Dwell and Pacific Standard Time LEGO Modern Home Design Competition

Dwell and Pacific Standard Time challenges you to construct a model of an original home inspired by iconic California mid-century modern architecture using LEGO bricks. Enter through March 29th via the Dwell website (up to 4 photos). Starting March 31st entries will be posted for voting and the 5 finalists will be on display at this year’s Dwell on Design from June 22-24. A panel of judges will choose the grand prize winner live from the show floor.

Prize: The grand prize winner selected by Judges will receive a cash prize of $250.00, one (1) “Ice Cube” poster, and a selection of LEGO Architecture building sets including: LEGO Architecture Solomon R. Guggenheim® Museum, LEGO Architecture Fallingwater®, LEGO Architecture White House, LEGO Architecture Rockefeller Center, LEGO Architecture Farnsworth House, and LEGO Architecture Robie House. The five (5) Finalists will each receive a VIP ticket to Dwell on Design and two (2) LEGO Architecture building sets: LEGO Architecture Empire State Building and LEGO Architecture Burj Khalifa.

So the price money isn’t great, but you get the bragging rights.  From what I read of the rules, no mention of the scale of building so micro or true to proportions models are acceptable:

Design Competition Challenge: Create an original design of a home in the California mid-century modern style and construct a model of it using LEGO bricks and elements. Models using anything other than LEGO bricks and elements for the main structure will be disqualified. Any non-LEGO brand material must only be used for the sake of structural integrity (if necessary) such as glue, adhesive, steel, etc.

Good luck if you are participating!
