COVID-19 has challenged everyone to reimagine how we will use spaces in a post-Covid-19 society. How will movie theaters operate, what about hospitals, universities, and concert halls? Will live sports allow fans in the stands again? Will employees work from home on a permanent basis, if so, what changes are needed to our homes?
These are all valid questions and explorations and coupled with the consistent injustices faced by African Americans, we challenge everyone to think about a new question. How will spaces look in a Just City? A city which has defeated and dismantled racism? What tools will help us get there?
Michael Ford, The Hip Hop Architect calls Hip Hop, the Post Occupancy Evaluation of Modernism. Meaning, hip hop, especially its music is a critique of the environment. But not only does the music critique the built environment, with a careful ear you can hear lyrical references of future spaces, places, and objects which empower and enable black communities to overcome the current injustices faced in the built environment, including education disparities, environmental injustices and police brutality.
This Open Call for Submissions anticipates submissions in various mediums including, but not limited to drawings, songs, models, mobile app concepts, poems, fashion concepts, technological advances, products, etc. all aimed at displaying a Just City. A City which has defeated and dismantled racism. All proposals are welcome, from the most utopian to the most realistic.
Follow The Hip Hop Architect on Instagram for additional live discussions on this topic each night at 8:00pm EST with various guest!
This competition is in no way limited to architecture and we welcome those from other arts and design industries.
