The threat of mankind by the undead is a topic that has been neglected by architectural design for too long. The happier we are that the 2010 Zombie Safe House Competition is finally tackeling this important issue. The spatial program was as challenging as the zombie threat itself: weapons storage, chemical storage, holding cell, quarantine showers — all leading up to the most essential design task: How will you keep zombies out of your safe house?
Deadline (or shall we say...undeadline) was last Monday, November 8, and now the public has a saying who should be the final winner. Head over to the competition website and cast your vote...while you still can.
These are the four designs asking for your vote:
Entry One: 40 Day Z POD
Entry Two: SS Huckleberry
Entry Three: Mountain Getaway
Entry Four: Sears Roebuck 003-b
