1) FuturArc Prize 2014 | Water and the City
The brief for FuturArc Prize 2014 calls for a new vision of water in the city. At the building scale this may take the form of new typologies for sourcing, storage and recycling; or it may call a rethink of existing typologies such as homes and offices. At the urban scale, it might manifest itself through new networks or infrastructure that deal with flows and loops. The goal is in part sufficiency (therefore survival); it is also the well-being of settlements and the ecological systems that we depend on. Each entry shall make a case for how the proposal, through replicability, represents a strategic idea for a sustainable Asian city. Site selection is at the entrant’s discretion and should be explained clearly in the submission. Only sites in Asia and Australia will be accepted.FuturArc Prize is open to both Students and Professionals.
