Have you ever wished you could try your hand at ecological design solutions for Burlington? Here is your chance to show us how it is done!
Introducing University of Vermont’s first student-designed competition: LivingPlace. This Ecological Design Competition is sponsored by the new UVM Ecological Design Collaboratory and supported by a grant from the Thoreau Foundation. The LivingPlace Competition serves as a springboard for the launch of the UVM Ecological Design Collaboratory.
This competition encourages the linkage of student-initiated projects and the sustainability needs of the Burlington community through place-based ecological design.
Competitors are tasked with creating a holistic design submission that integrates storm-water management, sustainable food production, and community engagement. Three sites [Burlington Waterfront, Burlington High School, and University of Vermont] have been selected. This is an opportunity for designs that include student-community collaboration. Here is your chance to put your ideas and visions on paper to share.
Please join us on February 21 for the gallery showcase of the submitted designs and the announcement of our winners. The competition is open to both local and non-local participants. The judges for this contest include members of the Burlington arts community and University professors.
