Innovative Minds Architectural Design Competition
In today’s world creative ideas are becoming crucial to success of all populations especially when social, economic and technological issues are becoming more complex. How can “innovative minds” be invigorated by an architectural design to promote solutions for our complex problems?
An architectural design needs to become a catalyst for the innovative mind within physical and or virtual environments. This design needs to promote the human condition by inspiring the minds of the intended users to an unprecedented level. This may be accomplished on any scale; micro or macro. The designer will decide how to inspire users to develop or use their innovative minds directly or indirectly as a result of the architectural design.
