INTO THE RABBIT HOLE
Can you redesign Alice's Wonderland?

Archiol | Artuminate Competitions

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION
The pandemic has proven to be a test for the relationship between humans and architecture, lockdown – The experience of living within the four walls. How has architecture affected your mind in the lockdown? What are stressed architectural spaces? What was the state of your mind as you were locked down? This pandemic has created an increased urgency to strengthen mental health care. We also realized the importance of the role of architecture in mental health.

This competition aims to explore the use of imagination to design architecture spaces that can heal the human mind. Explore your ideas at extreme levels. We as architects and designers are responsible more for the well-being of people. So let’s get more creative and come up with extraordinary solutions for this urgent issue faced by humanity.
We do not expect literal designs, we expect ideas and design development beyond the conditioned thinking.
Nothing is unreal!


“The first step is to establish that something is possible. Then probability will occur.”
– Elon Musk
