Zombie Safe House Competition Winners 2011…..ARRRGGH!!
Posted: Monday, November 07, 2011 |

One of our favorite architectural design competitions has just announced the winning entries of its 2011 edition: the Zombie Safe House Competition. Sure, laugh about it, but once the postapocalyptic days are upon us and roaming hordes of the undead come for your guts, the term "sustainable design" takes on a whole new meaning.

Austin Fleming, winner of this year's Gold Shovel Award, explains his portable design solution Vagabond Mobile Safe House Device: "Within the Mobile Skeleton, the spring-loaded ribs apply a counter weighted load evenly dispersed on the periphery of the cabin. The concrete anchor bolts are for additional support to prevent shifting. You can buy yours for just 4 easy payments of 24.95 +S&H!!"

But the handy design solutions don't stop here. As Austin commented on his proposal, "reflective surface = zombies don’t attack other zombies." - Smart!

Hello!

The "ZSHC Choice/Best Bug In Award: Morte by Jordan Lloyd Androg (UK)" should read "ZSHC Choice/Best Bug In Award: Z-Rated:Zombie-Proof your own home by Jordan Lloyd & Roger Cooper (UK)"

We've contacted the ZSHC HQ to correct the errata.

Thanks,

- Jordan J. Lloyd, UK

Hey Jordan, apologies for the mix-up - the good folks at ZSHC already updated us, too, and we've corrected the info.

Congratulations again on the special award and this fantastic competition entry! The 'running zombie' image had us all cracking up here at Bustler. smile

Sweet stuff. But Vagabond should probably change their poster.... The zombie street scene is one of the concept posters for Left 4 Dead. I'd hate to see Valve come after them for it. http://img.neoseeker.com/v_concept_art.php?caid=19496

Civilization can survive a zombie outbreak. That was kind of the point of our web series, "Universal Dead" (starring Doug Jones, DB Sweeney and Gary Graham): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRxGiuLR9X0&feature=list_related&playnext=1&list=SPC325EC6D9594A7D3
