Airbnb is launching $1 million fund as they search the globe for the wildest livable spaces on the planet for guests to enjoy.
Unique Airbnb Fund
Airbnb is an online marketplace that provides a selection of vacation rentals all around the world to travelers. Over the last year, searches for unexpected and unique spaces, like tiny houses and windmills, have increased over 70%. Some of the most booked listings on Airbnb’s website include unusual spaces such as domes, RVs and treehouses. Airbnb has taken this opportunity to search for the world’s wildest home ideas.
Beginning March 10, 2020, design enthusiasts across the world have a chance to submit their crazy and unconventional proposals at Airbnb.com/uniquefund. Each submission will be scored against criteria based on 25% creativity, 25% feasibility, 25% sustainability and 25% social good. The deadline for submission is April 15, 2020.
Selecting the Winners
The top 10 winners will be selected by a panel of judges. These judges include Emmy, Tony, and GRAMMY Award-winning actor Billy Porter, Airbnb Superhost Kristie Wolfe, of the famed Big Idaho Potato Hotel, and global and cutting-edge architecture firm MVRDV. The judges will be looking for unusual shapes, unexpected locations, immersive concepts, and spaces with a story.
The sole purpose of the Unique Fund is to enable each winner to carry out their plans of creating a unique space in their home or on their property for guests to experience and book on Airbnb. Winners will be given three phases with approximately $33,333 upon each individual completion, with a total payment of $100,000.
