RAW recently participated in the 2010 Monsters of Design Competition put on by the Young Architects Forum of AIA Kansas City. According to the competition’s call for entries,
Projects of all types and scales (architecture, interiors, products, furniture, lighting, graphics and anything else) are welcome. Monsters of Design is an annual design awards competition for young architects and designers from the Kansas City metropolitan area. MoD exists to recognize the young designers whose work may not be recognized by other awards competitions. All types of design are considered equal in this competition. Ok, so maybe you didn’t design a whole building. Did you design a killer table for the conference room? Submit that. Did your client reject your brilliant idea? Submit it. Did you design a great album cover for your indie rock band? Submit it! Past winners have included a series of handbags, a trailer and unfinished skin studies of a large building. So we really mean it when we say that good design is good design, regardless of scale, budget and genre.
The projects were judged by a jury of Austin, Texas based architects who awarded two Honor Awards, four Merit Awards, and four Honorable Mention Awards. We submitted the whole building that we did design, Linkhaus, and received one of the Merit Awards. The night was a fun party full of well-designed projects, thank you to the YAF for hosting!
