Core77 ran a 1-hour design competition looking for designers to spend literally one hour on an emergency shelter concept. I’m not sure if what I came up with is technically a ‘pop-up shelter’ as the competition asks for but it was fun to put this earthbag and pallet hybrid concept together in an hour.
The Open Office, designed by Kenny, won the 2009 shed design competition at Secrets of Shed Building. One of the key features of this garden office is a set of sliding wood panels mounted to a rail system on the exterior of the building. They serve to block sunlight as well as provide privacy when needed. Congratulations Kenny!
This design competition ends October 31st… and I thought I had missed the entry deadline. It looks like the competition is steep so I better pull some of my most creative ideas out if I’m going to have a chance at winning. You can enter too… the more the merrier. Read more at Shedworking.
Secrets of Shed Building is having a garden shed/office/studio design competition. The entry deadline is midnight GMT on October 31, 2009. The winner takes home an Apple iPod nano. For those of you not entering it should still be interesting to see the designs that come out from the tiny house and shedworking community.
