SOLARKIOSK selected as a Semifinalist for the Buckminster Fuller Challenge

We are delighted, that GRAFT’s project SOLARKIOSK has been selected as a Semifinalist for the Buckminster Fuller Challenge.

SOLARKIOSK, along with sixteen other Semifinalists has been selected out of 460 entries over a period of four months by members of the Challenge Review Committee, which includes more than a dozen long-standing reviewers as well as external advisors and experts.

The Buckminster Fuller Challenge program has been highlighting and celebrating exceptional examples of “whole systems” design across many sectors for the past 10 years. Launched in 2007, the program has been widely regarded as “socially-responsible design’s highest award”.

The 2017 Fuller Challenge Semifinalists are examples of innovative, multi-pronged approaches to addressing critical problems in agriculture, architecture, climate change, community, planning, education, ecology, economic, development, energy, human health, materials, sanitation or environmental and social justice.
