$1000: Seastead 3-D Design Contest - UPDATE

Hi Blenders!

This is an update to The Seasteading Institute 3-D design contest which really It is a chance for you to design something quite unusual and meaningful.

To sum up: The Seasteading Institute (TSI) is at the moment looking for talented designers to construct a seastead using 3-D modeling software. A seastead is a floating platform that allows people to permanently settle the ocean as they do land. Professional naval engineers have already designed a bare platform. What you build on the platform is up to you. It may be a hospital, a casino, a residential community, a cricket stadium, or something entirely different. Be creative!

Your architectural design might have significant impact on Seasteading and society :) http://bldgblog.blogspot.com/2008/05/deep-water-city-states.html.

Winning designs will be rewarded with cash prizes up to $1000, be featured on the TSI website, in our press materials (we’ve already been featured in Wired and on Slashdot), and on our merchandise. The deadline is May 1st, 2009.

The deadline for The Seasteading Institute 3-D design Contest is 1st of May.

For a detailed list of prizes and official rules, please see: http://seasteading.org/interact/design-contest

Note: A blender version of the base model is now available! 

Also the FAQ section on the homepage is updated!

Good luck!
