International design competition platform Volume zero has announced the results of The Dwelling 2023 Architecture Competition.
Humans traditionally have thrived on social dialogue creating communities based upon work, education, place of origin, etc. aligning interests, and a place for incubation of skills, values, and ideas fueling civilizations. These Communities play a pivotal role in defining the social fabric and embedding values and virtues by which an individual perceives the world outside this habitat.
The world is transforming at a breakneck speed putting a strain on our resources. In a quest for a better life, millions across the globe have been moving to cities every day. This has resulted in a rise in densely populated urban areas along with a lack of land resources and financial constraints to provide sufficient housing for the masses.
This phenomenon has led to a rise in innovation focusing on unconventional ideas like Smart Homes, Pod Houses, Social Housing, Co-Living Spaces, Tiny Houses, Micro Houses, Hostels, etc., making a home accessible to many and simultaneously helping achieve one’s aspiration. The concept of these revolutionary homes encouraged for making the innovation of maximum functional area in a minimum footprint, thus redefining the perception of Sustainability in urban dwellings. The Competition challenged its participants to come up with inventive and sustainable solutions for urban dwelling clusters. Participants were encouraged to create functional, aesthetically pleasing designs that cater to the personal and communal needs of its inhabitants. The proposed archetypes should address space constraints, maximize functionality, and reflect the cultural identity of the community.
