Winner 6000$ Runner – Up – 1400$ x 6 People’s Choice – 600$ x 4 Honorable Mention – 600$ x 12

BRIEF OF COMPETITION In a world where technology has created unprecedented opportunities to make different experiences more accessible it may be valuable to consider how we can harness these technologies and create spaces that are more universal. The challenge here is to create a space for music for the deaf whereby with the use of technology music is not just heard but also felt. A space here through the means of sensory stimulation music is made more accessible. The design need not be a formal space but a more accessible and well-equipped space where music and theatre can be experienced by all. You must consider the different sensory experiences that are related to sound and how they are experienced by both individuals with hearing and those without. It also might be valuable to consider that even in deafness there are various levels at which people can or cannot hear. Your design may draw inspiration from existing musical performance space typologies or attempt to imagine new experiential designs altogether.

Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
