Reburbia, A Suburban Design Competition

Reburbia, A Suburban Design Competition

With the current housing crisis, the sub-prime mortgage meltdown, increasing carbon emissions and rising energy costs, the future of suburbia looks bleak. It is obvious that a change in the American landscape is necessary, which is why Inhabitat has teamed up with Dwell Magazine to launch the REBURBIA design contest.

We know our readers are a smart and innovative bunch, and this is why we are turning to YOU to come up with YOUR vision for a brighter, more sustainable future for the American suburban landscape. Show us how you would re-invent the suburbs. What would a McMansion become if it weren’t a single-family dwelling? How could a vacant big box store be retrofitted for agriculture?

Winners will be showcased in Dwell Magazine, &, and will receive $1000 cash prize. For more information on submission, click here.
