The competition focuses on identifying metal objects that have long been forgotten, are in a state of abandonment or ruins and re purpose these objects into to a functional typology of a residence. Repurposing these objects into a shelter speaks to infinite possibilities of adaptive reuse of metal artifacts like trains, life guard stations, planes, ships, sea forts, cranes, satellite dishes, nuclear reactors, bridges, cars etc. The idea is to re-purpose these metal objects into a functional space that would otherwise be destined to the nearest landfill. The participants are to design a residence by using these abandoned objects whose former function has now become obsolete.
