Beijing Cityvision Competition is the sixth international competition launched by Cityvision and it’s part of the annual programme 2014, Evolution: the architecture of future mankind.
The purpose of the competition is to provide a future vision of Beijing perceived as a Supercity (a unique one) that will absorb the best features from other cities (Satellites), assuming them as her own, and then reinvent itself in the form of a new – and unparalleled – model.
At the same time the competition’s goal is to imagine who will inhabit this Supercity and how will the evolution of its future inhabitants take place. Will there be a new species as a result of the new evolutionary phase following Homo sapiens?
Our line of “natural” evolution has probably come to an end with us, and in the future our kind will be the outcome of bio mechanical and technological hybridization that will initiate a new phase of evolution called Homo Vision.
Proposals must take into consideration the 3 scenarios described within the annual research – Evolution, Involution or Extinction – choosing one of them or combining.
As usual Cityvision Competition features an exceptional jury panel, this year composed by Ai Weiwei, as jury president, along with undisputed innovators in their architecture fields such as Greg Lynn, Sou Fujimoto, Eric De Broche des Combes and Sanford Kwinter.
