We are excited to announce the results of the second edition of the Into the Rabbit Hole Design competition! Archiol organized this competition with the aim of pushing the boundaries of healing architecture design and inspiring architects and designers to explore innovative possibilities in architectural design. Our mission was to challenge conventional thinking and harness the power of imagination to create spaces that promote mental well-being.
In a world where mental health issues are on the rise, the need for imaginative solutions is more crucial than ever. Architects and designers play a vital role in shaping the built environment, and it is our duty to contribute to the betterment of people through our creative endeavors.
The Into the Rabbit Hole Design competition encouraged participants to think beyond the ordinary and explore new dimensions of architectural design. We urged contestants to break free from conditioned norms and use geometry and volume as their primary tools of expression to design a space—an "underland"—that could heal stressed living beings.
The response to this competition was overwhelming, with submissions pouring in from talented individuals around the world. The creativity, innovation, and passion displayed by all participants were truly inspiring. The designs we received were nothing short of extraordinary and demonstrated a deep understanding of the connection between architecture and mental well-being.
We are thrilled to announce the top three winners:
Yanyun Wang from China
SECOND PLACE Christeven Cohen & Lawrence Nobel from Indonesia
THIRD PLACE Martyna Skóra from Poland
We congratulate the winners and extend our appreciation to all participants for their dedication and creativity. To view the winning entries and explore the remarkable designs that emerged from this competition, please visit the Result Announcement.
