After a flurry of activity last week, the Reburbia winners have been announced! Our own Allan Chochinov was one of the judges, but we haven't heard a peep out of him until now. Still, we weren't so off target with our finalists preview post last week—though we didn't know it, we featured both the grand prize winner and the people's choice award.
Anyway, all talk of prescience aside, here's the breakdown:
Grand Prize: Frog's Dream: McMansions Turned into Biofilter Water Treatment Plants by Calvin Chiu
Second Place: Entrepreneurbia: Rezoning Suburbia for Self-Sustaining Life by Urban Nature, F&S Design Studio and Silverlion Design
Third Place: Big Box Architecture: A Productive Suburb by Forrest Fulton
People's Choice: Urban Sprawl Repair Kit: Repairing the Urban Fabric by Galina Tahchieva.
Congrats to the winners for their thoughtful re-imagining of America's suburbs, to be featured in the December 2009/January 2010 issue of Dwell magazine. For now, you can read more about all the notable entries, finalists and winners here.
