Support for Inhabitat’s ReBurbia Contest

10 08 2009

I just want to quickly talk about the design competition that Inhabitat is finishing up with right now. It’s called ReBurbia. Applicants were asked to submit a design that dealt with the issues surrounding suburbanism. These solutions could be anything, from rezoning, to total destruction. Out of it though, came some fantastic ideas. The top 20 finalists are here. If you want some eco-inspiration,  look through the finalists. They can also teach you quite a bit, and if nothing else, the designs are impressive and nice to look at. Some of my favorite designs:

1. Agricultural Medians on super-wide suburban streets

2. Convert Big Box Stores to Algae Bio-fuel Centres

3. The Urban Sprawl Repair Kit: Simple Infill
