    Geez, what a trash!

  • felix

    ian+ renderings are outstanding

  • so

    This is really not worthwhile to be shown on Dezeen! I totally agree…WHAT A TRASH!

  • niels

    I have to agree that most of these projects are far to formalistic for me. It just looks like architects showing off just how complex forms they can produce instead of giving a smart answer to the context and the problem of housing in general. On the other hand the big problem, to me, lies within the contest itself it doesn’t seem there’s any context in the assignment given to these architects. As a last remark: as decadent as these designs may be, they look more justified than most off the international contributions (especially Hadid’s)

    super! Great vision of the people who came up with the idea to ask these architects. Creative world needs more of these ambitious people.

  • roadkill

    what a nice collection of banal proposals… bless!

  • hendrix

    yeah, this is BS

    Oh dear, I have to agree with the previous sentiments. Banal beyond belief, they look like a collection of second-year student projects (saying first year would be too harsh) not a supposed next-generation of forward thinking architects.

  • sucks…everything look like beginning of 90’s

  • At first my eye had to adjust to the thought of living in these creations. Yet, with a feng shui background, I am drawn to the curves which tend to move the energy around more freely. I think I would be into it. It’s taking Modern way into the future and I’d have to design the interior with balance in mind. –Cheryl Janis, author of lifestyle and design blog Planet Pink n’ Green –

    huummm, why have \Venice collected these debris…?

  • yrag

    I’m not trying to be glib, but Radix House looks like a ruined bunker. Maybe because the photo is grayscale and it’s surrounded by sickly looking twigs.
