Background

Our home will always be the place for which we feel the deepest affection, no matter where we are. Home is our ‘little world’ where we dream of getting condensed after a hard day at work.’ Home is the place where we desire to be after a long vacation, to be able to feel the warmth of the walls surrounding us. Home is a very important link between a man and his idea of safety.

A man starts to fantasize about his ‘dream home’ from his childhood. Be it the candy covered “Gingerbread house’’ from Hansel and Gretel, dark and scary “Castle Dracula”, peculiar, funny looking Hobbit houses from The Lord of the Rings or the futuristic tenements from Star Wars, we always refer to some very surreal, outlandish and never-seen-before examples for our ‘future homes’. We create enchanting sand castles, sketch out fascinating built forms and dream of fairy tale-esque magical setting for our homes. We build our dream homes in the sky, inside the ground, on the trees, cliffs, besides the sea and what not. But as we grow up, our thought process towards our ‘dream home’ takes a practical turn that is limited by modern world trends, materiality, context and laws. We keep our imaginations aside and tend to follow the usual set of codes and principles required to create a house.

The aim of the competition is to manifest into reality the idea of your dreams, and create a house based on it. The competition aims to create a pure and highly imaginative expression of a home that will have a degree of surrealism to it.
