DEATH In-Between

Since history, people have been expressing their thoughts on death in many, many ways. Marking the lives and deaths of important figures, rulers, and heroes has been the driving force behind many wonderful and influential structures, from memorials and mausoleums all the way back to the ancient pyramids in Egypt. In fact, many ideas, discussions and philosophies surrounding death have been the origin of many great works of art. Some of the quotes express both the physical and metaphysical nature of DEATH.

“Dying is a wild night and a new road.”
Emily Dickinson

“Death is the dropping of the flower so that the fruit may swell.”
Henry Ward Beecher

“Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily.”
Napoleon Bonaparte

“Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75.”
Benjamin Franklin

This competition asks designers to re-think and re-imagine Death. Designers are asked to design based on their conceived ideas about death– either material or immaterial – merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. The proposal can be a tool, a furniture, an indoor design project, a pavilion, a building, a renovation, a landscape or an urban plan. Scale of intervention, programs and site are upto participants.

– Connection between the concept and the proposed project.
– New exploration, alternative input that break with preconceived schemes in the traditional design process.
