About the program/Scholarship:
Non Architecture is inviting your to take part in Meta-City competition. As in 2020 we started the second phase of competitions to address the issues of tomorrow. In line with our style we propose 9+2 themes – eleven critical topics to work on. Rather than a program, a research ecosystem composed of various competitions running in parallel and exploring the same theme from different perspectives. Our exploration journey will continue with theme five: VIRTUAL.
Participants are asked to design a visionary concept for an urban block that responds to the requirements of the metaverse environment and one axonometric projection to represent it, with absolute freedom of interpretation, technique and level of abstraction. Even the concept of axonometric itself can be questioned in order to craft the most expressive way to represent the design.
About Non Architecture:
We imagined a counterpart, a “Non architecture”. A world of unexplored designs and countless possibilities, that if found, could enlarge and change permanently the boundaries of Architecture. A universe of chances and opportunities never challenged by architects before.
