Laka Competition 2017: Architecture that Reacts

Laka Competition 2017: Architecture that Reacts

We invite designers from around the world to submit their ideas of architecture that reacts. That means architecture which is able to respond and adjust dynamically to the current needs and circumstances. These circumstances are often unpredictable, but their consequences can be crucial. The architecture that reacts is the architecture that lives as a living organism since it responds to the external stimuli and develops because of it.

  • Alexander Rieck (Architect, Researcher, Co-Founder of LAVA Laboratory For Visionary Architecture)
