The POD Challenge

Design, for us, has always been a balance between the tangible and intangible aspects of life.Be it art, music, literature, architecture or cinema. There are some visuals that change our life in the most mysterious ways, Visuals of Uma Thurman and John Travolta's dance in Pulp fiction, the sheer size of the star destroyers in star wars. The gigantic scale of Chandigarh's Corbusien buildings and the humility of Sangath by BV Doshi, The bass in the dhrupad by Gundecha brothers VS the bass in Nucleya's compositions. What are your fondest memories from your initial years of design that aroused curiosity in you to “CREATE” It could be a book, poetry, a movie, a painting, a melody, some personality or your own experiences. But in a visual Pick any of our pieces study them, understand the form and proportions, blow them up, turn them over, make them fly in the sky, make collages, create an abstract version of them, or even deconstruct them and recreate our pieces in a creative and unique setting. Recreate iconic movie scenes with our pieces. Like Ron and Hermoine flying on our pieces, Rafiki lifting baby Simba in our crib . OR IT could be A space-ship from StarWars. Translate one of your memories at your favourite spots in the city using our pieces.

LA+ CREATURE Open International Design Ideas Competitions

LA+ CREATURE explores how we can use design to open our cities, our landscapes, and our minds to a more symbiotic existence with other creatures. The brief asks entrants to choose a nonhuman client and design something—a place, a structure, a product, a process, a system—to improve its life and increase human–nonhuman empathy. Your creature can be any species, any size, and live anywhere.   The competition is open to all design disciplines and will be judged by an outstanding interdisciplinary jury panel comprising TIMOTHY MORTON (philosopher and author of "HyperObjects" and "Dark Ecology"), KATE ORFF (designer of NYC’s “Living Breakwaters” and founding principal, SCAPE), RICHARD WELLER (author of "The Atlas for the End of the World" and chair of landscape architecture, UPenn), JENNIFER WOLCH (coauthor of "Animal Geographies" and former dean of design, UC Berkeley), ANDREW GRANT (designer of Singapore’s iconic “Supertrees” and director of Grant Associates, UK), FARRE NIXON (emerging designer at Kounkey Design Initiative), and CHRIS REED (coauthor of "Projective Ecologies" and founding director, Stoss).
