From the Past to the Present, architecture is a structure that defines a space that create a way of life and refining the human spirit. It is a component of a community and a city that enables people to engage and interact in a tangible way. At the same time, virtual reality technology has expanded the boundaries of human activities beyond a physical space. We can be in different places at the same time within the same hour, minute or second. We can be ‘ourself’ in both the virtual or real worlds.
Technology can connect humans from different corners of the world and create a new form of social interaction and society that do not rely on a physical space as much as before. It is a tool to help make our lives more convenient. However, technology itself is very complex in terms of social relations, space, and time, in which sometimes we forget that we are all living on earth together and in the same universe.
The concept of experimental architecture may not be enough to change the way we live as much as today's technological advancements, which is increasingly affect the human way of life physically. ASA Experimental Design Competition 2022 is urging all participants to come up with an idea that are focused on practical use of space. Let's look at 'Co-Exist with Co-Area' in an era when co-working spaces are available in various forms, as well as in more different dimensions of time. It may be an architecture that connects people together; an architectural concept that makes a better city or a better society; and creating value and contemporary meaning that can be put into practice.
In addition to the award ceremony for winning entries, all submitted entries will be published not only in architectural field but to a wider public benefit.
All entry should present a design proposal in architecture, interior design, landscape architecture or urban design that demonstrates how 'Co-Exist with Co-Area' can provide a solution to the problems of an existing site location anywhere in Thailand.
