Competition > 'Amphibious Habitats' Design Competition and Exhibition

277Amphibious-Habitats-Newsslider.jpg

LOBBY magazine is calling for imaginative architectural proposals by creative minds everywhere for our international design competition, 'Amphibious Habitats'. We're looking for unique, bizarre and visionary projects that challenge the very distinction between land and sea, dry and wet. These architectural 'artefacts' should act on this threshold—neither purely marine nor land, instead both at the same time. The proposals should establish innovative ways to understand and appropriate the often undefined and always changing space between these two natures.

The architectural artefacts must respond to topographic conditions, whether real or imagined: rocky cliffs, sandy beaches, volcanic tide pools, coral reefs, Icelandic or equatorial shorelines, imposing sea banks. These objects will promote new ways to understand the land-sea binomial, engaging its users in original and unexpected ways. Shortlisted proposals will be showcased in an exhibition in the Spanish coastal city of Málaga.

Submission deadline: 6 February
Exhibition and announcement of prizes: 31 March
