D3, a New York-based design stewardship organization and publisher, has recently opened registrations for Natural Systems 2014, one of its annual architectural design competitions.
The Competition invites architects, designers, engineers, and students to collectively explore the potential of analyzing, documenting, and deploying nature-based influences in architecture, urbanism, interiors, and designed objects.
The First prize for 2014 is $1250 in cash; Second and Third place prizes and several Special Mentions will also be announced.
Designers are free to approach their creative process in a scale-appropriate manner–from large-scale master planning endeavors, to individual building concepts, to notions of interior detail. Accordingly, there are no restrictions on site, scale, program, or building typology, proposals should carefully address their selected context.
Established in 2009, the annual d3 Natural Systems competition has grown to become a leading voice in sustainable architecture.
