The Open Architecture Network [2] is off to a blazing start, and today, in coordination with tech company AMD [3], Architecture for Humanity [4] announced their $250,000 OAN competition [5] to design a sustainable technology facility and community center for the developing world. The competition [5] officially launches later this year, and the selected design will be available through the Open Architecture Network [2] 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 [5] supports AMD’s 50×15 Initiative [6], 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 [2].
