Non Architecture Competition: FUTURE PUBLIC SPACE is now open for entries!

Registration date:


Submission date:




Non Architecture (NonA) recently has announced " FUTURE PUBLIC SPACE", one of the Non Architecture “Living Together” competitions, with aim to come up with visionary concepts for an alternative public space that embraces today’s challenges.

Future Public Space is part of the “Cities of Tomorrow” competition series, developed to reimagine urban life through a variety of creative design concepts and ideas. What kind of role can we play as designers in reimagining urban life? How can we produce new inspiring visions to trigger a discussion around alternative models of urban living?

Considering the most recent events, how will we live the public space together? What new uses can a future public space incorporate? How should design approach and deal with these issues?

Submission can address some of the questions above. The proposal submitted could be a device, piece of furniture, pavilion, building, urban plan or something different. Scale of intervention, program dimensions, and location are not given, and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their design.

Projects can provide a dystopian vision but they must emphasize key design issues.

Participants are asked to propose conceptual ideas for the public space that will populate our future cities. You need to send only 2 drawings, absolute freedom of scale, site or program.

The Winners will be announced from 21 – 25 December.
