The aim of the “48h Floor Plan Battle” competition is to develop one drawing to communicate an architectural design. The participants are asked to draft one floor plan, with absolute freedom of interpretation, technique and level of abstraction. Even the concept of floor plan itself can be questioned in order to craft the most expressive way to represent the design.
This is a competition where the time limit is used to stimulate your creativity. The aim is to present a 48 hours response to the presented challenge, with a very strong focus on building function, creativity, criticality and innovation. Here you develop your skills as a communicator, designer and space thinker.
We are not interested in the construction details, we want to see the space organization. The drawing can highlight functional aspects of the building, showing a deep understanding of one or more design aspects. It can focus on the aesthetic qualities, experimenting and mastering a drawing technique with hyper-realistic outcomes, or it can be an optical deformation, a caricatural interpretation, a distant abstraction of the built architecture. The drawing can strengthen a conventional interpretation of architecture, or explore a new angle, a new point of view, intellectual and/or physical. The entry is completely flexible and adaptable to the participant’s interpretation.
Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually. Teams can be formed by a maximum number of 2 people. The registration fee is paid per team, regardless of how many members form it. Personal information of all the team members can be uploaded during the submission procedure of the final drawing.
The FLOOR PLAN BATTLE competition is in partnership with Act of Mapping, Archi.Boom, Beta Architecture, ShowItBetter, SupraOrder, Library Illustrazioni and The beauty of plan & The beauty of section.
