Applications call for BORDERS: Transforming Forgotten Lines
This is an international call to transform a crossing border through a visionary architectural project with a human perspective. It aims to look to explore ideas that change the concept of a crossing border. We are looking to bring fresh ideas about how borders between nations are not treats, but bridges of opportunities and growth, and bridges for our humankind.
The main purpose of BORDERS: Transforming Forgotten Lines Competition is to design an architectural project able to transform a crossing border chosen by the participant, to join cultures, peoples, and create a vital spot for economic growth for all sides. Transform the crossing border into a place that unites and promotes cultural diversity. At the same time, the project creates a friendly atmosphere for the encounter of two or more nations. Participants have the challenge to develop an attractive program for business and different economic sectors.
Participants are free to choose the (1) location of the border, (2) the program, (3) the scale, and (4) the scope of the project.
The border location could be a specific international crossing by land or an entire region that affects multiple cities or towns. Participants are also able to explore and choose sea borders between nations, or “air borders” located at international airports. Every line that divides two or more countries could be considered a location able to be chosen for the participants to develop the project.
The main principles to take in consideration as evaluation for the project are the following:
