    ORIGINAL POST
    trays is holding its first competition.

    We invite you to SKETCH the ideal voting booth on Election Day, either on the boards that will be set up throughout Gund Hall (for those in Boston), or by submitting one 8.5"x11" sheet digitally to trays.gsd@gmail.com There are no restrictions in terms of materiality or scale - they can be pure concept. Everyone in invited to submit sketches.

    A distinguished (yet to be announced) panel of faculty and students will select the best entries. We will attempt to construct the winning entry, either at the GSD or at a location to be determined. (Harvard Square? Boston City Hall?) TRAYS will also award the best non-buildable sketch/idea with a cash prize. The top ten entries will be featured on the journal website.

    DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 4TH by 8PM EST (poll closing time in the east)

    Email trays.gsd@gmail.com with questions.
