The Renaissance (Completed)

The Brief

The Renaissance of the Metaverse is a 3d buildathon event, designed to spur the creation of new virtual worlds. It’s an open call for Architects, Designers, and Artists, to build 3d spaces centered around 3 categories:

Spaces To Gather. Design gathering spaces to meet & share big ideas.

Spaces To Show Art. Design spaces to display incredible works of art.

Spaces To Perform. Design event spaces for live performances.

The aesthetic interpretation is where you can let your imagination run free.


There is $250,000 of prize money for this build-a-thon. The top 18 winning Spaces are required to be minted as NFT and will be bid on by Protocol Labs for the following prize amounts: 3 grand prizes of $30,000, 5 top prizes $10,000, 12 design prizes of $3,000.

Additionally, there are 30 creator prizes of $1,000 each, and 60 finalist prizes of $300. An additional $15,000 in community bonus prizes will be awarded along with $10,000 in interactivity bonus prizes.


Judging will be centered around the utility of Spaces as outlined in the brief.

The Renaissance will be judged by a panel of industry experts, including CEO of Protocol Labs, Juan Benet, that will be announced in February 2022.
