The Competition:

The Global Design Competition of Seattle, WA USA calls for entries of integrated function, high efficiency, low carbon restaurant designs. Our goal is to create a shareware reference resource of design solutions that also functions as a services directory for participating design teams.

The design objective is a low carbon restaurant, by any means possible, including but not limited to reduction in the need for electricity, food menu and ingredient choices, localized power generation and waste energy capture and reuse.


The Global Design Competition is open to individuals and organizations world-wide.

Who We Are:

Our jury panel is comprised of professionals, educators and innovators in the fields of engineering, architecture, life-cycle analysis, vertical farming, green building, restaurant operations and business modeling. In combination, they will be able to assess the feasibility and appropriateness of designs in the contexts of technical probability of appliance and building systems, marketability of product, output schedule, and staff operations.

Deadline for Entries:

The submission process for entries for The Global Design Competition is now OPEN.

Entries must be received at the competition office by March 15th, 2011.
