Design for an Eco-friendly Community

concorso di idee

scadenza prima fase 01/06/2008

Design a structure in the Virtual World - build the structure in China and Hawaii in the Real World!

arcspace.com and ecolandnow.com, in collaboration with INBAR - International Network for Bamboo and Rattan, invite architects, designers and students to take part in an international competition at arcspace Island in the virtual community, Second Life.

The key competition objective will be to develop a new Eco-friendly Community where people will live, work and visit; an environment which will encourage a wide range of uses, occupied at all times of the day. The goal should be to stimulate social, technical and cultural progress. The function and the relationship between the structures is as important as the individual design. The "structure", maximum 60M2, must respond to the tropical climate and promote the use of hybrid materials using a minimum of 25% bamboo. The living bamboo can be part of the design. Furniture designers are invited to collaborate with architects.

The competition will take place in two phases.
Phase I Spring 2008 (Ending June 1, 2008)
Phase II Fall 2008 (Ending December 1, 2008)

During Phase I the jury will select twelve designs to continue to Phase II of the competition. The presentations will be filmed and shown at arcspace in SL, www.arcspace.com and other international media, to invite the public to comment and vote for an additional three winners who will continue to Phase II.

In Phase II the jury will select the final three winners who will go to China or Hawaii. The three winners selected by popular votes will receive special prizes.
