Movin'On Challenge Design 2022: the 3 winning projects are finally revealed
Movin'On unveils the three winners of the Movin'On Challenge Design, whose theme for the 2022 edition was "DELIVERED: bringing people what they need".
From 1er September 2021 to 1er March 2022, artists, designers, engineers, architects, urban planners and creative people from all over the world were invited to participate in this unique competition evaluated by a prestigious international jury.
First prize: AGORA, Damián Mora, Pau Verdú, Fabiana Pando, Víctor Fernández, María Mora - Spain.
Focusing on access to culture, the team's AGORA project draws its inspiration from Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.
The AGORA concept thus plans to open up delivery - usually limited to goods or services - to other areas, allowing the most significant number of people to experience cultural and entertainment spaces in the flesh.
Second prize: GAC FORMA, Sharon Ramalingam Radhakrishnan - India.
Second place goes to Sharon Ramalingam Radhakrishnan for his concept GAC FORMA. His project provides a new solution adapted to the challenges of automobile traffic present in many cities. Built around a subscription service, it predicts the end of a car ownership culture, a practice responsible for significant space consumption and street congestion for parking purposes.
GAC FORMA is also planning a car model that folds widthwise, allowing a considerable gain in space.
Third prize: R.R:ALPHA, Sheik Imthiyas Ahamed - India.
Third place in the Movin'On Challenge Design is awarded to Sheik Imthiyas Ahamed. The R.R:ALPHA project imagines an automobile capable of connecting rural and urban areas to open up regions that are sometimes isolated and subject to a significant departure.
Combining a contraction wheel and a zorbing ball, R.R:ALPHA provides a feasible and functional solution, allowing the simultaneous transport of a large number of goods on different terrains; even in case of flooding, the vehicle becomes amphibious.
