Next Big One: International Open Ideas Competition


August 12, 2014
by Canadian Architect

Next Big One is an international open ideas competition organized by the Architecture for Humanity Vancouver Chapter, and raises awareness of the high-magnitude earthquake and tsunami events that plague cities around the world.  The competition calls upon the design community to offer fresh perspectives and innovative ideas in designing for disasters.

The challenge of this single-stage open-ideas competition is to propose an innovative design solution that can mitigate natural disasters while simultaneously providing permanence for the community. The proposal must satisfy the following criteria: exemplify innovation in disaster design; promote community resiliency before and after disasters; and meet the multi-hazard parameters for the worst-case scenario.

Entrants may register as teams of design professionals or emerging designers (students). 

Entry information, along with all competition details, can be found at www.nextbigone.org. Registration closes at 11:59pm PDT on August 31, 2014, and submissions are due at 11:59pm PDT on September 30, 2014.  Winners will be announced on October 31, 2014.
