Archistart

FRC2017

Floating Room Competition

Water isolates, multiplies and reflects.

Living on water is a challenge that humans have been taking up for a long time. The Amsterdam houseboats and the Floating Piers at Lake Iseo by Christo + JC show the charm of creating a relationship with water. Besides being a peninsula in the heart of the Mediterranean sea, Italy is also a country rich of water bodies, like lakes, lagoons, canals and streams.

Theme

The competition requires to design a double/twin “special room” with restroom, imagining it to be placed on natural or artificial water bodies, like Lake Iseo or La Darsena (Milan’s city dock) – by way of example, participants are asked to locate the designed room in one or both these reference sites indeed.

The architectural volume should have a maximum size of 25 sq m and a maximum height of 5 m, based on a platform of maximum 30 sq m. The room should be provided with a sleeping accommodation for 2 people, a restroom/wellness area and any possible special spaces.
