Student Competition

On 1 October 2012, MAB12 hosted a 24 hour student design competition. The winning team receives a travel scholarship for attending the Media Architecture Biennale 2012 in Aarhus to the amount of 1,000 EUR as they will be invited to present their conceptual work at the biennale.

The task was to design a concept for a dynamic media façade that can be used to build up a sustained relation to a civic theme or challenge through everyday participation - with a focus on creating an immediately engaging interaction that activates people sensuously and emotionally and affectively to contribute to this theme through user-generated content.

Honorary mentions

All three honorary mentions will be invited to have the project featured in the exhibition as a poster and possibly video:

For thinking architecture as something which is 'fluid', transformational, movable as well as moving; The 'Out-of-the-box'/'Activist' honorary mention goes to:
Bravo /Metaoccupation
Ruben Alonso and Ollie Palmer (The Bartlett School of Architecture)

The use of open source drones as providers of projection surfaces is excellent and great out-of-the-box thinking. The jury also greatly appreciates the link to the use in the Occupy movement and its focus on participation and stressing of the power of the people.

For conceptualising something we'd actually like to see in some form at MAB; The 'We want to see this happen' honorary mention goes to:
Urbaneers
Mathis Rohde Nielsen, Jason Peter Morris, Søren Pedersen, Michael Kühl Andersen (Aarhus University)

"Very inspiring concept that is clearly a well thought through response to the brief, while activating a space that is currently largely neglacted at night time," as one jury member said. It is a good point to see the small river in Aarhus as an architectural surface that at night time transforms into a surface with media facade capabilities.

For compellingly meeting the spirit of the competition's civic theme and for making us all think about the potentials in architecture for supporting societal change; The 'Social Change'/'Big Thinking' honorary mention goes to:

"They definitely met the spirit of the competition," as one jury member said, continuing: "Columbia is wracked with violence by a relatively small portion of the population. The purpose of the social media display is to publicly illustrate that "the good ones are more (Los Buenos somos mas)". I am especially impressed with the social idea. There are thousands of social media metadata ambiant awareness displays, but this team has a convincing argument that comes through in their design."

In addition, the jury wishes to congratulate the group M:A:I:A (Martin Høgild, Astrid Stokholm, Isabel Aagaard, Andreas Jonsson, Alexander Brandi (IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark) on their excellent use of sketching toolshttp://maia-dk.tumblr.com/

Each team kept a Tumblr blog to record their progress and were also encouraged to post updates on Twitter with the tag #mab12sc. An overview of the teams along with links to their respective blogs as well as the Twitter activity can be found below.
