Competition :: A House for Pink Floyd



Submission Deadline: Saturday, August 10, 2013

Generically entitled "A House for Pink Floyd”, the latest competition launched by ICARCH (International Competitions in Architecture), in partnership with Atelierul de Proiectare (AdeP - Design Studio) Magazine, wishes to celebrate architecture in its most liberal, revolutionary state.

The competition will ambitiously focus on creating a typology of architecture inspired by the dictum "Architecture is frozen music", a true manifesto of rebellion against obsolete values of the consumerist society.

As many of you know, Pink Floyd were and are considered to be one of the icons of revolutionary, progressive music, that took to using sonic experiments and philosophical lyrics to cross social boundaries and redefine values. In the same way, "A House for Pink Floyd" is to translate the band’s music philosophy into architecture - an attempt all the more legitimate, in this case, if we are to consider that three of the founding members of Pink Floyd studied architecture.

“A House for Pink Floyd” is an international architecture contest, open to all architects, architecture students and design students who are willing to take on such a challenge.

The competition will focus on creating any object of architecture that transcends rules and standardisation and innovates through itself. There are no constraints in regard to site, program or size, in order to provide maximum freedom to participants.
