essay prize dwelling in asian citiesAbout:

The second cycle of the CEPT Essay Prize (2019-2020) will focus on ‘Dwelling in Asian Cities’. The term Asian here will refer to a more geographical location of places and cities, and the many histories from which contemporary Asia emerges, rather than any abstraction of a cultural typology emerging from an unproductive East-West binary.

The essays could address:
  1. What are the imaginations of Dwelling? Dwelling as aspirations, dreams, mythologies, mysteries, struggles, and more…
  2. What are the challenges of Dwelling – in the ways we understand land politics, economic shifts, cultural slides, nation and nationality, governance and mobility?
  3. What are the opportunities of new imaginations of the contemporary through Dwelling – by nature of innovations and reinterpretations, neighnourhoods recalibrated, and the will to self-assertion?
