Google SketchUp Sketch-a-Space Design Competition

SketchUp and Easter Seals design competition.  There are often SketchUp design competitions and this one is of importance because it shows that not only is SketchUp a great 3D modeling program for adults, it is also a great visualizing tool for people on the autism spectrum...


Qualities of light, color, pattern, sound and other factors are critical to all good design; when it comes to design for people on the autism spectrum, this is doubly true. Some folks who are on the autism spectrum have environmental sensitivities that can have a profound effect on their ability to make use of a space. Understanding these sensitivities and creating spaces that accommodate them is what Sketch-a-Space is all about.

The design competition is open to people in the United States; you can enter in any one of four categories:

  • Youth with Autism: individuals with autism age 13-17
  • Adult with Autism: individuals with autism age 18 and over
  • Youth: individuals without autism age 13-17
  • Adult: individuals without autism age 18 and over

For complete details, including information about entering the competition, prizes, deadlines, judging (hint: I'm one of them) and official rules, visit the Sketch-a-Space website.
Google SketchUp and  Project Spectrum have cllaborated with Easter Seals on a unique design competition. It was noticed years ago that children on the autistic spectrum who were exposed to SketchUp were able visualize their thoughts better with SketchUp.  This design competition, Sketch-a-Space is open to both pros and amateurs to us Google SketchUp to design spaces for people with autism.
