Over the course of the summer, Design It: Shelter Competition received submissions from people in 68 countries for a total of nearly 600 entries that met competition requirements. On the occasion of the Guggenheim Museum's 50th Anniversary, we are pleased to announce the two winning entries: David Mares's CBS – Cork Block Shelter, which won the People's Prize after receiving 64,875 votes out of more than 100,000 votes submitted online by voters around the world; and David Eltang's SeaShelter, which was selected by a jury of architecture and design experts for the Juried Prize. Prizes include airfare and two nights accommodation for two in New York City, behind-the-scenes tours of the Guggenheim Museum and Google offices, and Google SketchUp Pro licenses. Congratulations to both winners!
