Design Competition – SUPERHERO HOUSE

Design project for all students of B.Arch, B.Plan, Interior Design, Product design and other design and animation courses.

This time we want you to freak out more than ever before! We want you to design a house for a superhero!!! We want you to imagine and create a superhero – make a house for the superhero as you think your superhero will need and like it. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU CAN’T USE ANY EXISTING SUPERHERO.   

As always, you have the complete freedom to design the house on land, floating in the air, floating on water or even under water.

Make sure that the house has the following spaces –

      • Sleeping space
      • Dining Space
      • Kitchen
      • Workspace / studio / laboratory
      • Bathroom and toilet
      • Apart from these you can add any other function that you find necessary
      • The design and the form of the house must have a strong concept and a meaning. The visual and spatial forms should spring from an original idea and concept of your own.

Note – The design that you submit is original and your own. We are strictly against copying of ideas and have disqualified many entries in the past that were directly copied from other sources.
