Metropolis Next Generation Design Competition: FIX OUR ENERGY ADDICTION

Rising energy costs present new design problems.

Redesign the broken models of the 20th century. Challenge our patterns of living and working in a fuel-hungry world…come up with solutions that connect us, make us more efficient, more humane.

Ask yourself…
How would I bring work closer to home?
Can a product help eliminate long commutes?
What can I do to revitalize old ideas such as living above the store?
What kind of interiors or furnishings does a telecommuter really need?
Or follow your own dreams…what calls out for a major redesign?

Focus on one area that needs fixing—products, interiors, buildings and landscape, communication systems, or anything else you can imagine—and develop your idea fully.

Open to all designers in practice 10 years or less.

The Next Generation Design Competition is open to any designer or architect in practice for ten years or less, as well as design students.
