Bunyan Hackathon I

Housing

Abstract Bridge

Bunyan’s workshop (Hackathon) is a complement for what was started in the webinar "Post Corona Housing", which mainly aims to create visions for architectural designs related to housing for people with limited income, after noting that this group had –specially- suffered in their housings during the pandemic, we also aim to suggest different architectural samples in different places of the world that meet their cultural, living, social and humanitarian needs within limited potentials, in terms of funds or even as a building area.

The event engages students, architects, interior designers and structural engineers as well, with local engineering companies related to housing projects, as the design will take a place in existed housings, with real data such as shop drawings from these companies.
 

All Designs will be taken into consideration, the aim of the workshop is not to compare the results, but rather to collect perceptions from a very important category in the architectural community, which is the students.

Abstract Bridge

The hackathon sheds light on the task of designing specific parts in the dwelling through solutions that may be at the level of a single apartment (a space / a furniture / or any design piece in the house) or even the entire housing complex, and this part differs from one team to another depending on the country or region or the expected result of this design in general and determined by the responsible committee of the hackathon.

The goal of the hackathon is to try to imagine future visions in a practical way that emphasizes that the appropriate architectural solutions for a healthy and valuable human life are not exclusive to a specific group of society, and that everyone should participate in raising societal awareness of the right of comfortable and flexible housing design through all circumstances.

The hackathon aims after its finished to attach these results and the proposed designs in its brochure of the Post-Corona webinar. It also aims to publish these Designs and raise awareness of this right and its consequences. It also aims to provide these results to housing consulting firms to give them the option to actually adopt them in the implementation of their projects.
