Adaptable Futures

Open call for an international student competition. The deadline is extended to 10 June 2012. Megumi Matsubara is one of the six members of the jury.

This competition asks you to illustrate how the life of your building will unfold through time – over an hour, day, year, decade, or perhaps a century. Your submission should demonstrate the integration of time in your design proposal by highlighting how it will accommodate the different types of change described in the competition brief. We seek innovative design proposals that challenge existing orthodoxies about adaptability in the built environment. The awards comprise of cash prizes (1st prize UK £1,500, 2nd Prize £1000, 3rd prize £500); publication of the top entries in the upcoming Adaptable Futures book and an opportunity to present at our autumn conference in London. Outstanding submissions will also be published here on the Adaptable Futures website.

Jury: Charles Holland (Director, FAT architecture), Daisy Froud (Director, AOC), Megumi Matsubara (co-Founder, Assistant), David Rowley (Director, Nightingale Associates), Søren Nielsen (Director, Vandkunsten), Paul Warner (Director, 3D Reid Architects)
