    Stewart HICKS, Allison NEWMEYER of DESIGN WITH COMPANY with Joseph ALTSHULER: Fin’s Labyrinth is an architecture and urban strategy that encourages you to play with your food.

It reintroduces the production of food into the daily lives of city dwellers, making a more concrete connection between what we put in our mouths and the environment required to generate it.

    Honorable Mention – $100

    Nikolay Hristov Ivanov: Fiber Garden is generating a micro cilmate (for the Scientific Research Center) on the base of urban farming through natural patterns. The main concept is emergence of three interrelated layers: skin – solar panels, skeleton – sprinkling/watering system and the green layer – plants. The generated pattern is based on the sun direction and allows the distributed solar panels to collect and transform sun energy. It also keeps a certain level of porosity to allow enough natural light to get indoors for the plants layer.
