urbanSHED International Design Competition
NYC is sponsoring a design competition focused on re-inventing the construction sheds that cover sidewalks all over New York. The competition brief claims that over a million linear feet of the shed structures exist at any given time around the city. I’m really looking forward to the entrants simply because this is one design problem that does not strike me as novel. I keep thinking of simple pretty, light, airy structures that would probably be too expensive to actually be of use.
