YARCH X-Change 2014
YARCH-WORKSHOP is in the delightful position to invite architects, students, designers and artists from around the world to take part in the YARCH 2014 X-Change Competition. The annual YArch competition recognizes outstanding ideas that redefine architectural design and construction through the implementation of new technologies, construction techniques, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations along with studies on globalization and adaptability. It is a forum that examines the relationship between architecture and the city, the built-environment and the un-built-environment, and the new-city and the old-city.
The participants should take into consideration the advances in materials and construction techniques, and the establishment of new urban and architectural methods to solve economic, social, and cultural problems of the contemporary city.The competition is an investigation on the cultural exchange within a space and the role of the individual and the community in the creation of a dynamic and adaptive city.
There are no restrictions in regards to site, program or size. The objective is to provide freedom to the participants to engage the project with the only constraints of the structure to be able to be constructed in the duration of two-weeks. What is a spatial cultural exchange? What are the historical, contextual, social, urban, and environmental responsibilities of these structures?
YARCH-WORKSHOP is committed to continue stimulating the imagination of Young Architects around the world – thinkers that initiate a new architectural discourse of economic, environmental, intellectual, and perceptual responsibility that could ultimately modify what we understand as a spatial cultural exchange, furthermore its impact on urban planning and on the improvement of our way of life.
