With successive declines on the financial markets, recent times have seen a growing interest in the theoretical debate about alternatives to the ongoing capitalist system. Gathering international thinkers from all walks of political life, the diagnosis on the ongoing economic crisis situation tends to demonstrate that the system as it is nowadays needs to be rethought and perhaps re-established globally.

Brief

Internet and technologies reduce the distances to the information. However, if the virtual traffic operates in nano-seconds, the real one causes extensive troubles in the main metropoles in terms of time and energy waste. How would the transportation systems be influenced, from the small scale networks to the global ones? What about tourism?

Submission requirements

The scale of the project is up to you! One can think about a global solution for urban conditions on a world scale whereas others would rather talk about their own street corner! Both are interesting! The only rule: it must be urban and prospective, according to the main thesis. The selection criteria will consider the final design proposal as the hypothesis taken by the entrants. As this competition tries to develop critical and concrete ideas to a hypothetical situation, the entrants are invited to define the context (political, economical and geographical, including if needed a time schedule) in which their proposal has to be related to be credible and optimized.Utopias as dystopias can be considered, as long as the proposals permit to bring original ideas and thoughts according to the statement.

Jury

The Jury is composed by the editorial board of Collage Lab and at least one additional invited personality (architect, artist, curator or philosopher) with significant influence on architecture and urbanism and specific interest on the current topic reliable to their current work. The invited jury is to be determined.
