Boun - Urbanscape Symbiosis

Boun - Urbanscape Symbiosis

As our future megacities are defining themselves every day with bustling streets and soaring skyscrapers, a city still craves for many things but mostly - an identity. The 21st century from its onset is rapidly changing how we live and how we perceive the definitions of a city rampantly.

‘Urbanscape’ is the manifestation of the built environment of cities. It not only refers to the configuration of built forms but also the elements that define interstitial spaces. However, what we see today is the progression of ever-increasing skyscrapers that dominate the memories of a city, overpowering smaller elements.


Urbanscape: Symbiosis is a step forward that seeks to bind the concept of urban identity and the furniture that speak for the city. It aims at creating elements that connect the dots to reveal the identity of a city.

The challenge here is creating a family of furniture for the desired city with common features in concept / form / color / design

that needs to be derived from the city into consideration. The location of these furnitures also matter by analyzing key spots where not only these could look meaningful but be meaningful as well.

The goal of this competition is to give birth to furniture concepts that sprout from the city’s identity instead of industrial convenience. This would be possible in the following three steps: 1. Choose a town/city, 2. Create a concept family of furniture from the category, 3. Photograph your city spaces and place them to establish a link between them.
