Construct a Pagoda in a dimension. Here is your chance to show how imaginative, technical and/or crazy you are!
A temple or sacred building, usually a tower and typically having upward-curving roofs over the individual stories. Pagodas come in many different sizes, as some may be small and others may be large. Pagodas traditionally have an odd number of levels, a notable exception being the eighteenth-century pagoda designed by Sir William Chambers at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London. The pagodas in Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are very different from Chinese and Japanese pagodas. Pagodas in those countries are derived from Dravidian architecture.
This contest is to encourage the design of a structure that would be classified as a Pagoda, but is not limited to any particular style.
This contest begins Sunday, April 8th, 2018 and ends at 1200 (Noon) PDT on Sunday, July 8th, 2018, with the winners announced by Saturday, July 14th, 2018.
Entries posted after the closing time and date will not be accepted.
PRIZES (ONE PER CATEGORY!):
1st Place Prize: 3 REX
