The 2008 Next Generation® Design Competition focuses on WATER. In a world of killer floods and rising tides, potable water is a finite resource.
Water is everywhere—in nature, industry, home, our bodies, products, interiors, buildings, landscapes, systems (just to name a few).
With up to one third of the global population living without reliable access to clean water, we need better design solutions that account for potable water, gray water, black water—its uses, re-uses, controls, management, efficiency, and conservation.
We call on your innovative design solutions at all scales and sizes—products, interiors, buildings, landscapes, communication systems, or anything else you’ve dreamed up—for handling this most precious and most threatened natural resource. The time for new thinking on water is now.
WHAT’S YOUR SOLUTION?
The Next Generation® competition was created in 2003 to promote activism, social involvement, and entrepreneurship in young designers.
The winner will be featured in the May 2008 issue of Metropolis and on metropolismag.com. The runners up will also be announced in the May 2008 issue, and stories about select projects will be featured in the Next Generation section of Metropolis magazine thereafter and posted on the Web site.
