d3 Natural Systems 2015 – Architecture Competition

Registration for 2015 has recently been opened for d3 Natural Systems, an annual architecture competition for alternative, ecologically-performative architectonic strategies and designs.

D3, a New York-based design stewardship organization, recognizes exemplary ideas that redefine architecture as an ecological project through the implementation of advanced technologies, materials, and social interventions that engage adaptability, globalization, and emergence.

The total prize money fund of the 2015 d3 Natural Systems competition is $1,750, of which $1,000 are reserved for the 1st place winning entry.

Architects, designers, engineers, and students are invited to explore the potential of analyzing, documenting, and deploying nature-based influences in architecture, urbanism, interiors, and designed objects.

Submissions by interdisciplinary design teams are encouraged.

Established in 2009, the annual d3 Natural Systems competition is an emerging voice in alternative architecture and one of the most notable awards in speculative, performance-based design.
