Design a shelter competition: Guggenheim/SketchUp

As well as the chance to design the new Shedworking HQ, there's also the opportunity to to take part in a competition run by the Guggenheim and Google Sketchup as part of their Learning By Doing exhibition on the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Essentially, designers can submit (using SketchUp) a 3-D design for a shelter in any location in the world but it can be no larger than 100 square feet (9.3 square metres), and no taller than 12 feet (3.6 metres). The shelter must offer protection from the elements and provide a space for one person to study and sleep. No water, gas or electricity is allowed. Closing date is August 23. More details at the Guggenheim's site here. Pictured above is student Michael Desbarres' Shelter, 2009, inspired by rail yards, as an example of the School's students' work.
