Competition Introduction

The pandemic has proven to be a test of the relationship between humans and architecture, lockdown – the experience of living within the four walls. How has architecture affected your mind during the lockdown? What are stressed architectural spaces? What was the state of your mind as you were locked down? This pandemic has created an increased urgency to strengthen mental health care. We also realized the importance of the role of architecture in mental health.

This competition challenges you to explore imagination to design architectural spaces that can heal the human mind. Architects and designers are responsible for the well-being of people. So let’s get creative and develop solutions for this urgent issue faced by humanity.
We expect ideas and design development beyond conditioned thinking.
Nothing is unreal!

“The first step is to establish that something is possible. Then probability will occur.”
– Elon Musk

We expect:
To break the banality of healing architecture designs and test extreme possibilities in architectural design.
Think outside the box. Don’t even consider the box ever existed. Create your geometry, your volume, and an underland of your own. An architectural space healing stressed human beings.
Everything starts with imagination.

Keywords:
• Rabbit Hole: A complexly bizarre state or situation conceived as a hole into which one falls or descends.
• Design the underland: How architecture can help address mental health, architectural intervention into stressed spaces.
• Imagination: Use your imagination to convert negative experiences into architectural healing.

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will get you everywhere..”
– Albert Einstein.
