Introducing The University of Vermont’s first student-designed competition: LivingPlace. This ecological design competition is sponsored by the University of Vermont Ecological Design Collaboratory and supported by a grant from the Thoreau Foundation and Rubenstein School for the Environment and Natural Resources. The LivingPlace Competition serves as a springboard for the new Ecological Design Collaboratory.
Competitors are tasked with creating a holistic design submission that integrates stormwater management, sustainable food production, and community engagement. Three sites (Burlington Waterfront, Burlington High School, and University of Vermont) have been selected. This is an opportunity for designs that include student-community collaboration. Here is your chance to put your ideas and visions on paper.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three designs and there is the potential for one of the winning designs to be prototyped in the UHS GreenHouse courtyard next summer.
Registration Deadline: Tuesday, February 11, 2014.
Submission Deadline: Tuesday, February 11, 2014.
