International young architects’ Awards and Exhibition ” Temporary Sheltering Spaces “

THE AIM AND EXTENT

The era we are in, is the stage to the most rapid population growth in history. Parallel to this growth; the duty of responding to spatial needs of disaster victims or refugees due to man-made disasters or natural such as earthquake, flood, fire, war, famine and poverty; has become more difficult. Disaster victims and refugees represent the masses, which are left out of the privileged classes of the societies, and thus which are disadvantaged in reaching to architectural services. Hence, within the context of above-mentioned disasters; the responsibilities of architects and the position of the profession is subject to question and open to debate.

International young architects Awards and Exhibition Temporary Sheltering Spaces

The monumental and prestigious examples of architecture come forth today as they have in the history. The spatial needs and problems of those who represent the everyday and “ordinary” life have usually been disregarded. As an universal discipline, architecture bears the responsibility of providing the sheltering needs of those who have unique cultural and functional conditions around the world. Thus, the disasters mentioned at the beginning, bring major potential and opportunities for the inquiry of ethic values fundamental to the profession.

The main aim of the Event is to evaluate the architectural responses to the needs of temporary housing and open them to debate. Furthermore, the provision of temporary housing needs of disaster victims is expected to be considered as a spatial configuration and a stage for examining the current developments in material and structural systems. Thereof, the temporary housing settlements – which came forth as a result of disasters – are expected to produce the outcome of increase in the quality of architectural design. The participants of the competition are required to define a context of a disaster of their choice, to produce demountable design proposals for temporary housing units and settlements in an economic and practical way. Both visual and textual formats are going to be used for the presentation of the design proposals.
