A prize of £40 000 is on offer for the second annual Design Sense award for sustainable industrial design and architecture, which is being hosted at the Design Museum on 16 November.
The international competition is being sponsored by metals group Corus. Products ranging from cars to building designs and interiors will be judged against each other by their impact on society and the environment.
The judges will include creatives such as Professor Janice Kirkpatrick from Graven Images, Ideo’s Bill Moggridge, Marco Goldschmied from the Royal Institute of British Architects and Lucy Musgrave from The Architecture Foundation.
Corus brand director Geoff Hooker says: “Architects and designers have a profoundly important role to play in shaping our society. Design Sense provides the stimulus for industry to consider radical design solutions that protect the environment.”
The deadline for submissions is 28 July and entry forms can be found at www.designmuseum.org/designsense. An exhibition of all shortlisted entries will be held at the museum from 17 November to 21 January 2001.
