    Introduction: In this competition, participants have to design a space on the street where people view their spatial and social environments as a playground of knowledge, a place to see, touch, feel, taste, listen to, socialize with and learn from. A place where they see the world very differently and attach and take different meanings and experiences from and to people, to forms, places, spaces, and things, most importantly the intangible relationship between people and the street. The scale of intervention, programs, and site is up to participants. While designing, participants have to keep in mind that Architecture is the discourse of events as much as the discourse of spaces.

    Summary:

    Challenge

    There appears to be a paradigm shift in the thinking behind museums. Its conventional function has evolved and continues to evolve. In traditional museums, learning was accomplished through inert observation and hearing rather than active participation. Architecture is not only what it looks like, but also what it does; from that point of view, can we conceive the street as a performative museum? 

    As a matter of fact, Streets are the lifelines of any city. If someone wants to explore the culture of any city, the streets are the best place to wander all day long. One can experience this with tea stalls and street food carts even with street artists’ works and graffiti, which has made streets one of the crucial city elements that signify the public life of the place.
