For the World Architecture Day 2018 celebration, Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia Sarawak Chapter (PAMSC) and co-organiser , INTODESIGN Lab are organising the Cardboard City Challenge for the second time with more participants and exciting programmes, which includes the launching of this Cardboard Pavilion Competition. What is more exciting than exploring architectural ideas, geometries , forms , systems and experience constructability with cardboard?
Architecture plays an important role in inspiring everybody, especially the younger generation. Thus, we aim to reach out for creative designs from the public through this interactive family event. The competition is to design a Cardboard Pavilion to house creative learning activities for children and inspire them through architectural spatial experience.
In 2017, 12 primary schools with a total of 240 children participated in the ‘Cardboard City Challenge’ installation. A further 120 students from local colleges and universities volunteered for the event. It was a collective effort of 360 students working together to design an ‘Imaginary Future City’ from cardboard and tapes with an approximate 400 m2 footprint. The event was a success with 1800 people from the public turning up during the last two days of ‘Cardboard City Play Day’.
After the exhibition, the pavilion will be donated to a local school in Kuching, Malaysia. This cardboard pavilion will definitely enhance the learning process of the school children. Most importantly school children can explore more about recyclable materials and to raise awareness of global warming.
