MiG Prize 2023

This year's MiG challenge reflects on Moshe Safdie's statement "I want my buildings to take root and look as if they've always been there. It isn't about pastiche or adapting what's already there. It's about trying to blend the future and the past."
This difficult task raises the problematics of the site within the framework of the glocal - a term coined in the 1990s to think about globaliזation dialectically, as an interdependent process of integration and diversification, in which the local is shaped by the global, but also that locality becomes ever more important either as resistance or as a motor of innovation.
In light of recent developments such as the worldwide pandemic, climate crisis, and the fracturing of the international political order, it is time to reconsider the agency of the local. The 2023 MIG prize challenge is to rethink how the local is redefined by these worldwide challenges through cooperative and confrontational interaction with other localities and scales of reference.
The proposed project should make a clear statement in regards to the status of locality in its different material, environmental, cultural and social aspects as it adapts to inflows and outflows of people, ideas, memories, technologies, resources, natures and capital, and test its architectural implications in the design of a building that is both rooted in the place's past and proposes a vision of a possible future.
The project must be detailed to the scale of a building (i.e. 1:100 or 1:200) and include an explanation of the ideology behind the design. The design must address the well-being of the users and respect the surrounding environment of the proposed projects.

In this year's competition we seek to critically explore what sustainability means both within the industry and education, and we want to receive contributions that offer a wealth of suggestions and thoughts around current practices and narratives.
