CityVision Architecture Competition is an annual competition held by the homonymous magazine of architecture CityVision Magazine that invites architects, designers, students, artists and creatives to develop urban and visionary proposals with the aim of stimulating new ideas for the contemporary city.
All through innovative ideas and methodologies that can improve the connection between the historical, contemporary and future city vocation, thus promoting a positive evolution of the critical architectural historiography.
Globalization, environmental concerns, new economic and cultural politics, adaptability to the existing context combined with the use of vibrant ideas, original technologies and new softwares for representation are some of the key elements that should be taken into account to formulate the most original project proposal.
New York CityVision is the fourth international ideas competition launched by CityVision. The competition wants you to imagine New York in its future if the manipulation of the urban context and its architectural objects, joined with its inhabitants, will be influenced by SPACE and TIME.
The New York ideas will be judged by an international jury which will have as president Joshua Prince-Ramus, founder of the office REX and again Eva Franch i Gilabert, Roland Snooks, Shohei Shigematsu, Alessandro Orsini and Mitchell Joachim, all of whom are distingueshed by the large experimentation willingness in their work. Inside this issue you will have the opportunity to virtually meet some of them, their ideas and their philosophies and to have a look to their work’s images.
Now, we officially launch New York CityVision Competition! Let’s start with the proposals, we expect only to be surprised by your creativity!
