d3 is pleased to announce the winners of the Natural Systems competition for 2011. The program, developed by co-directors Gregory Marinic and Ji Young Kim, promotes investigation of natural systems from microscopic to universal toward determining new architectonic strategies. The competition invites architects, designers, engineers, and students to collectively explore the potential for analyzing, documenting, and deploying nature-based, sustainable influences in urbanism, architecture, interiors, and designed objects.
The competition awarded three top prizes and seven special mentions, with the first prize captured by Entropic Industries/Jared Winchester from the United States. More information on the remaining winners after the break.
