The Ecological Community
Announcing a multi-disciplinary design competition open to all currently enrolled students at any college or university in the U.S.A, Canada or Mexico.
The focus of the competition is to go beyond yesterday’s concerns between, centralized cities and suburbs and between automobiles and transit, all in order to focus on the precedent -setting dynamics of the digital revolution and humanity’s first-ever global civilization.
The competition has nothing to do with the easier arguments between what we think of today as cities and suburbs, nor is it about retrofitting the past. Its purpose is to explore idealized, resource-efficient ways for addressing 21st century limitations and opportunities. The goal of the competition is to describe and illustrate, in compelling terms, that ecological design, properly understood, must become the new standard. The only limitations as to how you frame your response are those of your own vision concerning the exciting the technological and behavioral achievements that are possible by way of design
