Adaptable Futures is an international research group based at Loughborough University in the UK. Together with our industry and academic collaborators we are currently developing and testing ‘tools’ that can be used in practice to help communicate and design for a more long-term understanding of architecture. The research is focused on adaptability - the capacity to accommodate change - from both a physical and social perspective of our built environment. The competition serves as a platform for interested students to visualise some of the research’s core elements within their design proposals and to recognise the top submissions for their creative application and appropriation of those concepts.
Time can be perceived as a regular set of intervals which measures, records and organizes temporary experiences. Time-based architecture views buildings as being on the ‘move’ - the notion of a large static and monolithic object is replaced by a series of transient events that constantly shape and reshape both the building and its surroundings. This competition asks you to illustrate how the life of your building will unfold through time – over an hour, day, year, decade, or perhaps a century.
