Dwell Gets In Trouble With the Competition Police

0425dwellcontest.jpg

By way of Archinect, we learned of the hot water Dwell is in for their Infinity Design Challenge: San Francisco. The contest involves designers submitting ideas for the interiors of three floors of the Infinity building. And those who win, well, they get to put their designs into practice, getting budgets of $75,000. But, as the rules spell out extremely clearly, they definitely don’t get a piece of any of that money — they just get to do more work after the work they put into their entry. This isn’t sitting so well with people. Just browse through the comments section of The Bustler or in Archinect’s own new forum, “Dwell Competition to Exploit Young Designers for Free Work.” Just by that name, you get an idea of the reaction.
