Description
ARQUITECTUM has decided to choose one of the most interesting themes in popular culture in order to consider one of the most attractive aspects of modernity: space platforms.
That is why we are pleased to be able to invite designers, Graduates and Professionals throughout the world to participate in the ideas competition “STAR WARS®: LUNAR BASE” and to propose, according to each individual point of view, the best way to approach a project on that desolate and inhospitable satellite which is the moon.
The idea behind this ARQUITECTUM initiative lies in the challenge of renovating the architectural imagery of what is a highly popular subject, leaving it to artists (architects, industrial designers, artistic designers or other individuals from the art world) to give –based on their own experience- their opinion regarding characters from popular culture and how to produce architecture through them.
