This week Metropolis announces the 2007 Next Generation® prize. For the first time since the prize began four years ago it will have a theme, Energy: its uses, reduction, consumption, efficiencies, and alternatives. The competition recognizes design innovation on all scales and is open to young designers in practice 10 years or less, regardless of discipline or profession.
The winner will receive $10,000 seed money and will be featured in Metropolis magazine. I'm fortunate to join this year's judges which also include Jeff Barber, Gensler; Fred Dust, Ideo; Suzan Globus, Globus Design Associates; and Susan Szenasy, Metropolis. Here are the rules. Please enter!
