競賽主題 JIAN ZHU JING SAI QING BAO JU

一個美麗的想法或令人回味的形象可能比一個物體、一座建築物甚至整個城市更能激發我們的想像力。然而,正是物質性構成了建築的巨大力量,它能把一個實體建築變成真正超然的體驗。

讓我們想想如何改善我們已經擁有的建築,而不是像往常一樣,把它們夷為平地,從頭開始新的建築。當涉及到處理最近的建築,但不受地標地位的保護時,在如何改造它們方面有很大的自由。

芝加哥最具標誌性的建築之一,詹姆斯湯普森中心就是一個例子。伊利諾伊州政府決定將其出售用於新的開發,這座擁有35年歷史的20世紀晚期建築將面臨極大的危險。

競賽挑戰 JIAN ZHU JING SAI QING BAO JU

很明顯,該中心最初的目標是創造一個真正宏偉的市民空間。這座大樓主要由官員辦公室佔據,下班後和週末,公眾無法進入。政府的設想從來都不夠理想化,結果注定要失敗,因為大樓的維護成本很高,再加上多年的忽視。

參賽者被要求為湯普森中心發展一個新的願景,湯普森中心是芝加哥中心的一個創意中心。現有的玻璃和鋼結構包括120萬平方英呎的空間,為了使新的綜合體可行,擬議方案應規劃至少250萬平方英呎的空間。提交的文件應包括一個簡短的聲明,其中包括項目大綱、計畫、關鍵部分和效果圖。

Reinventing Thompson Center - Ignite Competition

Reinventing Thompson Center, Chicago

OVERVIEW

A beautiful idea or evocative image may stir our imagination more than an object, a building, or even an entire city. Yet, it is the materiality that constitutes the great power of architecture, its ability to turn a physical building into a truly transcendental experience.
Let’s think of how to improve buildings that we already have rather than, as often happens, raze them to start new ones from scratch. And when it comes to dealing with recent buildings, yet unprotected by landmark status, there is a lot of freedom as far as how they could be transformed.

One of the most iconic buildings in Chicago, James R. Thompson Center is a case in point. Illinois state government’s decision to sell it for new development puts this 35-year-old gem of late-20th century architecture in great danger.

CHALLENGE

It is quite clear that the Center’s original ambition to create a truly grand civic space was a mismatch with its limited function from the outset. Occupied primarily by bureaucrats’ offices the building was not accessible to the public after working hours and on weekends. The government’s vision was never idealistic enough and, as a result, was destined to fail due to the building’s high maintenance cost, exacerbated by years of neglect.

The competition participants are asked to develop a new vision for the Thompson center, as a creative hub in the center of Chicago. The existing glass-and-steel structure comprises 1.2 million sq. Ft. Of space and in order to make the new complex feasible, proposed schemes should plan for at least 2.5 million sq. Ft. Of space. Submissions should include a short statement with a breakup of program outlines, plans, key section, and renderings.

You may also produce a bonafide/authorized certificate from the institution as proof of identity.
  • All the participants who do not belong to the student category will be considered as a professional.

  • The voting will close as per the date mentioned in the schedule of the competition page. Any votes coming after this date/time will be not counted in the final calculation.
  • You can share your project on social media/messaging platforms apart from UNI as well.
  • Creating fraudulent/fake/bot/impersonating accounts to increase public votes will be considered as unfair means and may lead to disqualification with a notice.

AWARDS & FEES

The fee to participate grows based on the number of registrations received. Similarly, the prize money proportionally grows with rising participating entries. A total of 500 entries will be accepted in the competition till the last deadline. If the competition reaches a total registered entry of 500, then the participation process will be closed at a total prize pool of 20,000 USD.

This implies, the sooner you register, the less you will pay as fees. The number of teams you will compete with, the higher the amount of prize you will be entitled to receive.
