XYZ : Unknown Variables and Events
Where will the architects be in 2050? What's next after architectural graduation? This project is not craving for answers, but questions in architectural practice.
This proposal set in an imaginative scenario of ‘what architects will be in 2050’, where the role of the professionals is no longer constrained and limited in a specialized circle of scope, but flourish into wider understanding and scope in architectural practice.
Seeing the potentials of motorway and its infrastructures all around the world, this mobile tectonic structure will be held as a universal experiment, grounded for the architectural students and practitioners to celebrate and attempt to dive into various positions and emphasize the engagement with the people, in a grassroots basis, rather than the top-down hierarchical system. While the events and programs are suggested in alignment with globalized framework for the ease of logistics and construction method, the internal activities will be contextually sensitive and organic, in correspondence to the local community and participated by local architects and institutions.
It is also an idea of bringing in multidisciplinary and alternative practices to challenge the existing, prevailing conventional modus operandi in the architectural field. Despite the renderings are ‘architectural’ curated, the imaginaries are intended to be abstract and extract the essence of event (software), and architectural tectonics (hardware) to implement its effect.
