Architecture Competition: Videogame Architecture

Two drawings, a crazy new level or a building in real life, your choice!

SUMMARY //
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.

BRIEF IN SHORT //
Participants are asked to either design a new building/level within the context of an existing videogame or translate their favorite videogame into a real-life building. Make sure you understand the videogame you’re working on and what are the strong logics behind it and turn them into a tool to design your own architecture piece -only 2 drawings, absolute freedom of scale, or program.

ELIGIBILITY //
Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually. The registration fee is paid per team, regardless of how many members form it. Personal information of all the team members can be uploaded during the submission procedure of the final drawing.
THE REGISTRATION FEE IS PER TEAM – MAX. 4 PEOPLE PER TEAM.
