These results are only the beginning, as the H C Museum plans for a more restricted design competition for the House of Fairytales.</p></em><br /><br /><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/j9/j9iwklb4o5rsw0n6.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/3j/3jclsm5peiajmrbn.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/4j/4j4qqpkxfazfxrlq.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/5o/5olgcc7jlozzlid8.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/4i/4iupjicxleg5z92k.jpg"><br><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/vo/vo6lgmm1qr45rkas.jpg"></p><p>Get more details on <a href="http://www.bustler.net/index.php/article/hortus_conclusus_andersen_-_1st-prize_for_h_c_andersen_house_of_fairytales/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bustler</a>.</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/92398528/m-art-2013-winners-update-the-traditional-arts-crafts-marketplace M.ART 2013 winners update the traditional arts+crafts marketplace Justine Testado 2014-01-29T19:57:00-05:00 >2014-02-03T18:17:31-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/uf/ufwvjbvvivgj9hwe.jpg" width="514" height="525" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>The Opengap M.ART 2013 Ideas Competition had participants mix traditional elements of the commercial arts-and-crafts market with a contemporary twist.

Since its first run in 2008, SUPRASTUDIO has tripled in size and offerings, now composed of 41 students working in studios led by Gehry Partners/Gehry Technologies, Greg Lynn, and Thom Mayne/The Now Institute.</p> <p> A far cry from the hilly green labyrinth of UCLA&rsquo;s Westwood campus, the IDEAS hangar formerly belonged to famed aviation magnate Howard Hughes, and now plays neighbor to Los Angeles&rsquo; YouTube Space (and nearby Google in Venice).
