Here at Inhabitat, we are well aware of the budding designers in New York City — after all the Big Apple in home to some the best design schools and design shows around. So what better way to show your design chops than by entering GreenHomeNYC’s Green Design Challenge? Inhabitat, along with our friends at Film Biz Recycling and Build it Green! NYC, is proud to sponsor the contest, which is searching for innovative design students to create sustainable furniture for GreenHomeNYC‘s public lounge space at this fall’s NEW New York block party. Submissions are due this Monday, August 22, so hit the jump to find out how to enter!This is a contest where you don’t want to hold back — we’re looking for big ideas that will make GreenHomeNYC’s space really stand out. To enter the contest, which you can do here, all you have to do is submit a sketch of your design on as an 11×17 PDF. Ten winners will be chosen on Monday, August 29, and they will make their designs a reality by working with an acclaimed panel of judges (including Inhabitat’s own founder Jill Fehrenbacher). The winners will have access to a wealth of free recycled and reclaimed materials donated by Film Biz Recycling and Build it Green! NYC.
All of the designs will outfit GreenHomeNYC’s NEW New York lounge space on October 1, creating an individual yet cohesive design. We’ll be here along the way to bring you all the details of the winners, their progress, and their eco-conscious designs. So what are you waiting for? Enter now!
