concorso di idee

iscrizione entro l'11 gennaio 2017 | consegna entro il 1° febbraio 2017

Bee Breeders, in collaborazione con la compagnia di software Vividly, annuncia il lancio del concorso di idee Archhive: Architecture in Virtual Reality, con il quale si intende raccogliere le proposte dei partecipanti per creare architettura in una realtà virtuale.
La digitalizzazione, infatti, sta influenzando profondamente la vita e il lavoro degli architetti, permettendo a questi ultimi di fornire un messaggio sempre più diretto ed efficace per i clienti.

Gli organizzatori del concorso intendono esplorare le capacità dello strumento digitale rispetto alla possibilità di creare una galleria per mostre virtuali e chiedono ai partecipanti un progetto per questo spazio espositivo in cui saranno mostrati i progetti vincitori dei concorsi di architettura indetti da Bee Breeders. La sala esisterebbe esclusivamente online e permetterebbe ai visitatori di tutto il mondo di fare una "passeggiata virtuale" all'interno della galleria, esplorando e analizzando gli elaborati dei vincitori del concorso.

La competizione è aperta a tutti, senza necessità di possedere particolari qualifiche professionali.
La registrazione dovrà essere effettuata entro l'11 gennaio 2017, la consegna entro l'1 febbraio 2017.

Architecture digitalization is having a huge impact on the lives and work of architects, allowing them to create and deliver their message to potential clients in an increasingly efficient manner. Working in partnership with the revolutionary virtual reality software company Vividly, Bee Breeders are looking to explore the capabilities of this digital tool to create a virtual reality based exhibition gallery to be known as the Archhive.

For the "Archhive: Architecture in Virtual Reality" competition, participants are being tasked with designing the virtual exhibition gallery in which to showcase Bee Breeders' architecture competition winners. This digital hall of honour would exist entirely online and would allow visitors from all over the world to "walk" around this virtual gallery and explore the work of the selected competition winners, as well as occasionally invited guest contributors.

This competition allows architects to work with any digital 3D modeling tools they choose, and since the exhibition space would exist solely in virtual reality, there are no construction restrictions. It's all about the virtual reality's architectural spatial quality.

The selected winner's project will be realised as a new media project - digital architectural space archhive.info - providing significant publicity for the designers of this virtual gallery. The Archhive is being planned as a large scale media project that will run indefinitely, launching soon after the completion of the competition.

Competition is open for all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum).
