With similar creative attitude the participants are urged to create an artefact, merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. The proposal can be a device, a piece of furniture, an interior design project, a pavilion, a building or a urban plan. scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.
