Swedish architecture firm Equator, in partnership with Mojang —  the creators of Minecraft, invited players of the popular video game to submit their ideas for an architecture competition that would be held within the game itself.

The Minecraft design competition, which runs until July 31st, is in line with a 2023 housing project by HSB Stockholm in Kungsbroplan. The housing company is holding an architectural competition for the project and wants to see ideas related to the future of housing.

Equator recreated the Kungsbroplan area in Minecraft and invited players to submit their design for a tall building in the project site. Interested Minecraft builders can log on to a server and access a version of the site to be able to submit their design ideas.

The firm will select three winners on August 8th and the three winning designs will be included in the firm’s proposal for the HSB housing project. The winners will also receive Minecraft-related goodies.
