The aim of the “Re-Draw” competition is to develop one drawing to ‘represent’ an iconic architecture piece. The participants are asked to draft one image with absolute freedom of scale, technique, and level of abstraction.
We encourage creativity, criticality, and innovation. The drawing can highlight functional aspects of the building, showing a deep understanding of one or more design aspects. It can focus on the aesthetic qualities, experimenting and mastering a drawing technique with hyper-realistic outcomes, or it can be an optical deformation, a caricatural interpretation, or a distant abstraction of the built architecture.
The drawing can strengthen a conventional interpretation of architecture or explore a new angle, a new point of view, intellectual and/or physical. The Centre Pompidou can be portrayed as a whole, apart, or a collage of disconnected moments. The entry is completely flexible and adaptable to the participant’s interpretation.
Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually. The registration fee is paid per team, regardless of how many members form it. Personal information of all the team members can be uploaded during the submission procedure of the final drawing.
About the Organizer
Non Architecture Competitions aims to find unconventional and unexplored design solutions in the field of architecture. From 2016 to 2019, Non Architecture organized a series of 10 competitions pointed at reinventing functional architectural typologies. In 2020, we entered a new phase structured around nine themes, building a Research Ecosystem with the purpose of exploring each theme from different perspectives and multiple competitions. They will all have their focus on tackling the big issues of tomorrow, by seeking non-traditional approaches in the architect’s work.
