We are delighted to share the exciting news of the day: SOLARKIOSK has been selected as a Semifinalist of the Buckminster Fuller Challenge.

SOLARKIOSK, along with the other sixteen Semifinalists, has undergone rigorous evaluation for adherence to the Fuller Challenge criteria among more than 460 entries over a period of 4 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” (first recognized by Metropolis Magazine in 2010).

The 2017 Fuller Challenge Semifinalists are exemplars 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, environmental and social justice, and other domains.
