´Unemployed Architect´ competition

BriefUnemployed Architect?? surviving with a temporary job in MacDonalds or Starbucks or simply scratching yourself at home?? Never before have so many unemployed architects been infiltrating other industries to finance a living. Never before has there been the opportunity for so many architectural eyes to evaluate the efficiency of the design of the industry.

If you find that you are flippin´ burgers then stop to re-assess the design…why not place cows in the car park or chickens on the roof of a KFC??

Perhaps the next time on your trip to the benefits office you have a look at the city transport system where you live and improve its efficiency or even re-evaluate where your toilet faeces end up after you drop a bomb at home

The competition is to re-design or create a new design of a system which can be integrated within a building or city. There are no limits on ideas, however, the process must be thought through from start to finish with an element of practicality


Competition examples include:-

´Atelier Bow Wow´ roof bridge in Linz – where a walkway network has been integrated into a disused roof space

´Schweeb´ human powered monorails in Ngongotha – is both efficient and revolutionary, redefining the way humans travel

Underground Waste System – is not a new concept, however its simplicity has literally cleaned up waste management within city centre areas

Electric Vehicle charging in MacDonaldsnot only are they trying to clean up their image, it seams MacDonalds are trying to clean up the motorways

Entrants must effectively integrate a new system or improve an existing one into a current building, city or landscape

The design may be revolutionary, may be simple, however it must be more than aesthetical with an element of efficiency, practicality and compatibility

    Energy seems to be on everyone’s mind these days. So we trade power generators and various other power equipment for every use. Backup Generators, Portable Generators, and Standby Generators. In case you are experiencing any power problems and would like to create your own electricity and gain an advantage in your daily life or business activites, please holler
