Theme & Background

 
What we think when we hear “What is a Home”?
 
Home - a place to unwind yourself, a space where your mind & body are at ease or an enclosure where one feels safe. Pretty simple? Nooo.
 
A home should not be just merely a composition of geometrical forms with a contemporary façade & few greens here and there. It should have spaces that can evoke your feelings both tangible & intangible, a composition of space that is strong enough to play different roles as per the use of individuals, an enclosure that has a perfect mix of open, semi-open & closed spaces. Big or small for everyone their home is the best & it is the way it should be but the pandemic completely changed the image of a contemporary home we use to had in our mind.
 
Continuous lockdowns forced people to stay indoors in their homes for weeks. If you look at this problem of staying indoor in an urban home, architecturally you will find that people were actually packed inside a box rather than their homes. As we all know homes in urban areas lack in terms of connect with outdoor areas, natural light & ventilation & a very minimum space to move around. Rapid urbanization has only forced us to live with polluted environments & has led us to a stressful life.
 
In order to overcome the hustle & bustle of urban lifestyle what people tend to do is go on a vacation for a few days in some environment friendly stays to get themselves rejuvenate but the fact is that it is a temporary solution. Instead of finding ways to escape & relax can we have a gated community wherein each home is in balance with the eco system & the entire community has an access to abundance of natural air, organic food, clean water & is packed with all the sustainable features? It is for this reason we have curated this brief to think & design a community of Eco-Habitats.
 
We invite participants to design a gated housing community where the sustainability is at the center of the entire project. The aim of the brief is to achieve design proposals which are bold, experimental & most importantly functional. To add a little twist we have added a surprise category of design & we hope you will find that interesting.
 
"The Urban Escape" design brief aims to explore innovative & sustainable housing ideas wherein earth, water, food, air and vegetation are considered as the elements of the project. Let us all try to bring a change and create a new category of housing which has all the features of an “Urban” home but at the same time the community experience is “Rural”.
