In line with the theme, the Architect 2013 Organizing Committee is launcing as ASEAN Architectural Competition seeking solutions that can demonstrate how architecture can re-define the future of ASEAN borders. The competition is highly conceptual and focusing on local border sites, specific cultural, social and ecological issues of the 10 ASEAN nations, with the aim of improving their existing conditions. Full details of the competition can also be found on the official website at http://www.borderlesscompetition.com.
The competition brings attention to the spaces along the borders of the 10 ASEAN nations, with the aim of improving their existing condition.
While there has been much disccussion about achieving a "borderless" condition through economic and legislative initiatives, currently, the actual border spaces themselves have been neglected and are lagging behind these developments.
For many people inhabiting these areas, the border remains a place of division and uncertanty. Out dated infrastructure affects their sense of security and livelihood. Socio-economic and cultural differences lead to misunderstandings and ainequalities. In some areas, borders have become spaces of conflict and dispute.
"in order to achieve "borderless", we must understand the space of the borders themselves."
