We announce ONE Prize 2012: BLIGHT TO MIGHT

The 2012 ONE Prize competition is calling on individuals of all backgrounds to activate the socially, economically, and ecologically regenerative possibilities of design. Situated in the context of a struggling U.S. economy and the tension of stagnant unemployment, ONE Prize 2012 is predicated on the idea that design can be a vehicle for positive social change, collaborative action, and economic growth.

Can we rework the skeletons of 20th century manufacturing for 21st century innovation?
Can former plants in Detroit become greenhouses, schools, theaters?
Can mill towns be revamped as digital fabrication hubs?
Can vacant parking lots become farms or parks?
Can abandoned strip malls be reinvented?
Can we reboot the American economy?
