Are you tired of the lack of trees in your city, or is it difficult to find a place to sit back and relax against the urban bustle? If you have an idea on how to transform drab city spaces into dream havens, then enter them today in the DesignByMany Challenge. This challenge is looking for a functional, feasible and elegant protective canopy that can be used in an urban pedestrian setting. Designers are free to choose a location, but their solutions should clearly explain the chosen location and how the design responds to its climate and orientation. The winner of the challenge will take home an HP Designjet 111 Printer. All submissions are due by Sunday, March 27 and then voting will be open for the DesignByMany community until April 3.
