Can Architecture foster growth and harmony while revering the Environment?

As conscientious designers, our designs should tread lightly on the earth as they make a statement. The 17th year of Transparence encourages you to celebrate Nation Building through your designs and ideas. We look forward to holistic solutions on buildings that foster growth and harmony such as socio-cultural institutions, libraries, institutions for health and well-being, nature interpretation centres, ecological field stations, scientific learning or anthropological research premises, museums and beyond. Students and Colleges (through their studios) are encouraged to question the permanence of architecture and design by exploring responsive and reversible buildings. Your design should aim at carbon and energy neutrality by generating a positive impact on the environment and biodiversity at the site.

Lean and light is an approach to the construction process that increases the project value by reducing waste of resources, time, and work. Many experts have hinted at lean construction systems being the future in the building industry. For many leading firms across the world, the light and sustainable approach represents a smart business practice and social responsibility at the same time.

Architectural Competition

about

Architectural Competition

Through its evolution over several centuries and the desire to leave a mark, architecture tends towards permanence, often ignoring the actuality of the physical world and the current challenges. When a building has been unoccupied or abandoned, do we consider its lifespan to have ended? What do we do with the materials- demolish the structure and let it go to waste or reuse and repurpose the materials as well as the structure itself? How do we build structures that are reversible, or rather think of their afterlives? What is temporality in architecture?
