'Next Big One' International Open Ideas Competition

“NEXT BIG ONE” – an international open ideas competition organized by Architecture for Humanity Vancouver Chapter – raises awareness on the high-magnitude earthquake and tsunami events that plague cities around the world.  The competition hopes to call upon the design community to offer fresh perspectives and innovative ideas in designing for disasters.

The challenge of this single-stage open-ideas competition is to propose an innovative design solution that can mitigate natural disasters while simultaneously providing community permanence.  The proposal must satisfy the following criteria:

1) Exemplify INNOVATION in disaster design,
2) Promote COMMUNITY RESILIENCY before and after disasters,
3) Meet the MULTI-HAZARD PARAMETERS for the worst-case scenario.

Entrants may register as teams of Design Professionals or Emerging Designers (Students).  Entry information, along with evaluation criteria and other details, can be found at http://www.nextbigone.org/. Registration closes at 11:59PM PST on September 7, 2014.  Submissions are due at 11:59PM PST on September 30, 2014. Winners will be announced on October 31, 2014.
