The Open Architecture Network  is off to a blazing start, and today, in coordination with tech company AMD , Architecture for Humanity  announced their $250,000 OAN competition  to design a sustainable technology facility and community center for the developing world. The competition  officially launches later this year, and the selected design will be available through the Open Architecture Network  for implementation and adaptation. The initial design should be site-specific and “incorporate a centralized building equipped with internet connectivity solutions designed to enable an entire community to access the transformative power of the Internet.” The competition  supports AMD’s 50×15 Initiative , whose goal is to connect 50 percent of the world’s population to the Internet by 2015. To participate, you MUST be a member of the Open Architecture Network .
