Calling Green Architects: Scion Floorplan Competition

OK, it is a very cool car from Toyota and it is small and quite fuel-efficient, but it doesn't stand out and say "green". We think its showrooms should, and think that green designers everywhere should enter the competition to design a showroom for them. Look what happened in Toronto: Roland Rom Colthoff of Quadrangle Architects designed a "showroom in the sky" for BMW out of an old soap factory by the highway into a "sleek transparent "toy box" of cars. BMW has taken the automobile dealership and tipped it up vertically to create a distinctly urban form." on a flood-challenged toxic site, winning all kinds of awards. Imagine what you might do with Scion- plant a tree on the roof for every car sold? Go for it. ::Scion Floor Plan Competition
