Home is the domain of architecture that is most intimate to all of us. Beyond its everyday function as a physical shelter for people and their activities, Home is also an embodiment of family. It is an altar of family values, traditions, rituals as well as memories.
Although Home is one of the most common types of architecture, most homes are not designed by architects. To the majority of homeowners, the work of architects is seen as marginal and idiosyncratic. Moreover, if we seek to go beyond professional boundaries, we will find that the vision of an ideal Home of most people is oftentimes at odds with that of architects.
This ideas competition seeks to reconcile these differences. We invite participants - architects and non-architects, professionals and amateurs, designers and homeowners - to challenge the status quo of Home and to showcase visionary and innovative proposals that reconsider the definition of the housing program.
