By the power of pen, pencil and computer mouse, we have definitive proof that architectural drawing is alive and well in 2020!
After a thorough review of all 100 Finalists by our stellar jury, Architizer is excited to announce the winners of the2nd Annual One Drawing Challenge。今年提交质量比以往任何时候都更好，通过架构语言讲述了强大的故事。2020年的动荡性质为参赛者提供了充分的灵感，其中许多图纸对来自Covid-19到气候危机的广泛世界事件形成了迷人的视觉评论。
今年，非学生大奖获奖者是Bless Yee, an Associate at亨德尔建筑师，对于她绘图“单独”，在地下室的蜂窝状网络中封装2020的详细剖视图。与此同时，学生大奖获奖者是Hannah Christy and Craig Findlayof the内布拉斯加州林肯大学。他们的绘图题为“混凝土阿特拉（NTI）”，提供了在重新浏览导弹筒仓的老化墙壁内进行的回收活动。
One Drawing Challenge juror Suchi Reddy, founder of architecture and design firmReddymade, was suitably impressed by this year’s entries. “The submissions were skillful and complex, and the winners were expressive even without the description — when layered with that, they are even richer. Drawing as a means of emotive communication is alive and well!”
Without further ado, explore the winning drawings and 10 commended entries for this competition, complete with accompanying descriptions written by their creators:
Non-Student Winner: “Together Alone” by Yee Bless,亨德尔建筑师
“Today, social distancing has manifested a new definition of ‘together’. The physical proximity of people and buildings have been reduced to the ‘virtual’. ‘Together’ we isolate, ‘together’ we work, and ‘together’ we zoom into the lens of our homes and struggles amidst a pandemic, the intrinsic fight for human rights, and survival of the everyday.
Through the convention of a section, this drawing shows the activities in the depth of the repurposed missile silo. Figures sourced from The Age of Enlightenment depict radicals productively recycling materials into a built environment erecting towards the sky. Facilitated by the cold war era framework, the occupants build upon their neighbor’s successes allowing an innate desire for vertical growth to materialize.”
“The Minute Before Tomorrow”由Nada Matar，CallisonRTKL
“She murmured to me bluntly: you do not belong here. I answered bluntly: I do not belong here. I never managed to package her neatly when we were separated. Because I never had the courage to tell myself that I left, never to be back again. Now I am a shadow of myself, restlessly wandering Earth. “Do you often go back?” I am repeatedly asked. And I lift my gaze to hide my silence. I never left. She lives in me.
Our soul is a shelter. Cities live in us as much as we are in them. They inhibit our memories and tell our stories, they transmute, live, die and glow in our fantasies.
All this makes me think that every day that there are new works, exciting experiences are born, which must be appreciated to remember them forever and this will reflect majestic buildings in the world.
“Here Everywhere” by HansVillamayor
Such unease can be teased with many (paradoxically relevant) cognitive dissonances:
social / distant
cozy / claustrophobic
isolated / connected
In the midst of “these strange times,” these paradoxes blur distinctions and dimensions, imbuing architecture (spaces, surfaces, objects) with a multiplicity of meanings:
The bed is
The couch is
The table is
The desk is
The counter is
The floor is….
When there is no place to go but everything to do, everywhere is here.
When everything is available but only from home, here is everywhere.”
“Podalida” byJoakim Dahlqvist
Decoding WasteCity by Andrea Zamora and Juanita Echeverry, Universidad de Los Andes
“The COVID-19 emergency, together with our consumer behavior, triggered pollution and waste production rates. This catastrophe led to city abandonment, where buildings became obsolete.
Returning to the ruined city implied rethinking the management of resources. Waste colonization became the strategy to survive reality. In this way, the new territory is shaped by the overlapping of multiple time scenarios where the interrelated layers reconcile conflictive situations.
Here, life is possible due to the existence of new mobility systems developed within the living planes. Bridges allow horizontal passages, while the redesign of Bogotá’s public transport tracks along vertical structures that pivot through the coatings of the new reality.
What used to be is essential for what is to come. Each layer is indispensable for life to endure in the new territory. By decoding the decay accumulated over decades and reconstructing from what is no longer usable, life can develop in WasteCity.”
Commended Entry: “Liberty Landfill Plaza” by James Wines,SITE New York Professor emeritus at Penn State University
“Sanctuary of Disney’s Unloved Children” by Xinze Seah, Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL)
“Disney has shaped the world of animation with films such as Snow White, Pinocchio, and Cinderella. These films have had global acclaim and generations have grown up influenced by the “magic” of Disney.
On 8th April 1999, Disney abandoned Discovery island, a Safari zoo containing exotic birds and animals. To date, Disney has faced many allegations of abuse and mistreatment of its staff and animals.
Thus this project is an exploration into the “dark side” of Disney and to create a redemption for its forgotten victims. Inspired by the Disney film Cinderella, in which Cinderella’s furry friends construct a dress from the unwanted fabrics and beads deemed as “trash. With this dress, the forgotten will attempt to outshine the “tyrant”, Disney.”
Commended Entry: “The Warehouse of Unfinished Ideas” by格雷厄姆凯尔曼
“The nature of the creative process consists of a chain of smaller ideas, tangents, and design iterations. These concepts are essential stepping stones leading to the final output. Some might argue, they are meaningful works in their own right.I often imagine unfinished architectural ideas archived within a vast warehouse as a collection of physical prototypes and miniature models. They loom in their various scales and unfinished states, waiting for the opportunity to be applied to future projects.
These fragments are studied, reflected upon, and referenced. They exist prior to a project’s impetus, and remain long past it’s completion.Will these undeveloped ideas lie dormant for eternity, or will they one day have the ability to be deployed to their full potential? Do they truly matter if they are unseen or unfinished? For now they wait, eternally housed within the warehouse of the mind.”
“Owls and Vultures” by Dennis Allain, Dennis Allain ADI
”这个概念是基于设计一只鸟aviary contained within an abandoned hanger. We do not know how the door was left open. The explorer is also left to question why such a large cage was constructed in the first place. The detail in construction gives us a sense of purpose and the sheer scale of the vaulted ceiling provides the viewer scale. However the full meaning is mysterious and the secrets the cage once held are left up to the witnesses interpretation.”
“View of Apartment #5, a Labyrinth and Repository of Spatial Memories” by Clement Laurencio, University College London (UCL), Bartlett School of Architecture
After many months of being locked up in my apartment, something peculiar began happening…
My memories had allowed me to escape my apartment.”
