Utah-based community project Summit has announced Mountain Architecture Prototype (MAP), an SPM Design Competition, "to select the design of a cabin prototype in an effort to push forward the conversation around what it means to build responsibly at 8,400 feet in the Wasatch [Mountain] Range.”

The competition seeks submissions for a structure of up to 2,500 square feet, which will be located on a 12 degree sloped site at Summit Powder Mountain. Sustainable designs are highly encouraged, particularly with the use of natural materials.

The winning concept will serve as a basis for the future of development at Powder Mountain, influencing the design of over 500 single family homes.

Three winners will additionally be invited to attend exclusive Summit events, with the first prize winner attending Summit at Sea, a Caribbean voyage, to present their design.

Registration is open until October 9, and submissions must be received by October 16. Winning designs, judged by Todd Saunders of Saunders Architecture, and Jenny Wu of Oyler Wu Collaborative, among others, will be announced October 20.
