guggenheim

Forget luxurious houses. Sometimes all you need is a shelter. In honor of two Frank Lloyd Wright-related exhibitions, the Guggenheim is teaming up with Google to solicit shelter designs from amateurs and professionals around the world. These are basic structures that look awesome but only provide the necessities of life. All you need is Google SketchUp and Google Earth to sketch the design in 3D and place it somewhere on the globe. Mums the word on the spoils for winning, but there will be both a People’s Prize, voted on by the public between September 7 and October 10, and a special Juried Prize awarded on October 21. Details on how to enter can be found at the Guggenheim’s Web site. [Guggenheim via New York Times, Image]
