Service for searching and renting housing Airbnb announced a competition for house designs – “the most unusual that you can think of.”
Residents of more than two dozen countries, including Russia, can participate in the competition, according to the rules of the competition. Projects must be creative, actionable, sustainable and socially beneficial.
The jury will select ten projects. The winners of the competition will receive $ 100,000 for construction. Projects must be completed from June to December 2020.
The organizer accepts applications for the competition until April 15, 2020, and the names of the winners will be announced on May 15.
The Unique Airbnb Fund
Airbnb is looking for the world’s most daring home ideas and has set up a $ 1 million fund to bring them to life. The Unique Airbnb Fund is the company’s first-ever million dollar program to find and fund the most unconventional and unusual places to live on the planet.
The ten recipients of the unique Airbnb Foundation will be selected by a panel of design and style innovators, including Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Billy Porter, Airbnb Superhost Christie Wolfe of the iconic Big Idaho Potato Hotel, and cutting edge architecture firm MVRDV.
Starting today, designers can submit their proposals at airbnb.com/uniquefund. All submissions will be judged against criteria based on creativity, appropriateness, sustainability and social good.
Inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of the company’s three co-founders, Unique Airbnb is dedicated to empowering anyone with an unusual home idea to design and make a home, and share it with travelers around the world.
