Pangea Organics


In the summer of 2005, we took the first step in laying the foundation for the Pangea Institute and hosted The Pangea Institute Architectural Design Contest. The concept behind the contest was to bring together the greater community in an effort to embody the mission of the Institute. We figured the best way to do this was to create a forum for thoughts and ideas surrounding the physical design of the Institute. After all, the Institute itself will serve as a living, breathing model of the fundamental principals taught on the premises. And since design is critical to the Institute’s functionality as a successful model of sustainability and sustainable design, we thought we’d start there. Under the leadership of Civil Engineer Jon Previtali, who generously dedicated his time, talent and passion for sustainable design, we cast our net wide, inviting the national public (architects, designers, visionaries, artists, students and amateurs alike) to design a mixed-use community plan that will house the Pangea Institute, the Pangea Organics manufacturing facility and community housing. To view a PDF of the full contest proposal, click here. Next we formed a design award jury, inviting members of the local community to volunteer their time and expertise in the field of sustainable architecture and design. Delighted with the concept behind the competition, jurors included: Mark Broyles, Architect/Urban Planner; Julee Herdt, Professor of Architecture, University of Colorado; Jeff Sheppard, Architect; and John Zhai, Assistant Professor, Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering, University of Colorado. The contest attracted participants from all over the country. We received a total of eight qualified submissions from the following seven states: Belmont, CA; Denver, CO; Golden, CO; Houston, TX; Jackson, WY; Muncie, IN; Orlando, FL; and Rochester, MN. Jurors gathered to rate submissions based on the following elements as outlined in the contest proposal: Art; Economics & Ecology; Energy; Nature; Freedom, Privacy & Fairness; Health; Education; Water; Transportation; Style; Construction; Growth; Spaces & Capacity. For a PDF of the official Score Card, click here. First place was awarded to Mark Gerwing of Alchemy Architecture and his team of architects based in Golden, CO. Second place went to Adam Ferrari from Rochester, MN. Third place was awarded to Fred Andreas from UNiT design studio in Denver, CO. Honorable mentions were awarded to the following contestants: John and Reyna Herrera and Yonny Rios (Houston, TX); Joshua Doolitte (Jackson, WY); and Joseph Yates (Orlando, FL).
