I've been thinking about the competition for shelter designs, sponsored by the Guggenheim and Google. I've come up with a cool idea, but have no time to actually sit and DO it. It's an idea for shelters on the National Mall in Washington, DC (where I live).
If you've seen the Mall recently, the once lush green square of grass have lots of sad-looking brown patches. Some new shelters could beautify the area, and provide relief from the DC heat for our many tourists!
The competition deadline is August 23 - plenty of time!
So if you have some time over the summer, or have a team that could work on it, email me and I'll tell you what I have in mind. For any summer-school teachers out there: this would be a really fun class project.
Anyone can design anything in 3D! www.3dvinci.net
