Design Competition

America needs a “hometown” that is a model of a sustainable future. Help us create one in Montpelier VT. A $10,000 prize is to be awarded for the best design for that hometown.

The competition focuses on re-imagining a small city whose downtown is largely occupied by parking lots. Such an unsustainable situation requires the best in design and imagination to transform these parking craters into a dense, livable, and fun small urban center which can live on locally produced energy and radically redesigned transportation while providing a place that can house all ages and abilities.
