Published by Analist Group and organized and curated by the Italian Association of Architecture and Criticism_presS/Tfactory, the OUTSIDE THE BOX competition is focused on identifying design ideas for resolving various problems in emergency situations. During recent years, numerous natural phenomena have upset the lives of many communities scattered across the globe. Examples include Fukushima in Japan, Haiti, L’Aquila and New Orleans. The Box is a small temporary structure capable of offering various services: a space that is simultaneously a workstation and information center open to public to allow people remain in touch with the rest of the world. A fundamental role in the elaboration of the design proposal must be entrusted to technology, whether low- or high-tech. The challenge launched by the competition is to combine sustainability and parametric design. The submission deadline is 15 January, 2012. More information on the competition after the break.

The jury of the first stage will select ten projects. Among them, the jury of the second stage will proclaim the three winners of the competition. First prize is 10.000 dollars, second prize is 4.000 dollars and third prize is 3.000 dollars. Moreover there will be a popular jury award of 5.000 dollars; anybody could view and express a preference about the ten projects selected and published on the contanima site in order to contribute to award the prize of the popular jury. Analist Group will provide 10.000 dollars for the realization of a model of the winning project.
