Without Pockets is an Australian t-shirt design competition run by a guy named Simon (who is helped out by a couple of his mates.)

It occurred to Simon a while back that people are getting pickier and pickier about the stuff they buy. Customisation is the name of the game and people love it when they can purchase something that has a personal element - this is never more true than with clothing.

As well as that, Simon loves a great tee. He also noticed how many people were making really awesome tees of their own... customised to the max. As these realisations collided, Without Pockets was conceived.

Lingkungan kota semakin lama semakin tidak nyaman ditinggali. Padatnya populasi memaksa orang tinggal di lahan yang sempit. Akibatnya, kualitas hidup yang semestinya diperoleh, tidak bisa didapat. Ruang gerak terbatas, udara pengap, dan kebisingan menjadi kondisi yang seolah harus diterima penduduk kota.

Dengan latar belakang itu, Tabloid RUMAH mengadakan sayembara desain rumah hemat energi. Dari sini, dapat digali ide-ide kreatif dalam mengolah desain tempat tinggal yang memperhatikan konteks lingkungan.

Sayembara ini juga diselenggarkan dalam rangka kampanye Sahabat Lingkungan yang digaungkan Tabloid RUMAH tahun ini. Diharapkan, dengan sayembara ini kepedulian masyarakat terhadap akan lingkungan akan meningkat

Karya-karya desain yang dihasilkan nanti diharapkan dapat menjadi inspirasi bagi masyarakat dalam membangun rumah tinggal yang hemat energi dan ramah lingkungan.


· Peserta adalah mahasiswa S1 jurusan Arsitektur yang masih terdaftar sebagai mahasiswa semester genap 2006-2007, secara perorangan.
· Gagasan desain adalah karya asli peserta dan belum pernah dipublikasikan.
· Karya yang masuk tidak akan dikembalikan dan Tabloid RUMAH berhak melakukan publikasi atas karya tersebut untuk keperluan sayembara.
· Panitia tidak melayani pertanyaan dan surat menyurat di luar penyelenggaraan sayembara.
