Конкурсантам предлагается предвидеть развитие отношений человека с космосом в ближайшие 100-200 лет. Основываясь на сегодняшних реальных достижениях в этой теме, нужно создать фантастическую картину будущего и, главное, определить роль дизайна и архитектуры в освоении космоса. Формат подачи работ – 5 изображений и небольшой сопровождающий текст.
Blank Space is thrilled to announce the inaugural Outer Space competition in partnership with ArchDaily, Archinect, and Bustler. The winners will be selected by a jury that includes astronaut Chris Hadfield, David Benjamin, Studio Drift and Chris Precht.
Outer space has always captured the imaginations of the general public. New advances in technology (including comet landings, the Orion Spacecraft, and large scale social experiments leading to a Mars exploration) mean that outer space is no longer a place only astronauts will get to experience - but something you and I can experience within our lifetime.
For a long time, the fantastical visions of space exploration have been rooted in the sci-fi proposals of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Ring worlds, death stars, and space colonies conjure vibrant, psychedelic visions of the future from yesteryear. Since then, advances in space technology have multiplied exponentially. Are these retro visions still the best representation of our future in the stars?
“The best way to contribute to a brand-new environment is not by trying to prove what a wonderful addition you are.” says jury member Chris Hadfield “It’s by trying to have an [additive] impact, to observe and learn from those who are already there, and to pitch in with the grunt work wherever possible.”
The Outer Space competition is seeking proposals that envision space exploration in the near future (100-200 years). What kinds of structures will be developed to move, house and sustain people? How will robotics, AI, autonomous spacecraft, and satellites enhance our reach?
The most successful entries in the competition will leverage the real scientific advances being made today to create fantastic visions for the near future. Show the world that design is not an afterthought - but can be the best catalyst for envisioning our collective future.
