Open Call: Public Space during COVID 19
“The Urban Rhetoric” is a bi-annual initiative by Innovature Research and Design Studio [IRDS] to create a platform for discussion and act as a catalyst in recreating the future of urbanism and urban development in India. We aim to do so with the help of an academic magazine with essays that inspire the agenda for future urbanism. A city is not just defined by the planners and architects that build it, but also by the users that occupy it. Thus, through this initiative, we strive to make these parallels meet by reinforcing the interactions between decision-makers and users. This prospective magazine crusading towards the agenda for future urbanism aims to provide a platform for dialogue and discussions on growth and development in Indian cities.
In the light of current COVID-19 pandemic, The Urban Rhetoric is organizing an ideas competition. The candidates have to express their idea of public places; like markets, streets, eateries, gardens, malls, etc in the context of the new norms like social distancing and sanitization, imposed by the pandemic. Candidates can express their ideas through mediums like photographs, sketches, illustrations, art pieces, etc.
We invite all creative individuals like artists, architects, designers, photographers, illustrators, urban designers, etc to submit photographs/illustrations/sketches/art pieces representing public space during COVID 19.
