As this decay process occurs, the&nbsp;millions of barrels of&nbsp;radioactive waste&nbsp;buried in repositories deep beneath the earth&rsquo;s surface must remain undisturbed. In their latest ideas competition, arch out loud challenged designers to submit proposals for an architectural&nbsp;marker or marker system at the&nbsp;Waste Isolation Pilot Plant&nbsp;that&nbsp;ensures that&nbsp;future societies know about the dangerous nature of such sites.
The competition concluded with one grand prize winner and three runners-up, which you can see below. Ten honorable mentions were also selected. 1st place: “TESTBED” by [ AGENCY-AGENCY ] - TEI CARPENTER, ARIANNA DEANE, ASHELY KUO | BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, USA
