republic of Moldova)
Our concept represents a symbiosis of three functional zones: working, living and resting.
EUGLENA ECONEST (EE) is a clever, gadget house made by factory and it can be installed on any type of entourage, even on the water, for any period of time. EE is able to be configured, nowadays as a car, individually with different systems: from element of smart house to type and color of furniture cover. Being eco friendly EE has a high performance ability to gather and store solar energy and water for a long autonomous life. A group of neighboring EEs can help each other in charging batteries, sharing water or even drains. Having three different functional areas almost 40 square meters each level, offers decent living and working conditions for two people, four living people or four working people. It can be used only as an office or only as a house. Every part of EE, to dismemberment, is made by materials with a high level of putrefaction. For example of interior design the author proposed a workshop of an architect.
To be ecofriendly doesn’t mean to give up comfort and luxury but it means to use rationally every gram of matter offered by MOTHER NATURE.

Culture is the amalgamation of collective psyche of a large group of people sharing a common identity.Since the dawn of Indus valley civilization, Indian culture comprised a sense of unity,interaction and well being.Since then, many ethnic groups have come into the sub-continent with their distinct way of living and has been integrated into the whole Indian culture with individual identity and manifesting that the only thing constant is change. The airport envisions a future “NOW” where human civilization is a multi-planetary species. It has colonies on Mars and Moon and also sub-colonies in the form of space stations. The scale of traveling has changed drastically and countries are closer to each other than ever. India is on the avant-garde of technology, innovation and embraces its age-old culture of “Atithi Devo bhava” meaning “guests are like God”.
It creates a blend of private and public life and envisions everyone in a collective narrative.
It is a gateway to the unknown and mysterious vastness of space. Its goal is to keep reminding us is what actually makes us human so that we don’t get lost in our constant search for the unknown.
