Design a vertical cemetery for Tokyo to win $5000:
Finding a suitable place to rest the dead in land-scarce Tokyo is becoming more difficult than ever. To help Japan solve its challenging problem, arch out loud has launched the Tokyo Vertical Cemetery competition . The ideas contest seeks proposals for a vertical cemetery in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo that explores the relationship between life and death within the city. The designs should not just propose efficient space-saving solutions, but should also be culturally sensitive. A total cash prize pool of $8,000 will be distributed to the overall winner as well as to the three runner-ups. The regular registration deadline is September 23, 2016 and the deadline for submissions is September 24, 2016.
