Hamilton Wood Type continues to thrive. I'm looking forward to seeing the new space this autumn.

I know Minnesota ranks high for theater seats per capita, but this is so cool!

It's time to take the streets back from the the transportation engineers -- even if it's only for pretend.

Videotect 3, Architecture Minnesota's third annual video competition, culminates in a high-energy, public screening event at the Walker Art Center Cinema on Thurs., March 7, 7 p.m.

Videotect 3's Grand Prize and Honorable Mention winners and Viewers' Choice finalists will be unveiled at this event, where the audience casts the final votes to determine the winner of the Viewers' Choice Award. The event is a Walker Target Free Thursday Night program; attendees may pick up a free ticket at the museum's Vineland Place entrance. Food and drink will be available in the cinema lobby before and after the show.

This year's competition challenged entrants to imagine the City of the Future, and participants responded with visions bright and dark. In all, the contest drew 20 entries, from places as far away as China and Italy. Online voting ended Feb. 15, but the videos can still be viewed at http://www.architecturemn.com/am/videotect.html

"We got scifi parodies with great messages, possibly the funniest death scene ever filmed and an animated entry that imagines the U.S. dividing into two countries: The environmentally progressive Lower Canada to the north and the oil-dependent Kingdom Come to the south," says Architecture Minnesota editor Christopher Hudson. "We can't wait to see the winners and finalists on the Walker big screen."

WCCO's Jason DeRusha will host the show, and helping present the awards will be Videotect 3 judges:
* Renee Cheng, head of the University of Minnesota School of Architecture
* Peter Remes, developer with First & First
* Zechariah Thormodsgaard, filmmaker of Gaardhouse, who won the Videotect 2 Grand Prize in 2012.

The competition was made possible by the generous support of its sponsors: AIA Minnesota, Target, Cuningham Group Architecture, RSP Architects, HGA Architects and Engineers, and AECOM.

Architecture Minnesota is the award-winning magazine of the American Institute of Architects Minnesota. For more on Videotect 3, visit http://www.architecturemn.com/am/videotect.html
