Call For Submission: ARCASIA Students Architectural Design Competition 2021

Theme - "Public Spaces In 15-Minutes Circle"

Technology has significantly changed our everyday lifestyle. The well-developed transportation shortens the temporal and spatial distances, and the upgraded information and communications technology also make it more convenient to rapidly get our daily necessaries and service at home. The neighbourhood and community in the spatial sense have then been redefined. Under the labour-division cooperation, people assemble and construct the city with higher efficiency. The tendency where people are increasingly segmented and atomized in urban life, however, is unprecedently weakening the interpersonal interaction and connection.

Besides the hackneyed nostalgia, how can we understand the surrounding environment and neighbourhood? What is the relationship between human scale and a walkable urban space? When the reason for communication and interaction in a neighbourhood is gradually attenuated by the capital and commercial hegemony, is it still valuable for us to leave home and walk down to a nearby place to do something and to meet someone?

A “15-minute life circle” is home-cantered and covering the whole area that can be reached in 15 minutes by walking at a normal pace. The boundary of one 15-minute life circle usually forms an irregular shape due to the urban morphology and terrain being passed. Meanwhile, the circle size is varied because of the diversity of personal pace and energy. Regardless of individual differences, the 15-minute life circle has body characteristics, daily performance, and social features for everyone.

With no use of any vehicle, people can experience both the natural and artificial environment alongside when moving around just on foot. A 15-minute life circle provides an open and perceivable urban space where people can enjoy all the public spaces, services, and resources. The definition of the neighbourhood is substantially embodied when people can affirm that they are living in a social network by encountering acquaintances and sharing the place with others.

This competition allows students to provide the solution to the problems from both physical and social perspectives on their 15-minute life circle and its public space. The program and design of the project are open to any level and scale.

The project could be a renovation of an urban fragment, a regeneration of a garden, an installation to reconnect the neighbourhoods, a kid-friendly urban renewal, and so on. Students are encouraged to observe their cities, clarify the problems, arrange the program, and give a responsive solution in this competition.
