Architecture Competition Held In…Minecraft?

Architecture / Design

All your blueprint are belong to us.

In college the truism was that most kids in the architecture program would end up in video game development, since all that rendering software was sort of the same. So I guess this was the only logical conclusion to architecture competitions.

From PSFK:
Swedish architecture firm Equator, in partnership with Mojang –  the creators of Minecraft, invited players of the popular video game to submit their ideas for an architecture competition that would be held within the game itself.

The Minecraft design competition, which runs until July 31st, is in line with a 2023 housing project by HSB Stockholm in Kungsbroplan. The housing company is holding an architectural competition for the project and wants to see ideas related to the future of housing.
