Dezeen’s Redesign The World Competition: Winner Frame City by Fernando Donis

Geschreven op 19-11-2021 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Design Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Fernando Donis’ proposal to create new habitable topographies in which humanity and nature coexist has won first place in Dezeen’s Redesign the World competition powered by Twinmotion.

Donis‘ Frame City concept aims to undo the damage to nature and people’s wellbeing caused by a century of rapid urbanisation.

Each high-density city, which is designed to house a million people, is formed of mountain-like terraced structures made from cross-laminated timber, which would be built to frame natural landscapes.

Roads and private vehicles would be abandoned in favour of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, with careful city planning to ensure that necessary services and amenities are within a 15-minute walk or cycle of people’s homes. Donis imagines that each city would be designed to integrate with and complement its natural surroundings, creating a diverse network of different urban settlements, which would lead to rich cultural exchanges and tourism.

The proposal beat over 100 entries and 14 other finalists to win the Redesign the World competition, which called for radical proposals to rethink planet Earth. “Donis’ proposal for a new topography that is inhabitable for people while providing for nature is powerful, compelling and unlike any other entry we received,” said the Redesign the World judges. “There have been many attempts to bring more greenery to our cities to fuse nature and architecture, but Frame City approaches the challenge in a really innovative and memorable way.”

Mcheileh Studio’s proposal to build aeroponic farms in huge airships to distribute food around the globe has been awarded second place in Dezeen’s Redesign the World competition powered by Twinmotion. The proposal, called Aeroponic 2100, envisions dirigibles that fly through towns, cities and residential spaces distributing food where it is needed.

The ships would eliminate the need to transport food over long distances via carbon-intensive modes of transport and free up land currently used for farming. They would also eliminate pollution and create a “true farm to table solution on a mass scale”, according to Mcheileh Studio. The airships would be climate controlled, self-sufficient, powered by solar and wind energy, and designed to travel anywhere in the world, including desert environments and natural or human-made disaster sites.

Redesign the World judges selected the entry as runner-up in the competition, which called for radical ideas to rethink planet Earth. “People usually think of buildings as very fixed and permanent things, but they do not need to be,” the judges said. “Mcheileh Studio’s dirigible architecture presents a compelling vision for a lighter, more mobile future where we can move our buildings to where they need to be without having to constantly build, destroy and rebuild permanent structures.”

“One of the most significant challenges the human race faces this century is the production and distribution of food. Current methods produce high levels of air and land pollution through the growth, harvesting and transportation of food. “Research has also demonstrated that agricultural land becomes degraded and less efficient over time due to the repeated use of pesticides.

“Additionally, food insecurity is reaching crisis levels in some parts of the world as a result of war, poverty and displacement of entire communities due to climate change. Aeroponic 2100 is a proposal that aims to address the problems around food production in the future by eliminating pollution, inefficient transportation and damage to land ecosystems – a true ‘farm to table’ solution on a mass scale.

“The concept is derived by combining aerospace technology and aeroponic farming methods. A fleet of airships contains agricultural space that is stacked vertically for the growth and harvesting of food. The airships are mobile food markets that also sell food.

Matthew Pratt’s vision to elevate humanity “high above the ground” wins joint third place in the Redesign the World contest. Matthew Pratt’s proposal to raise all human activities onto elevated cities built on slender stilts has been awarded joint third place in Dezeen’s Redesign the World competition powered by Twinmotion.

Pratt‘s proposal imagines an alternative reality where humans’ ancestors never left the forest canopy and people live a quieter life in harmony with nature. Named Higher Ground, the project imagines slender, towering structures to accommodate all human activity high above ground to minimise disturbance on the Earth’s surface. Large, elevated planters are used to cultivate crops to facilitate a controlled supply of food whilst avoiding taking up large expanses of land.

Pratt describes the speculative proposal as an “alternative vision of humankind, with thriving communities elevated in beautiful landscapes”. Pratt’s entry has been named joint third place in the Redesign the World competition alongside Bless Yee’s Carbon Capture Refuge X proposal, which imagines a world of floating habitats that capture carbon from the air.

Bless Yee’s vision for carbon-capturing “living infrastructures” wins joint third place in the Redesign the World contest. Bless Yee’s proposal for floating habitats that capture carbon from the air has been awarded joint third place by the judges of Dezeen’s Redesign the World competition powered by Twinmotion.

Named Carbon Capture Refuge X, Yee‘s project imagines a world where scientists have developed a network of floating living environments that sit within the Earth’s troposphere. These habitats are home to refugees who are engaged in environmental research, Yee imagines. Each infrastructure features solar panels and direct-air-capture fans that extract carbon from the atmosphere, converting it into electrical energy. The energy runs through neon strips within the infrastructure’s floors, walls, and roofs.

Yee describes the strips as “veins” designed to circulate utilities throughout the structure. They also act like “muscles” that elongate to accommodate the system’s growth and open and close depending on the weather to allow air and natural light inside. Yee’s entry has been named joint third place in the Redesign the World competition. The other third-placed entry will be revealed tomorrow. “Yee’s entry is an imaginative vision for a floating, technologically advanced future city,” said the Redesign the World judges.

“Despite seeming farfetched, the concept actually showcases achievable technologies such as carbon capture, which will have an important role to play in reversing climate change.”
