Non Architecture is a non-profit organisation, striving for innovation and experimentation by engaging an international community of young designers (1000+ projects, 2600+ participants, 600k yearly page visits). From 2016, N-A organised 10 competitions to reinvent 10 Functional Typologies. We adopted Design Competitions as a gamified research process and involved a Community Researching by Designing. Our mission is to influence and inform the production of innovative design concepts.

  • Systemic changes

The most relevant challenge of contemporary society is: What’s a (Non) Architecture for a world in crisis?
Departing from the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we framed 9 design themes for a new competition series focused on finding innovative approaches to sustainable development. Each theme is developed in various competitions incorporating multiple SDG, generating a Research Ecosystem. Each competition will be different in format, type of design required and target group of designers addressed.
The research will be shared as a Theme Book – summarising key projects, findings and insights - and as an Online Journal – collecting all the material produced, inspirational inputs and open submissions from the community.
With this series, to be developed in 3 years, we want to trigger a new awareness in the design community, challenging it to re-invent sustainability and to build an empowered system based on co-creating and co-sharing knowledge and expertise.
