What happens when you set architects free to do anything they want? The Outdoor Arts Foundation of Tampa Bay and the R'Club Child Care are teaming up and challenging architects to push their imaginations to the limit. From the preliminary sketches and models, it appears the outcome will be anything but normal. The houses will be on display at Westshore Mall and Tampa International Airport, and in a few months will be auctioned off at the Sirata Beach Resort and Conference Center.
