Future Architecture Call for Ideas is greater than a contest; it’s a platform, offering practitioners and conceptual thinkers with the chance to precise their concepts and to be each seen and heard. A profitable utility would imply the chance to start exchanging your initiatives and proposals with friends from all around the world, in addition to with high-profile establishments together with museums, galleries, publishing homes, biennials and festivals, all to help you with discovering avenues towards worldwide recognition. Apply, and let the Future Architecture platform help you in elevating and sharpening your follow.

This 12 months, we’re inviting multi-disciplinary rising professionals from all around the globe to use with transformative initiatives associated to our constructed environments. Ship us your accomplished initiatives, your theoretical or conceptual propositions for spatial, social or cultural innovation, and be a part of our dialogue concerning the Landscapes of Care.

We welcome initiatives that handle systemic change (prototypes and methods), site-specific instances (initiatives personalized and tailored for sure contexts and duties) and new alliances (cross-, trans- and multi-disciplinary initiatives exploring new design processes and methodologies).

Landscapes of Care

Up to date societies face dynamically altering challenges. The extractive and consumptive logics of the system create globalised points, impacting totally different areas in actual time. Geopolitical boundaries shield financial returns above and past defending social pursuits whereas the latest pandemic spreads, and new territories and ecologies are rearranged in accordance with logics of migration that are inextricably related to the circulation of monetary wealth. Confronting this state of affairs, new regional initiatives query political divisions and company pursuits. Fluid boundaries traced by native organisers and residents emerge to fill the areas as but un-commodified by the free market; areas of exception free from the management of coverage. The circulation of individuals generates new modes of neighbourhood residing and political commitments that demand care, empathy and consciousness of the opposite.

The latest well being disaster has challenged total societies, demonstrating how they will successfully, quickly and largely peacefully take motion. Designers, architects and urbanists see themselves dealing with social and political points, moderately than merely the spatial and formal features of a venture; dealing with as much as the problem of reworking a long time of self-complacency into energetic practices coping with the politics of relations, of native communities, of power flows, and of ever-changing city dynamics.

“Landscapes of Care”, the theme proposed by dpr-barcelona, chosen by the members of FA platform and additional developed with CAFx, for the 2021 version of Future Architecture Platform will discover the dynamics of solidarity and collective self-organisation, the networks of belief working on the neighbourhood scale, and transitional widespread areas and actions. The version goals to set off dialogues across the challenges of a society dealing with as much as the myths of infinite progress, the glorification of borders and nationwide id, and the hardships labelled as austerity by capitalism.
