After reviewing close to 200 student submissions from around the globe, Fentress Architects is excited to announce the winning entries for the 2012 Fentress Global Challenge: Workplace of the Future. The international competition was created to give the global design community an opportunity to showcase their talents. World renowned jury members narrowed the submissions to 11 finalists, and then to the top three. Honorable Mention was also selected by the jury, and a Peoples Choice award was bestowed to the entry that collected the most votes from the public.
The objective of this years competition was to encourage young architectural talent to explore scenarios for the future of the workplace, focusing in particular on the architectural potential of distributed intelligence and of universal, instantaneous communication. The five winning projects demonstrate in very different and revolutionary ways how information technology, intelligently applied, can be harnessed in very different cultures to transform both urban and rural environments.
Evaluated for their creativity, sustainability, functionality, and benefit to the employee experience, the grand-prize winner will be awarded a prize valued at USD10,000, including USD3,000 cash, and a paid summer internship at Fentress Architects. Second place, third place, and the Peoples Choice winners will receive cash prizes of USD1,000; USD500; and USD300 respectively.
