Laka Competition 2017

Architecture which lives as a living organism, it responds to the external stimuli and develops because of it.

A grand integration of design fraternity from around the world, sets out to explore and identify gen-next ideas for architecture that reacts. It illustrates architecture which is able to respond and adjust dynamically to the current needs and circumstances. These circumstances are often unpredictable, but their consequences can be crucial. The architecture that reacts is the architecture that lives as a living organism, since it responds to the external stimuli and develops because of it.
