[Hong Kong] FuturArc Prize 2018

Supported by the Hong Kong Green Building Council, FuturArc Prize 2018 is now open for nomination.

FUTURARC PRIZE seeks forward-thinking, innovative design ideas for Asia. The Competition offers a platform to professionals and students who are passionate about the environment. Through the force of their imagination it aspires to capture visions of a sustainable future.

The brief for the 2018 competition is A City of Biophilic Delight. Biophilia is our innate connection to nature, a phenomenon rooted in neuroscience and psychology that describes an inherent human need to affiliate with life and life-like processes. Biophilic design, at the scale of a building or a city, integrates natural elements and nature-like qualities into the built environment, thereby creating, in users of that environment, positive feelings and experiences such as calmness and satisfaction.
