Being architects and designers, we are always asked to design places that suit humans in every way possible. We are asked to make spaces that are human interactive and those that suit their consciousness the best. But can you design a space that challenges the person’s senses and makes him reconsider where he is and what is he doing?
This competition is all about that.
THE LABYRINTH is an architectural maze. Is architectural maze even a word!? We don’t know and we don’t care.
Then what do we mean by that!?
Let’s say, it is a building built like a maze with a starting point and an ending point. With a lot of dead ends, difficult choices and various openings, but only one path to exit.
Design a maze in a building for people to have fun in. You can use all kinds of architectural elements like doors, windows, stairs, slides and what not. There can be dark zones, mirror zones, scary zones and whatever comes to your mind.
The starting and ending point of the maze should be on ground floor only.
Architectural elements should be majorly used.
It should look like a regular building from outside.
There will be ticketed entries for the building and will be used by 3 customers at a time.
The building can go upto 12m with ground coverage of 100 sqm maximum.
So basically, you have to challenge your problem solving mind to design a problem creating design.
