Lima is undergoing a continuous change even though its biggest contradiction remains unchanged: a three meters wall that runs over ten kilometers separates people of different social states. Thus, on one side of the wall, the barren landscape dominates, showing no green areas and only a few streets. This area is barely/rarely reached with water supply and electricity, and many small houses have been manually built, up to the top of the mountain. Conversely, on the other side of the wall luxury residences can be seen surrounded by thriving vegetation, in addition to pools, high rises and many infrastructures for
The world is growing at a break-neck speed today and with rapid urbanization, information and technology, it is demanding a constantly changing human intellect. To face these transformations, the upcoming generations need to be moulded in a way that they can cope efficiently with the variations. Education can help initiate this change by altering the mindsets and outlook of people around the world.
Over the last decades, education has evolved into a vital necessity for people belonging to all facets of the ever-changing world. An important agent of social change, education not only helps in molding young minds with values but also guides their intellectual development and boosts the society’s potential for its own
The FuturArc Prize 2019 asks you to investigate what it means to live in a hyper-dense city, one with no less than 100,000 people per square kilometre.
How can this be done? What is the right mix of activities and programmes? How does a new neighbourhood fit into the urban system-of-systems that already exists? What new systems does it bring into the picture? What does hyper-density look like? How does it feel to our senses?
THE TASK Select a site within your city that is approximately 1km2 in size.
Dedicated to advancing education by conducting research regarding architecture and design within the urban environment, Calgary’s Design Talks Institute (d.talks) has launched a ‘Call for Ideas’ to ‘improve the human aspect of mobility’ as part of the d.talks ‘2018 Movement’ program.

eVolo Magazine is pleased to invite architects, students, engineers, designers, and artists from around the globe to take part in the 2019 Skyscraper Competition. Established in 2006, the annual Skyscraper Competition is one of the world’s most prestigious awards for high-rise architecture. It recognizes outstanding ideas that redefine skyscraper design through the implementation of novel technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations along with studies on globalization, flexibility, adaptability, and the digital revolution.

Water – an element in nature that life is constantly surrounded by; an element that has given birth to life on Earth and continues to support it. Although we made our shift to land, our bond with water still remains significant as ever; it is an element that is a basic necessity for our survival. The life on Earth is today plagued by adverse climate changes, global warming, the increasing toxic emissions, rising population, and scarce land resources. With various countries, such as Holland , fighting rising water levels for decades and with the current trends, it is now time to brace ourselves against the unseen future and design solutions to cope with the ever-changing community on Planet Earth. Today, the discourse of ‘smart cities’ has overtaken every conversation discussing the future of architecture. It is a glaring question as to how are we going to address the equation between the contrasting aspects of ecological crises and technological advancement for building our futures. Covering 71% of the Earth, it is now time to look at the water again as a harbinger of life in the near future; a place where human life can again thrive in its original glory. Creating living spaces on water will soon become a need to survive as a “What happens in the Arctic, does not stay in the Arctic” Extract - Greenpeace report on melting ice in Arctic paradigms of nature.

1. Abstract: Food is one of the most fundamental elements of human existence. Looking back, the way we produce, store and consume food has evolved greatly. Humans have thrived because our ancestors learnt how to gather, produce and consume food, all with their bare hands. And mankind has sustained due to these crucial elements of knowledge passed through generations. With industrialization came mass production, and with mass production came an influx of consumers - who started paying instead. Skills and crafts related to agriculture and food production are now mostly obsolete in the urbane environment. Mass consumerism through supermarkets and even
The Union of Moscow architects invites professionals to the participation in The Open Architectural and Town-planning Competition “The Activation of the Kazan City Urban Functions in the Water Area of the Volga Bend”. Kazan is a large city in the Volga region with a picturesque landscape and a rich variety of coastal zones. The embankment in a complex with a river facade forms the river gate to the city. However, inefficient use in combination with various unfavourable factors leads to the isolation of the coastal zones from the city itself and turns them – instead of being potential points of attraction
The call for ideas considers water landscapes, specifically rivers, as mediators in the formation of a harmonic and dynamic balance between cities and nature. a river restoration approach (considering fluvial geomorphology) should be adopted in order to “re-enliven the river” and as a lens from which to reinforce and understand natural systems for design adaptation. The competition focuses on the Andalién river, the settlements it crosses and proposed growth areas in zones of risk and ecological value. The competition seeks urbanism proposals, across scales (from bay to river basin and back to one of 3 strategic sites) which challenge business-as-usual and
