Metropolis magazine's Next Generation design competition is challenging designers to create a Zero Environmental Footprint for a GSA building for 2011. Designers are asked to focus on one area that needs fixing from products, interiors, buildings, landscape, communication systems—and develop an idea or a system of fixes.
Metropolis aims to generate and reward ideas of imaginative young designers who are with firms or working independently, as well as students. It recognizes projects that embody the core values of good design and incorporate systems thinking, sustainability, accessibility, materials exploration, historic relevance, and technology. Now over a decade old, the competition promotes environmental activism, social involvement, and entrepreneurship in young designers.
Designer proposals include building projects, urban planning and community building schemes, responsive interior environments, population pressure issues, new materials, ergonomics, product design, social and housing solutions, environmental management, water purity, and waste disposal in crisis situations.
The prize of $10,000 and magazine publicity help designers to implement and produce their ideas.
