Homestyler Design Award (HSDA) is the annual design contest of Homestyler that opens to all designers and design enthusiasts worldwide. Last year, we addressed a rethinking of what designers could do to adapt to these changes after the epidemic in HSDA 2020. You can have a review of the great winning works of last year: www.homestyler.com/blog/1131
The whole world seems to be talking about "Metaverse" in 2021. So when metaverse and design collide, what will be the style? What would it be like if you can create a world centered by yourself?
As the second year of our annual design contest, HSDA 2021 would like to invite you to free your imagination and build your own metaverse! Forget about the budget, your job, your real-life responsibilities, or even your age, show us how you would picture your own world. You can build your dream home as a small but cozy room, or a large house with a swimming pool. You can also design a classroom that you wish to study in, your favorite restaurant to have brunch, or other public places where you communicate with other visitors of your metaverse~
The HSDA 2021 contest has two subcategories – Residential and Commercial, and we are eagerly calling for entries of creative works. Come and submit your innovative design!
