Outer Space 2019 Competition
Blank Space is thrilled to announce the inaugural Outer Space competition in partnership with ArchDaily, Archinect, and Bustler. The winners will be selected by a jury that includes astronaut Chris Hadfield, David Benjamin, Studio Drift and Chris Precht.
Outer space has always captured the imaginations of the general public. New advances in technology (including comet landings, the Orion Spacecraft, and large scale social experiments leading to a Mars exploration) mean that outer space is no longer a place only astronauts will get to experience – but something you and I can experience within our lifetime.
For a long time, the fantastical visions of space exploration have been rooted in the sci-fi proposals of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Ring worlds, death stars, and space colonies conjure vibrant, psychedelic visions of the future from yesteryear. Since then, advances in space technology have multiplied exponentially. Are these retro visions still the best representation of our future in the stars?
