SHAC Popup Challenge 2014
2014 SHAC Popup Challenge winners have been announced!
The winners Mizu Tea House pops-up in busy, downtown Auckland to provide an escape from demanding daily life, and Studio56 is a Dunedin break-out space that provides a unique learning and collaboration environment.
Highly commended, Flowing Tyres is an urban garden like pavilion.
The teams are now working to build their projects. Which team will finish first?
Over 50 submissions were received from all over New Zealand. Teams worked to design a playful pop up structure to help designers, builders and the public better understand the art and science of sustainable building. Teams responded to the challenge to show how we all can live well with less need for resources. SHAC promotes design as a collaborative, playful process that generates and evolves good ideas. Winners receive a SHAC trophy, a mark of industry accolades.
