Design It: Shelter competition

For the occasion of the exhibitions, Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward and Learning By Doing, the Guggenheim and Google SketchUp invited amateur and professional designers from around the world to submit a 3-D shelter design for any location in the world using Google SketchUp and Google Earth. Over the course of the summer, nearly 600 contestants from 68 different countries submitted designs that met the competition requirements. Current Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture students then selected ten finalists for the People’s Prize award. Public online voting for this award closed on October 10.

Winners for the People’s Prize and the Juried Prize have now been announced. Congratulations to David Mares of Setúbal, Portugal, winner of the People’s Prize for CBS – Cork Block Shelter; and David Eltang, hailing from Aarhus, Denmark, winner of the Juried Prize for his design, SeaShelter!
