ReSpace has joined forces with Habitat for Humanity of Wake County to launch a new design competition calling for inspired creatives to submit their designs for a compact and transportable structure that can be built with recycled materials. The mission of the competition is to explore how a small space can employ material reuse in construction, and how these two design elements can be successfully combined during conception. The final build will be used by Habitat for Humanity of Wake County ReStore to showcase the possibilities of designing and building with reuse in mind. Designers must register by June 15, 2012. A total of $3,000 in awards will be presented to multiple winners and the grand prize winner’s design will be constructed in a 48-hour build overseen by Habitat for Humanity!
