Build a Better Something During the Deconstruction 2014

Couldn’t make it to Detroit for the Red Bull Creation Contest? Its founder, [Jason Naumoff], has a separate event called The Deconstruction and 2014 marks the second year of this lively, worldwide competition.

The Deconstruction is taking place November 14-16th and will be broadcast live online. That’s right, you can participate from anywhere in the world, and your team’s progress will be live streamed from The Omni Commons in Oakland, CA. Registration began October 16th and the friendly competition is absolutely free to enter.

Creativity is the name of this game. The idea is to build something awesome using what you already have access to, including teamwork skills. Ideally, what you build will be a deconstruction of something you’d like to see rethought, though there is no stated topic. There are no age limits, no boundaries, and very few rules. A number of great things came out of last year’s event, more of which you can check out at their site. What are you waiting for? Go show the world how you’d make it better.

  1. Hey all- The Deconstruction host team is also trying to pull off our own crazy project during the event this year. Want to keep it a bit of a surprise, but it’s a series of connected physical/digital devices that will circle the globe in sequence. We’re looking for teams in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East to collaborate with. If you’re in any of those places, and interested in getting involved, please send an email to thedeconstructionteam@gmail.com

    Also, if anyone has any questions about the event, you can use that email as well. Hope to see you all soon.
