Calling all students, architects, designers, artists, engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs!
The Buckminster Fuller Institute is looking for those who are committed to playing a transformative role in addressing the biggest issues in the world today and has announced a Call for Proposals for the 2013 Buckminster Fuller Challenge. This challenge is an annual global design competition known as “Socially-Responsible Design’s Highest Award.” The winner will be awarded a $100,000 cash prize to support the development and implementation of a solution that has significant potential to solve one of humanity’s most pressing problems.
The Buckminster Fuller Challenge is the world’s only large scale prize that awards creative and holistic approaches to crises in the world today. The internationally renowned jury will look for entries that address the “big picture” and focus on a well-defined need of critical importance. Winning entries from the past five years have covered various pressing issues ranging from urban mobility to coastal restoration.
