A House for Pink Floyd : An Open Design Competition

A house for Pink Floyd: Design Competition

There are walls all around us… and the thickest and the tallest are those within. What wall(s) did Roger Waters and Pink Floyd want to break in their immensely successful album The Wall…? Mainly that wall that creates that almost mythical box modern architects especially are notorious for trying to break.
The function of art, almost by definition, is TO BREAK WALLS. Thus, an art that does not “break walls,” that is, an art that does not bring anything new by adding to what we call “tradition” what we call “invention”, fails to do its job. We ask you to explore the generic theme of “breaking the wall” in as many ways as possible and as freely as possible.
Create architecture as intense and inspiring as this celebrated album of Pink Floyd. Listen to the music again, watch the film, and then feel, think, draw and model. BUILD.   BUILD A BROKEN WALL. BUILD A WALL THAT UNITES, NOT ONE THAT SEPARATES. BUILD A BEAUTIFUL WALL. 
Scream; scream as loudly as possible against all the prisons of this world. Against all those artificially built walls that trap all of us in the name of FEAR. TEAR THEM DOWN, dear architect!
