Observatory House Call for Entries

Italian Exhibition Group and the Italian government launched the Observatory Houses project aiming to find a new use for Roccascalegna taking advantage of the potential of an oneiric setting with remarkable skies. The project aims at creating in Italy the first and most suggestive observatory houses. They will be a sustainable and exclusive house model aimed to ensure the protection and improvement of such inestimable heritage.

How to build a complex of modern observatory houses in a picturesque medieval fortress? How to create the most refined national reference for the astronomical observation tourism through architecture?

On the bases of these issues, designers will have to create a story composed by stars, silences and landscapes. This story will have to include architectural elements designed to create a place beyond compare. It will not be a place of mere observation or accommodation; it will be a place of spirituality and meditation. Observatory Houses wishes to promote an architectural intervention that aims at becoming a symbol destination for those who wish to move away from their everyday routine and live an archaic, almost mystic experience thanks to the most ancient and beautiful sight.

Under everlasting skies, the new observatory houses in the ancient fortress will provide an unforgettable stay for those who wish to experience the feral excitement to fall asleep under the stars rocked by the slow movement of planets and fascinated by a sudden shooting star.

YAC thanks all the designers who will take part in this challenge.

Deadline July 26th, 2017.

Border studies: open call for Dnipropetrovsk poster pop-up

The Shuba Design Conference, taking place in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk (Dnipro), has launched an open call for entries for its Border Studies poster competition.

In their posters entrants are invited to explore the nature of borders, their volatility and impact on daily life. Submissions should reflect on borders from one of three critical perspectives:

1.Invisible borders

Invisible but intellectually tangible boundaries that separate people, communities, and societies, creating unity or becoming the basis for conflict.

2. Moving borders

Territorial, geographical, and political boundaries; crisis and border redefinition; disputed territories; positions between the borders; and a borderless world.

3. Overlapping borders

The borders of ideas and concepts; cultural and metaphorical limits, including imaginary boundaries in the real world and the real limits of imaginary worlds, as well as their transformation and destruction.

Submission are open until 14 May. The posters will be showcased as a pop-up exhibition at the Shuba Design Conference from 27 – 28 May.
