Aug. 28 – Dec. 6, 2009
On the occasion of the exhibitions Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward and Learning By Doing, the Guggenheim and Google SketchUp invite amateur and professional designers from around the world to enter Design It: Shelter Competition.
We have finished judging our first 3-D design competition, and can now present the winners. We had a great level of participation, with 41 entries being submitted. More importantly, the quality of the entries was generally very impressive and the competition was very close, as several of the winners won by the smallest margin possible.
Here’s an update from the design contest. We have less than two weeks left before the deadline May 1st, so keep those entries coming!
We have been contacted by Will Pierce who would like to design a seastead with an architectural drawing. However, as he doesn’t have a computer he cannot digitize the design to 3-D and thus cannot compete in the contest.
Today, we’re kicking off a Seastead Design Contest with a $1,000 Grand Prize and lots of other great awards. To win, use 3-D modeling software to build the best-looking and most creative seastead you can. We supply you with a 3-D model of a bare ClubStead platform — what you create on top of that platform is up to you.
