320_Ali Hazem and Abdallah Kamhawi: Kaira Looro Peace Pavilion

Submission #320 | Ali Hazem and Abdallah Kamhawi: Kaira Looro Peace Pavilion — “Our goal was to use the light as a language to tell the history of the war and the journey to peace, and make the visitors not only see it but feel it. From darkness to light, from disruption to tranquility. TOWARD THE LIGHT pavilion features a long path that starts with an uncomfortable dim, tall and thin entrance to emulate the effect of war and gradually widen and shorten in height to eventually become a serene comfortable contemplation space that emulates peace and calmness.”

300_Matteo Serra, Mirko Santoni, Andrea Ruggieri: Kaira Kora

Submission #300 | Matteo Serra, Mirko Santoni, Andrea Ruggieri: Kaira Kora — “The Griot safeguards the community’s tradition that is conserved through the usage of the words. This poet’s tale is accompanied by an instrument called “Kora”. A sacred place should play a similar role and become the “Instrument of Worship”. The project’s aim lies in the belief that a single holy place can host different religions (muslims, catholics and animists), a single instrument able to emit different notes of a same chord, a peace’s harp: Kaira Kora.”

267_Elise Francis: Santuario alle Edicole Votive

Submission #267 | Elise Francis: Santuario alle Edicole Votive — “Secret Genoa waits patiently to be discovered. Over an eight-month period I have endeavored to explore Genoa’s well-kept (and sometimes unkempt) treasures. My design methodology is an architectural form of narrative collage inspired by the writing of Italo Calvino and Bruno Schulz. The city is understood as a dense space of intertwined and overlapping stories that can be (re)written using alternative narratives that reveal essential qualities of the city without relying on what may be considered strictly factual.”

261_Leetee Wang and Marianne Sanche: Church of AI

Submission #261 | Leetee Wang and Marianne Sanche: Church of AI — “A contemplation of reciprocity between automation and human intervention. This architectural series was formed, at first, by 2D imagery generated via online AI tools, then designed as 360 interior spaces. It explores hybridization of automated and subjective input to produce a cybernetic reality in which constructed space is transient – in a constant state of building and unbuilding.”

205_Paulina Hurtado: Narrows Pavilion

Submission #205 | Paulina Hurtado: Narrows Pavilion — "Narrows pavilion is a social platform that works as a living organism introducing the subject into a portal that addresses space as the expression of scenery.  The pavilion explores the idea of implied functionality. Something that might happen but doesn’t have a fixed definition. For instance, it is a space for exhibitions, but it is not a museum; it is a space with scenographic features for performances, but it is not a theater; it is a space for dinning and social encounter, but it is not a cafe nor a restaurant."

Submission #102 | James Brillon and Alexander Van Odom: Restructuring the Bronx — The project reconciles the infrastructural cuts that have separated the Bronx from its waterfront over the past 100 years.

All the unit cores are very densely placed near the perimeter to allow for more sunlight and cross ventilation."

Andrea Bulloni, Matteo Ciabattini, Alice Gardella, Paolo Grotteschi: Landcraft Academy — We are nowadays facing a new way of living, we are surrounded and iper-stimulated by thousand of images and stuff, and their “life” is getting everyday shorter.
