The Human City Design Award That Looks for Good Designs Around the World Selects the Grand Prize Winner and Hosts Its 3rd Award Ceremony at the DDP
Marking its third anniversary, the Human City Design Award hosted an online award ceremony at the DDP on 21st March and selected House of Dreams for its Grand Prize winner. The Award is an international award program that selects design projects that benefit people, society and the environment.
The House of Dreams designed by the Insitu Project is a project to create a village community space using an abandoned cave located in Dengfeng (Zhoushan), Henan, China with wastes in the surrounding area. The name of this project symbolizes the collective memory of the elderly people who grew up in this cave. The community space includes guest rooms, amenity facility, shared kitchen, dining room and exhibition space. Moreover, its surface displays stories of individual residents from over 100 villages in the vicinity who participated in waste collection and construction.
Along with the Grand Prize winner, the third Human City Design Award also selected the following best practices as winners from various countries, including Goyohan Taxi (Goyohan M) (CO:ACTUS and SK TELECOM, Korea) which assists safe driving and smooth communication between passengers and taxi drivers with hearing impairment, OOZOORO1216 (EUS+Architects, Korea) which created a dedicated space for “Tween” generation aged between 12 and 16 by the participation of “Tween” users, Accessible Beaches (No Barrier, Turkey) that enabled the elderly and people with disabilities on wheelchairs to enjoy the beach more conveniently, and Gardens in the Air – Neighbourhood Lights (Nomad Garden S. L., Spain) which reuses the water generated from air conditioners.
Each and every winner inspires cities around the world, showcasing the role of good design. The winner designs are on display at the webpage of the Human City Design Award (http://humancitydesignaward.or.kr/en ).
The Human City Design Award sponsored by the Seoul Metropolitan Government, and hosted and organized by the Seoul Design Foundation was launched in 2019 to spread the good influence of design and value of design.
