Modern Atlanta (MA) is pleased to announce the second annual MA Prize competition. The 2012 MA Prize entries will be carefully selected by a prestigious international jury of practicing designers and scholars and will be displayed at this year’s MA12 “Design in Human Week” in Atlanta.
This year the prize calls for designers to submit projects that critically consider today’s notions of sustainability as applied to the modern dwelling. This award aims to highlight projects of all scales, that showcase a critical investigation into sustainable design practices in the home as well as projects that thoughtfully deal with the unique geographical, social, political or cultural conditions.
All entries will be reviewed by an international jury panel and winners will be announced in May. The first prize winner will be awarded $1000 USD and the second prize winner $500 USD. In addition to the prize winners twelve honorable mentions will be selected. Prize winning entries and honorable mentions will be exhibited during the Design is Human Week 2012 event to be held from 1st to 10th June 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia.
