Presented by Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., MAXON Computer, DOSCH DESIGN, Arroway Textures® and AMD FireProTM graphics, “Your World, Reimagined: A Global Design Competition” asks professional and student designers to tackle an old, dilapidated, or run-down locale and redesign it for a new, improved use. Entries can range in focus from adaptive reuse to landscape reclamation or object redesign.
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges from around the world, including designer and sculptor Nicholas Dunand; digital artist Shinya Fujimura from 3D-KOBO; architect François Lévy; lighting and production designer Tyler Littman of Sholight, LLC; architectural visualizer Alejandro Nogueira from DECC 3D Art; architect Peter Petz from German-Architects.com; digital animator Marc Potocnik from renderbaron; architectural visualizer Erik Recke from Datenland; assistant professor Katherine Bambrick Ambroziak from the College of Architecture and Design at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; and project architects Maxime Czvek, Thomas Rigby and Tom Boogaerts from BOGDAN & VAN BROECK ARCHITECTS.
In addition to an overall award for Best Overall Design Concept, winners will be selected in the following categories: Best Computer Rendering, Best Animation, Best 3D Modeling, and Best 2D Plan. Prize packages include Visa gift cards and software bundles.
Submissions will be accepted until August 16, 2013. Entries can range from a conceptual design to a completed project with full design development and may consist of up to two design boards or one design board and a movie file that demonstrates their design’s conceptual imagery. Each submission should explain what site existed prior to the new, reimagined design. All submissions must use Vectorworks or CINEMA 4D software, and a free, 30-day trial of Vectorworks software or a free, 42-day trial of CINEMA 4D is available for download.
