Reburbia finalists

The top 20 finalists have now been announced for the Reburbia Design Competition and you can vote for what you think is the best idea. Reburbia is the creation of  Dwell Magazine and Inhabitat.com who wanted entrants to come up with  a design dedicated to re-envisioning the suburbs. My personal favourite is this entry, “which proposes to transform the vacant McMansions, at the periphery of cities, into eco-water treatment machines, commercially known as Living Machines, in which a micro-ecosystem of plants, algae, bacteria, fish and clams are present to purify the water.” Bye, bye Delfin.

Voting ends on the 17 August 2009.
