Launch is seeking architectural design submissions for the upcoming Launch Design + Music Festival held on July 23rd, 2011 at the Greens Hotel.

Theme

“What does the Sacramento vernacular look like?”

Sketch your visions of what local Sacramento design style(s) should/could look like. We want to to see what Sacramento’s style could be and discover what’s missing in the architectural landscape. Draw your idea of the ideal Sacramento building/dwelling/home or other architectural concept in a style that is uniquely tied to local climate, landscape and resources.

Submissions can be conceptual, residential or commercial in nature of any scale or material and location. Submissions will be evaluated for presentation purposes only by the Launch team and not judged on style, content or ability. Anyone is eligible for submission, no licensure or architectural experience required.
