Brief: The aim of the “Foregather” challenge is to design a community center, where this place will be used as a workshop to practice, learn and teach the arts and crafts of their own land.
Overall in such places, the creation of crafts is solely a major source of income for the people that reside there.
How can we create a different connection be which won’t just offer the tourist a space to experience but also that empower the artisans and craftsmen?
What architectural intervention will help in creating a space that will transcend the perception held towards arts and crafts?
Space is also supposed to act as a gathering space where they are learning, teaching, and creating monetizable arts and crafts together.
For more information visit the competition WEBSITE.
The competitions are open for students and professionals from all the disciplines of design.
This is a design idea challenge only. There is no built commission/realization associated with the problem.
