What would you want to tell aliens about the human race? The Pavilion Of Humanity: First Contact is the first in a series of competitions that looks to do just that. In the same way the Pioneer Plaques placed on board the 1972 Pioneer 10 and 1973 Pioneer 11 spacecrafts tell a pictorial story of humanity, the Pavilion of Humanity looks to represent the human race through architecture.
In a world of COVID-19 and climate change, it can be easy to forget some of humanity’s greatest achievements, and this competition is tasking participants with creating an architectural reminder that humanity isn’t all bad.
There are no restrictions set other than the basic laws of physics, apart from that, anything goes.
The Pavilion Of Humanity: First Contact competition is open until November 10, 2020, with winners of the 6,000 € prize fund to be announced on February 23, 2021.
