ABC | LIVING SPACES 2020 is an international competition of architecture and interior design ideas in the time of the Covid-19.

​The competition is digital and all its phases are online, from registration to the award ceremony. Competitors are asked to submit a proposal for a (furnished) residential living space or hotel living space with a wide freedom on the kind of solution chosen: (1) the residential living space can be an apartment in an apartment building, a single or multifamily house, a villa, a tree house, on stilts, on water, etc. (2) the hotel living space can be a hotel or residence room, a bungalow, etc.

The reference site is open: the Living Space can be located in a large metropolis or a small village, in an alpine context or in an equatorial forest or on an island. East, west, north, south, cold, hot, dry, and wet: no strings attached.

The Jury will reward those creative proposals that offer functional, welcoming and pleasant housing solutions and that allow to carry out remote working, distance learning, physical activities, sanitization of people, animals and objects, sanitary isolation, etc. (even by reconfiguration). The most interesting furnishing and design elements specifically designed for the use in this Competition are rewarded.

The submission, according to the framework of Building Information Modelling, consists of one or more IFC files containing the 3D model of the living space and the reference context (the building that contains the Living space and its immediate surroundings). Furthermore, images and / or videos originating directly from the model and possibly reworked in post-production are requested. Finally, a short Design Report with a presentation of the proposal.

The proposals are evaluated by a Jury of high profile made up of international professionals and academics from the Architecture, Interior Design, and Design and Real Estate fields and by experts in the BIM field.
