The goal of the 28th Space Prize for International Students in Architectural Design is to explore the possibilities in sustainable living and architecture. Thus a successful project entry would be one that clearly presents an innovative and experimental exploration in architecture and design, suggesting sustainability through minimal ways of living, minimal ways of building, minimal use of materials, minimal construction methods, and minimal ways of dismantling. The shelter ought to contribute positively to the site and surroundings while leaving the least impact upon removal. Great amount of reference and study can be found through historical artifacts and architecture from history to the 20th century modern period but everyday architecture and objects including local building and construction types should not be ignored. The successful project will contribute positively to the current state of Architecture to any local cultural context while also within the larger frame. The philosophical idea that supports this approach also could be found from ourhistorical and local contexts, to the avant-garde philosophy at the turn of the century as exemplified by such ideas as ‘pragmatism’ quoted below from the Encyclopedia Britannica.
