Design Competition: Implications of The End of Oil


Here is a design competition we like: " Designers of all fields are asked to submit designs and concepts for their respective homes and immediate communities, taking into consideration the implications of the "end of oil" on our culture, industries, and lifestyles." They can be tangible submissions of products or textiles, or conceptual submissions including architecture, landscape, urban planning, interiors or fashion design. "Responding to growing unease about our culture's rate of consumption and the notion of peak oil and its implications, THAW 2007 challenges designers of all fields to consider a world without oil and the consequences it would have for our design solutions and how these adaptations would in turn directly impact our lifestyles and immediate communities." Unlike recent American Competitions, this is wide open to competitors worldwide. Hurry: Preliminary registration is Feb 28. ::Thaw O7
