[co]design 2011: A Future Beyond Concrete is an open invitation to all creative minds to engage in finding low-cost, innovative alternatives to concrete, concrete reduction or concrete re-use within the real world context of low-income housing in Bangalore. This is a global competition to design materials, techniques or processes that create sustainable ways of building. A strong winning design will be scoped to be prototyped on the ground in India. A Future Beyond Concrete is an initiative of community oriented design ([co]design studio).
There are two starting points: design new ways or adapt old ways. You may choose to look at an innovative design for a single material or construction technique. Equally the innovation could be re-adapting, evolving or promoting an existing material or process of making. Use the background material provided to frame, explore and develop your design concepts.
