SEED 太陽智體設計國際競賽征集公告

【國際設計競賽】太陽智體設計:在自然中的最小人居單元

融入自然的生活變得越來越引人關注,人與自然的矛盾與融合,也正體現在了人類生產活動對于自然的破壞和改造。如何用綠色的概念,在不破壞自然環境的前提下設計建造一個臨時的最小人居單元,或者說這個臨時居住單元就像種子一樣,它發芽、生長、枯萎、凋謝這個循環就是回歸自然的過程。這樣一個人居單元的設計就變得非常具有挑戰性。

為了激發全球的創意人才對于此問題的研究,美國南加州大學建筑學院馬清運院長正在發起一場設計競賽,這個競賽的縮寫就叫SEED,中文翻譯是種子,全稱是Solar Embodied Environmental Design。

這個SEED人居單元可以容納一到兩個人,并且能夠在戶外環境下自給自足,使用期限過后SEED將可以自然分解而不對環境造成污染及破壞。

馬清運院長對于SEED的含義是這樣說的,“我用Solar Embodied Environmental Design這個名稱來啟發設計師們返回來研究最根本的居住場所。SEED最小人居單元競賽的目的,就是要找到居住與自然最大限度和諧相處的可能性,就像種子與自然的微妙關系。”對于勝出的競賽方案,馬院長希望其能夠在自然環境中的緊急情況下使用,或者能夠在野外旅行時使用,而不會對自然產生影響。

本次競賽是由@ALL舉辦的一次全球范圍競賽,競賽開始時間為北京時間2015年4月20日,參賽者提交參賽作品的截至日期為2015年7月31日。最終的獲獎作品將由網絡投票產生,獲獎名單將于2015年8月4號公布在@ALL的網站上。競賽的網址為http://www.spamall.com.cn/portfolio/seed-competition_seed01/

本次競賽鼓勵不同領域、不同知識背景的參賽者交叉協作,最終6個勝出的參賽作品將會進一步與專業領域的科學家、藝術家、設計師、發明家和加工方等協作發展為最終的方案,并將在中國及美國夏威夷進行建造。投票得出的前50名參賽作品,@ALL將會進行全球巡展并且出版書籍。

SEED? is the ideal design for a return to the primary condition of a habitat. It is the equilibrium between individual vitality and ecological sustainability. It is a moment of hope and a celebration of life. SEED? is envisioned as an outdoor living unit, inter-dependent with nature and self-efficient on life. It exists only for the purpose of a short interval of humans in nature and dissolves in a natural process disappearing with the journey. It is expected to celebrate the moment of human intervention with nature in the most beautiful and precious way, as beautiful and powerful as SEED?.
