1st runner up

G’juliemm Kouamé | France

Project Title: Love signal . 0
Project Typology: Housing & common spaces, health and well-being of occupants, integrated and preserved biodiversity

Project Description

Love signal, the habitat without 0, this "walking castle" functions as a kind of city suspended above the rocks hidden in a plant microcosm. The rule is simple, everything that touches the ground must come from nature, raw, without modification. To exist, to transform, to disappear? The relationship to time is a founding element of this project, reconciling nature and the built environment without a power struggle. An equitable relationship!

2nd runner up

Daniela Mastronardi | Italy    

Project Title: On the other side, Buenos Aires Villa 31
Project Typology: Slum regeneration, Social Housing

Project Description

The Villa 31 is a perfect example where the stochastic city and the deterministic one faces each other. In this forgotten place the inhabitants created another city. Facing this realty means analyse its history and political events, listening to the voices of its inhabitants and its surrounding. It is necessary to go beyond the visible. The methodology allows to abstract the most intimate nature of the place, preserve it, and give it new spaces. Great political acts are necessary to realize the principle for what every human being deserves a proper home, this project is a possibility for achieve it.
