d3 natural systems 2016

concorso di idee

iscrizioni entro il 1° agosto | consegna entro il 15 agosto 2016

È aperta la partecipazione al concorso bandito ogni anno dall'organizzazione newyorkese d3 per invitare architetti, ingegneri, designer e studenti ad esplorare l'influenza che la natura può avere sull'architettura, l'urbanistica, l'interior design e sul design di oggetti.

L'edizione 2016 del concorso invita a presentare proposte innovative capaci di promuovere la sostenibilità attraverso lo studio delle geometrie, dei flussi e dei comportamenti presenti in natura.

d3, a New York-based design stewardship organization announces d3 Natural Systems competition inviting architects, designers, engineers, and students to collectively explore the potential of analyzing, documenting, and deploying nature-based influences in architecture, urbanism, interiors, and designed objects.

The annual d3 Natural Systems competition is an established voice in alternative architecture and one of the most notable awards in speculative, performance-based design. It recognizes exemplary ideas that redefine design as an ecological project through the implementation of advanced technologies, materials, and social interventions that engage adaptability, globalization, and emergence.

Published in London-based Wiley-Blackwell AD journal's theme issue "The New Pastoralism: Landscape into Architecture" as a leading example of environmental innovation, the annual d3 Natural Systems competition is a critical voice in ecological architecture and design.


The 2016 competition calls for innovative proposals that advance sustainable thought and performance through the study of intrinsic environmental geometries, behaviors, and flows. By identifying, examining, and applying their structural order on form and function--bottom-up, performance-based solutions for limitless building typologies, functional programs, material conditions, and products may be realized.

The d3 Natural Systems competition allows designers freedom to approach their creative process in a scale-appropriate manner--from large-scale master planning endeavors and individual building concepts, to notions of interior detail and product design. Although there are no restrictions on site, scale, program, or building typology, proposals should carefully address their selected context.


First Prize $1000 cash prize / Second Prize $500 cash prize / Third Prize $250 cash prize.
