Login Gate competition

open international design competition

consegna entro il 29 maggio 2016

Concorso internazionale di idee per la progettazione dell'ingresso del parco pubblico del Comune di Järfälla a 20 minuti dal centro di Stoccolma. I progettisti sono invitati a immaginare nuovi modi di vivere il parco per un pubblico che sembra ormai socializzare solo sui social media.

The Login Gate competition is an open international design competition

The public park in Sweden has for decades been one of the central social structures. It was the place where your parents probably met, where they went out to dance or just spend their free time.

In the 80's these kinds of parks were largely replaced by socializing while shopping, and today this type of community building takes place on the internet.

One could argue that today's shopping districts and social media have replaced the basic functions of the Folkets Park, but does that mean that we can no longer envision public space away from computers and consumption? Is there a way to revive and update the social benefits of the public park into a model for our current screen epoch? And how would we enter such a place?

While designing the entrances to this imaginary 21st century Folkets Park, designers will be encouraged to think of ways one can revisit a public space, for a public that seems largely glued to their screen. Would the entrance be in fact on their screen, or might it provide functions that manage to capture the imagination of a public saturated by social media?

Eligibility

All graduates from architecture, design or social media studies are eligible to enter the competition. The competition is anonymous.
