|The team leader must have a background in architecture (i.e., is a student of, has graduated from or is practicing architecture).
FUTURARC PRIZE (FAP) 2024 asks entrants to propose architectural solutions for the continuation of life after either ONE or BOTH of the following scenarios:
A) Climate Destruction: Any significant/extreme climate-related disasters triggered by hydrometeorological (e.g., floods, storms, heat waves) or climatological (e.g., droughts, wildfires) causes.
Consider how the current year's heatwaves have broken historic records around the world, with scientists postulating that it is Earth's hottest-ever climate in at least 120,000 years. The reality of a global-scale climate disaster is not far off--in fact, large-scale ones have long affected vulnerable populations. How can architecture respond to this?
B) Endings: The end of lifespans--be it of humans; non-human species; ecosystems such as forests, coral reefs, drylands; etc., due to famine, disease, massive extraction, etc.
All living beings perish. Current methods of treating expired matter tend to be carbon-intensive or require much land, a resource that is scarce. At the urban level, facilities such as graveyards/crematoriums are still negatively perceived. Can the end of life, for humans or ecosystems, be handled in a way that brings hope and renewal for the future?
