DESCRIPTION
The 10th “Creative Thinking toward Future Homes” Competition Guidelines
2017 Intelligent Green Building Design Competition

Background

‘Intelligent Green Building’, which integrates green building design and intelligent technology is a global trend at the present time. Furthermore, it is also one of the four innovative intelligent industries strongly promoted by the government at this stage. In order to lead the trend of intelligent green building creativity, and to popularize this concept to improve the quality of life of citizens, the Ministry of Interior Architecture and Building Research Institute (ABRI) is conducting 2017 Intelligent Green Building Design Award, which is the 10th annual competition, with the objective of encouraging intelligent green building design. Moreover, actual architecture renovation projects are also welcome to participate, which calls for those incorporating advanced technology and sustainable design in architecture space. The demonstration of ways intelligent green building design improves quality of living spaces both old and new serves as valuable insights for the industries as a whole.


Theme

Intelligent green building designs are getting more and more mature and the development of intelligent communities seem to be the future trend. By introducing sustainable design, information communication, sensor, control and big data technologies into buildings, not only the problems of a single building environment can be solved, but also its connection with the whole community will be improved, which leads to the further satisfaction of people’s demands for safety, health care, energy saving, sustainability, convenience and comfort in their surrounding environment. The focus of this year’s creativity competition is the design of intelligent green building. There are two divisions for this competition to apply for, which are ‘’Creative Thinking’ and ‘Toward Future Home’.

Division A: Creative Thinking

With times changing so fast, the objective of this division is to come up with ideas on how to facilitate co-prosperity between the development of buildings and environmental protection, cultural preservation and innovative service, by ways of architecture designs or community (campus, urban or rural areas) space design. These designs are to be sustainable or adopt intelligent system/product/service model solutions as well as using advanced technology, such as ICT, sensor, big data, IoT, and cloud service etc. The designs also serve to satisfy the needs people have for safety, health care, energy saving and sustainability, convenience and comfort, etc. Moreover, we are now especially looking for intelligent environment technology proposals focusing on intelligent community and home care, to develop an elderly-friendly environment and promoting happy living and to help solve the social problems resulting from the aging society and low birth rate.

Division B: Toward Future Home

Introducing advanced technology, such as ICT, sensor, big data, IoT, and cloud service etc., into existing building (or buildings reconstructed after demolition) projects(referring to those building projects that have acquired the permits and include no illegal construction), to solve problems that people face in everyday living and to satisfy the needs for safety, health care, energy saving and sustainability, convenience and comfort, etc., demonstrating what quality life will look like after the improvement work. We are especially looking for proposals integrating existing (or buildings reconstructed after demolition) architectures and community and home care related intelligent environment technology, to develop an elderly-friendly environment and promoting happy living and to help solve the social problems resulting from the aging society and low birth rate.
