Call For Non Urban Ideas-2021
Ideas may spring from any concern, be it socio-cultural, socio-political, or socio-economic by finding expression in the spatial relationships between communities and their resources – land, water, forest, or settlements. Specifically, it is a call to examine the relationships such as (but not limited to) between rural communities and:
# Customary practices (agriculture, animal husbandry, forestry, fishing, and craft)
# Environmental preservation and unsustainable industrial practices.
# The production and consumption capacity in the non urban.
# Social diversities, identity, and hierarchies.
# Migration: Causes, impacts, and implications on non urban areas.
# Design and planning methods and practices that are currently dominated by urban
perspectives and biases, and/or
# The role of infrastructure (whether social, physical, and/or technological, is enabling
or enslaving the rural inhabitants for whom it is intended.)
Nonurbanism, in collaboration with Mango Architecture, is pleased to invite architects, students, engineers, designers, and artists from around the globe to take part in the ‘Call for Nonurban ideas 2021’. It recognizes outstanding ideas that address the nonurban half of the world: the people living in urban-peripheral small towns and rural areas. Here, we would like you to generate proposals that focus on the strengths of communities, upholding the dignity of humanity, and avoiding existent urban biases.
