Eligibility Any designer or architect in practice for 10 years or less, as well as design students


For 2011 we are asking for a Zero Environmental Footprint for a GSA building. We challenge you to think about how we work, what we use, how we get where we need to go, hidden costs to our pocketbooks and the environment, across the whole design spectrum. Focus on one area that needs fixing—products, interiors, buildings, landscape, communication systems, or anything else you can imagine—and develop your idea fully, or develop a whole system of fixes.
