The Algiers 20xx competition international ideas competition sought disruptive ideas for urban design. The scope of the intervention was the bay of Algiers. Entrants were challenged to imagine a design intervention in an area defined as The Matrix. The intervention would create a strong and unprecedented link through the surrounding urban grid.

 

My proposal titled the ‘Superliminal Matrix’ placed 2nd in the competition out of 439 registered participants from 56 countries.

PROJECT SUMMARY:

The Superliminal Matrix: An epicentre for connectivity.

Using biomorphism and biomimicry as precedents, the superliminal matrix proposes a new connective tissue within the Bay of Algiers that consolidates disparate elements of mobility and communication infrastructure into a single entity. It reflects an approach to technology that is not subservient – the building as machine – but rather, egalitarian. The structure assumes the role of both landmark and critical infrastructure.
