InDeSem 2011

23/02/2011 by architectural competitions


Do you want to take part in the InDeSem’11 workshop? If so, due to the limited amount of participants we can receive, we’ve cooked up a small assignment to prove your skill. Read below for more details.


Historically, built space has been a platform for social interaction. Nowadays, thanks to new means of communication such as Facebook, Second-life, Skype, etc. it’s possible to easily encounter with spatially distant people. It’s hard to deny that changes take place in our social behavior and the way we connect to other people.
But what’s the impact of new media onthe traditional public space?
How can you as an architect anticipate on the above-mentioned with physical or spatial tools? And how can architecture provide new ways of social interaction? Technology already brought us possibilities to contact each other virtually. Now it’s time to integrate these modern technologies in physical objects which will (re)connect our physical and virtual environment.


 Create a physical, architectonic intervention that connects the physical and virtual world. This addition to the public space has to create or contribute to social interaction. Advanced technology can help to provide social interaction, but creating new technological features is emphatically not the main goal ofthis assignment. Use a specific public space in your own city to illustrate your generic architectural design that links the physical and virtual world. Describe your solutions in words and images.
