What is a skyscraper in the 21st century? What are the historical, contextual, social, urban, and environmental responsibilities of these mega-structures? The competition is an investigation on the public and private space and the role of the individual and the collective in the creation of a dynamic and adaptive vertical community. It is also a response to the exploration and adaptation of new habitats and territories based on a dynamic equilibrium between man and nature - a new kind of responsive and adaptive design capable of intelligent growth through the self-regulation of its own systems.
Rome Collective Living Challenge
International
Registration: April 19th 2019 Submission Deadline: June 6th 2019
For the Rome Collective Living Challenge, participants are tasked with designing a concept for affordable housing in Rome that fits the ideals of a co-living lifestyle. This competition is a chance for architecture enthusiasts to conceive an entirely new way of living, one that experiments with the concept of low-income housing as a collective. Rather than rolling out hundreds of new tiny apartments in Rome's city centre, collective living could offer something more than just an affordable place to live; a community to live in within the hustle and bustle of Italy's capital.
