4H competition 12th edition – utopia

June 4, 2016


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. We are 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 voice, because we believe in their value and their ideas and because together we can change the world.

A perfect construction shouldn’t remain imperfect just because it does not take place.

The Utopia of life is more about the lack of action than the lack of will.

Wills are easy.

Utopias are complex but not impossible.

Everything has a beginning, like a house has its first brick, and the great utopia of the world is to imagine the walls, way before they are built;

Is to fall in love with a garden, having just seen a single flower.

Is to imagine a picture, by only have seen a reflex of it and believe that what you see is the absolute truth.

We are all Utopia, within the untouchable horizon.
