24H, a competition branch of ideasforward, has called for new ideas about its themed-based international competition, titled "Matrix". The international competition invites all architects, designers, and creative thinkers to develop a new discourse about a social organisation rooted in architecture and derived from its nature, history and architecture language. The competition will select 3 winners and 7 Honorable Mentions.

Ideasforward wants to give young creative people from around the world the opportunity to express their views on the future of societies through their innovative and visionary proposals. 24H is an experimental platform seeking progressive ideas that reflect on emerging themes. The eco design, sustainable architecture, new materials, concepts and technologies are compelling issues in the societies of the future and the involvement of the whole community is imperative. 

In an era of globalization where communication was dominated by the technological revolution, there is the need to rethink the cities and how Man relates in a global World as well as rethink the economic, social and cultural patterns of contemporary societies. The young creatives and thinkers are a precious commodity that we value a lot and so we want to give them a voice.

World Architecture Community is media partner for 24H Competitions and will announce the results on World Architecture Community news.

We live in an Age when everything changes in the blink of an eye. Our conception of reality has ceased to be a physical reality to become a possible unreality. Things may not be and be and Man reinvents himself as BEING. 

The virtual ceases to be a virtuosity of the past towards the future, and begins to be a tool of the new realities in which we live. The dimensions are now different, inserted in the new world with new realities that may come to be, exist, almost complete, but totally virtual.

"Have you ever had a dream, Neo, in which you were so sure it was real? What if you were unable to wake up from this dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?" - Morpheus
