Now, we’ve all seen the winning entries but I was intending on finding some examples of the entries that did not make the judges’ grade.  At least it would be a display of what calibre the panel had to sift through to get these gems.  Fortunately, a few prominent website have done so already, saving me a post I guess.  Anyway, check out some quite interesting proposals at Bustler, and Europan.  As for me, to avoid seeming too lazy here are a selection of some of my favourites:

Desert Rose Oasis by TPD&A – Witkowski, Belgium.

This entry derives its form from the mineral crystals of the same name, which are created from the desert sand.  A nice analogy to comment on how Dubai has grown as a city from the desert.

About.

Twenty-something aspiring architect at Bath University, England, with a worrying fondness for polaroids and analogue photography. Other interests include typography, screen-printing, interior and packaging design, and anything that has been made with some thought and love.

From time to time I use either my SX-70 polaroid, OM20 35mm, Agfa Isolette medium format, or Sony A350. You can find photos on my Flickr.

Here is a collection of interesting and wonderful things people have created that I have happened to be fortunate to stumble across, and sometimes some of my own. I have not created all of the content on this site and credit is made to the source where it is due and if it is available.

Enjoy.
