Eligibility:

Designregio Kortrijk is looking for 3 highly motivated and recently graduated designer-makers or creative artists to join in a regional residency program in Kortrijk, Belgium.
The Designers in Residence Kortrijk program is a 3-month full time working residency from October 2021 to January 2022.

- accommodation
- monthly fee (400€/month)
- usage of Budalab Open Makerspace
- experts in several domains and support of Designregio Kortrijk
- one-time travel expenses

This year's theme is: The future of Urban Nature

Urban and Nature are often depicted as a dichotomy as if they are two opposites, one excluding the other.
A mid-sized city such as Kortrijk has a high percentage of open spaces in its city center.
We ask to the Designers in Residence 2021 to deepen our understanding of the relation Urban Nature in the City of Kortrijk.
Can this be interpreted as a co-existence? Can it be made operational to tackle the major challenges cities are facing? What interventions and projects can result out of this interpretation? Or is Nature in the end a man-made construct that needs to be rethought?

jumpthegap® Roca International Design Competition

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

jumpthegap®, Roca’s international design competition, has always had a forward-looking approach, seeking to promote the creativity and talent of students and professionals to devise creative, innovative and radical products through a multidisciplinary and intercultural vision.

However, the concept of the future has now changed. We are currently facing different challenges as individuals and as a society. Some of them are unexpected, such as those caused by the pandemic. Others are of growing and vital importance, such as preserving the planet we live on, supporting its diversity, or fighting poverty and hunger…

jumpthegap® has also evolved to adapt and promote actions and proposals that respond more directly to these challenges, searching for ideas and solutions for today, with a truly social, inclusive and sustainable approach. Not only because climate change and the global pandemic will transversely affect the entire planet, but because there are other major challenges that society will have to face in the next few years, which are contained in the 2030 agenda proposed by the United Nations.

jumpthegap® is committed to supporting new generations of designers and architects, and offers them an international platform to develop and showcase their talent. Now, more than ever, we believe that this talent can show real, innovative solutions to share with society and allow us to build a better future.

umpthegap®aims to be one of the major agents proposing solutions to the challenges included in the 2030 agenda, thanks to the participation of professionals from the architecture and design sectors in the competition.

For this reason, the 2021 edition will not end with the awards ceremony, but will continue during 2022 with panel discussions and analyses, as its ideas and solutions provide inspiration for some of the challenges facing our planet and our society.

The bathroom, in the broadest sense, becomes the centralizing space for different human uses and needs, both physical and emotional, which define us and position us in the world.

In this sense, we ask participants to design a product or service that:

responds to any of the topics listed in the categories below, providing enough added value when compared with existing solutions

relies on currently available materials and technologies

is aligned with one or more Sustainable Development Goals included in the 2030 agenda

Prize summary: 
17000 euros
Prizes Details: 

There are 4 prizes of 2.000€ for the winner of each category.

There are 8 prizes of 500€ for the 1st and 2nd runner up of each category.

There is 1 prize of 5.000€ for the best of the best project, selected from the winners of each of the 4 categories

Bivouac

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

What tools could enable us to develop new paradigms to respond to the social, political, economic or ecological changes awaiting our cities? How can we do this in a context of depletion of natural resources, climate change or social and demographic fractures? New balances between individual needs, social projects and available resources must be imagined. BIVOUAC wishes to reflect on the diversity of these energies which seek to question current rules and habits, to find innovative ideas that will emerge from this troubled period.

Scheduled from June 4 to 27, 2021, BIVOUAC will offer the public the opportunity to immerse themselves in the 50,000 m2 of La Rasude in Lausanne to discover works created on site, in dialogue with the place. The call for projects is open until January 31, 2021 and is addressed to all artists, architects and anyone working on urban issues.

Visits to the Rasude site are organized on December 10, 15 and 22 at 2 and 4 pm and on January 12 and 14 at 10 am.

Think Nonument! Together

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Architects! Artists! Researchers! Art Historians! Activists! Writers! Photographers!

For the last two years, the Nonument Group has researched and intervened into the changed circumstances of twentieth-century architecture and monuments. We defined nonuments as twentieth-century architecture, monuments, public spaces and infrastructural projects that have lost or undergone a shift in symbolic meaning as a consequence of political and social changes. We unveiled a wealth of stories from the past, physical remains and intangible traces, as well as many absurdities of the present, unseen ideological forces and newly formed fascinations.

The neologism Nonument denotes negation; but there are as many ways to negate an existing structure as there are possible affirmations of it. Sometimes both can be present at the same time, for example in a case of a botched renovation project or a misguided fetishization of a ruin. But a fact remains that our cultural bias is leaning toward the affirmative action: predominantly we research what is built, what is articulated and what is planned. However, we lack the resources and concepts to reveal the same vividness in the negation: of what was abandoned, discarded, destroyed or recontextualised.

First two years of The Nonument project were an attempt to breach this bias. We have opened a field of inquiry that doesn’t only observe and depict decaying architecture (there is an abundance of such websites and projects around) but also critically engages with the past and the present of these objects and the stories that lurk behind. In a way, a nonument is always more about the now than it is about the past. We want to address commodification, fetishization and destruction of memory, public spaces and buildings, as much as we want to engage with their histories. But now, it is time to reflect and regroup. And, above all, to ask others what they think. We want to offer an opportunity to publish reflections and interventions on nonuments and spatial negations that might have escaped our radar or that can enrich and change our initial concepts and queries. Such questions might include but are not limited to:

When have the buildings of the past became consummerable and when have they become unwanted?

How to react on fetishization of ruins and decay?

Is it possible to meaningfully intervene into nonuments at all?

How to deal with the plurality and even conflicts of different memories?

How does the relation between materiality, politics and economics manifest in nonuments?

How does the nonument you know intimately change the perception of nonuments as a whole?

 

We welcome a wide range of contributions:

- In-depth research papers (2.500-5.000 words) that will be considered for our annual Nonument symposium

- Opinion articles (500-1.000 words) which will be published online, with a honorarium of 80-150 eur

- Recommendations for publishing new nonuments and case studies

We are looking forward to think Nonument! with you.
