d3 Natural Systems Competition winners announced

d3 is pleased to announce the winners of the Natural Systems international architectural design competition for 2010. The program, developed by co-directors Gregory Marinic and Mary-Jo Schlachter, invites architects, designers, engineers, and students to collectively explore the potential of analyzing, documenting, and deploying nature-based influences in architecture, interiors, and designed objects.

The competition calls for innovative proposals that advance sustainable thought and performance through the study of intrinsic environmental geometries, behaviors, and flows. By identifying, examining, and applying their structural order on form and function- -bottom-up, performance-based solutions for limitless building typologies, functional programs, and material conditions may be realized.

The competition awarded four prizes and eight special mentions. You can see the four prizes after the break. For complete list of special mentions, go to the competition’s official website.
