Thinking – 7th Non Architecture Competition

Non Architecture Competitions is accepting entries in their 7th international design competition — Thinking — dedicated to alternative designs for offices.

The aim of the “thinking” competition is to develop a design proposal for the office typology, intended as a space to process, organize and generate information. In other words, a place for mental work.

Within this context, with critical thinking and creative attitude, the participants are urged to create an artifact, 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 an urban plan. The scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.

Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually.

About Non Architecture

Non Architecture Competitions is an initiative pointed at finding and bringing forward these valuable alternative proposals. It practically consists in a series of nine competitions, organized in a time frame of three years. All competitions have their focus on finding innovative approaches to a specific architecture topic, always related to a functional issue. Emphasis is always pointed to non-traditional, and therefore non-architectural approaches to the architect’s work.
