Powder Mountain architectural design competition

Shedworkers with an architectural interest will be interested in the Summit Powder Mountain Design Competition, linked to the innovative community in Utah centred on entrepreneurship, creative achievement, and global change. Entrants must design a cabin prototype (see above for a recent submission) to "push forward the conversation around what it means to build responsibly at 8,400 feet in the Wasatch Range". Here's some details:
Summit is inviting architects, students, engineers, and builders to develop designs of residences on a mountain that embodies the ideals of Summit’s growing community – sustainability, the use of natural materials, and humble expression. The winning design will guide the direction of Powder Mountain’s architecture and influence the development of 500+ single family homes. The winner will also be invited to attend Summit at Sea, the next big Summit gathering on a voyage to the Caribbean, to present his/her design and vision.
The registration deadline is October 9 and the last day to submit a design is October 16. The jury panel is led by the award winning Todd Saunders ofSaunders Architecture whose designs we have featured several times on Shedworking.
