The international call for projects runs from 29 May to 31 July 2020. It will enable identification of the works that will be presented under the framework of the main exhibition of the Seoul Biennale.
Exclusively online, this call for projects is addressed to architects, urbanists and all designers and organizations that contribute to the making of cities and metropolises. Our intention is to gather a set of completed or projected works from some one hundred cities, from around the globe.
Entitled “CROSSROADS Building the Resilient City", the Biennale will open avenues of reflection on the city of the future through a rich and dense series of exhibitions and events. It will also emphasise the place of cities as the privileged spaces for opening perspectives onto a more sustainable world and it will explore the central role that architecture and urbanism are capable of playing toward this objective.
Proposals must explore one of the five announced thematic figures:
• Crossroad 1 on urbanism: ABOVE / BELOW
• Crossroad 2 on architecture: HERITAGE / MODERN
• Crossroad 3 on design: CRAFT / DIGITAL
• Crossroad 4 on landscape: NATURAL / ARTIFICIAL
• Crossroad 5 on the city: SAFE / RISK
Proposals will associate the content of the project with a design concept for their space. Based on these contributions, the third edition of the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2021 will open a vast main exhibition in the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), emblematic building of the city of Seoul, built in 2014 by Zaha Hadid Architects.
