ARCHITECTURE STUDENT'S SUCCESS IN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION TO DESIGN A HOUSE FOR "PINK FLOYD"

 
4th year Architecture student Md. Tanvir Hasan makes it among the First Ten [9th Place]  in an International Student Competition to design a house for Pink Floyd. Tanvir's achievement is a global recognition of the standard of undergraduate architecture program at AIUB. The competition launched by  ICARCH (International Competitions in Architecture), in partnership with Atelierul de Proiectare, wished to celebrate architecture in its most liberal, revolutionary state. The competition ambitiously focused on creating a typology of architecture inspired by the dictum “Architecture is frozen music”, a true manifesto of rebellion against obsolete values of the consumerist society. As many of us know, Pink Floyd were and are considered to be one of the icons of revolutionary, progressive music, that took to using sonic experiments and philosophical lyrics to cross social boundaries and redefine values. In the same way, “A House for Pink Floyd” was to translate the band’s music philosophy into architecture – an attempt all the more legitimate, in this case, if we are to consider that Three of the founding members of Pink Floyd studied architecture. The competition focused on creating any object of architecture that transcends rules and standardization and innovates through itself. There were no constraints in regard to site, program or size, in order to provide maximum freedom to participants. All finalist projects shall be published within the album "A house for Pink Floyd contest”, to be released by the beginning of 2014. The winning projects will also appear in the 10th issue of the Atelierul de Proiectare magazine, to be found at www.adep.ro. Also, an exhibition will be held at the University of Architecture and Urban Planning Ion Mincu of Bucharest, presenting the 30 finalists of the contests.
