Design Challenge: Outer space has always captured the imaginations of the general public. New advances in technology (including comet landings, the Orion Spacecraft, and large scale social experiments leading to a Mars exploration) mean that outer space is no longer a place only astronauts will get to experience - but something you and I can experience within our lifetime. Outer Space competition is seeking proposals that envision space exploration in the near future (100-200 years). What kinds of structures will be developed to move, house and sustain people? How will robotics, AI, autonomous spacecraft, and satellites enhance our reach?

Design Challenge: In ARCHmedium we think that given the immense value of the architectural and urban heritage of Berlin, a museum dedicated to these disciplines will have a special value. Its main mission will be to spread the architectural culture, transmit, generate knowledge and support the architectural quality of the city. The competition is for the proposal of a polyhedral space that awakens the critical spirit so that citizens become active characters in the architectural and urban debate of the future.
