📔 Competition Brief

The aim of this design competition is to explore the creative potential of architectural design through one of the most basic architectural drawings: the floor plan. To do so, we challenge all participants to design a labyrinth – with a specific size and entrance points. All the remaining aspects of the maze are completely open to interpretation.

Labyrinths are a system of intricate passageways and blind alleys, used symbolically, as a walking meditation, site of rituals and ceremonies, and entertainment, among other things. Labyrinths have always been about the journey, at least as much as the destination. In this competition, we ask you to design the path and define the destination by playing with the concept and form of the labyrinth; infinite, like a social media scroll.

All finalist projects will be published in our online journal, combined in an endless maze, that when scrolling through the page becomes an Infinite Labyrinth.

This competition is an opportunity to experiment with how a floor plan can communicate a project today. How can a two-dimensional drawing communicate it in the most effective way?

✏ Submission

Participants must download the floorplan TEMPLATE, and design their proposal within the limits of the designated area. There are four entrances to the labyrinth identified in the template that must be respected.

The floor plan must respect the following colour pallet:

  • Non Architecture Blue (RGB 22,23,138)
  • Non Architecture Grey (RGB 204, 203, 203)
  • light green (RGB 194,209,0)
  • black (RGB 0,0,0)
  • white (RGB 255,255,255)

 

These are the ONLY COLOURS you can use. You are free to combine more than one colour and use them creatively and as you better see fit.

We are not interested in the construction details; we want to see the space organization and use. Therefore, walls can be full colour, with no need to add stratigraphy. The same goes for windows and doors, they can be as simple as just one line. We highly recommend refraining from adding text to your floorplan. In case you find it absolutely necessary, please keep it down to a few words and use the fonts given below:

  • Main Info: Arial 13pt
  • Secondary info: Arial 10pt
