Micro Housing 2019 Architecture Competition invites you to rethink and reimagine the idea of urban dwellings and come up with inventive solutions to the persistent issues of space crunch and growing population in our cities.

Since the beginning of time, a HOME has continued to be an entity that is intimate to all living beings on the planet. Apart from being a physical shelter for humans and their daily lives, a home forms a distinct, intimate connection with its users.

Today, across the globe, we are experiencing a rise in densely populated urban areas, along with a lack of land resources to provide sufficient housing for the masses. This phenomenon has given rise to a new movement of Micro-Housing; one that commands the idea of simple but inventive living in today’s urban areas.

Plugin Housing Challenge - Towards a more efficient future of housing

Humankind has lived and worked primarily in rural areas. But now, more than half of the globe's population, will be living in towns and cities.

Bauhaus Neue – Framing future of design education

PREMISE

There are moments in history when a confluence of ideas, people, and broader cultural and technological forces creates a spark. Sometimes the spark amounts to nothing more than a flicker. But if conditions are right, it can erupt into a dazzling, brilliant light that, while burning for only a brief moment, changes the world around it.

The Bauhaus was one of these – a place that despite the economic turmoil and cultural conservatism of the world around it, offered a truly radical, international and optimistic vision of the future. The origins of the Bauhaus lie in the late 19th century, in

Switching Prisons - Rethinking correctional facilities in context of tomorrow

OVERVIEW

The definition of crime is culturally subjective. This subjectivity used to help us define law and punishment in a more rational manner in the past. Today, this subjectivity placed against pacing time and increasing globalization is not easy to rationalize anymore.

MANIFESTO
Books undisputedly play an unparalleled role in shaping the destinies of both individuals and societies alike and nothing guides man more effectively than books. However, it is a sad reflection that amongst other positive social values the culture of reading has also persistently been declining across the world.

To revive the diminishing reading culture what we immediately need is to re-interpret the image of a reading
