Can architecture be an essential tool in the larger enterprise to alter human consciousness? Can architecture be more than a superficial representation of advances made by sociologists, philosophers, psychologists and psychiatrists, who are exploring this new collective consciousness? It remains to be demonstrated that a quiet, present architecture can ground us in a culture that anticipates "New Earth." It is in its tranquility that this architecture becomes formless - a vessel for gentle celebration. In its presence your architecture should ask us to be present within ourselves - not a product of our history or a fragment of our future - just present.
In 1926 the early modernist architect and author, Alberto Sartoris, combined the program of a pub and a church initiating the notion of a “Programmatic hybrid". Either program might be seen as driven by conditions of consciousness and expectations of prescripted forms of behavior; but, each would seem to be the antithesis of the other. For which would you see "Being" and for which would you see "Having"? How might such a programmatic hybrid imply a new consciousness? At a similar moment, in another century, Sartoris made as radical a proposal for the nature of a new architecture as this competition is asking of you. Place this programmatic hybrid - a building with two contradictory uses like a pub and a church - within your world and let it be present, a grounding of a New Earth.
We highly recommend participants to co-work with students in other fields than architecture.
