Posted on 10/19/2011 6:58:05 AM PDT by dynachrome
Between diseases, global warming and falling satellites, we have a lot to worry about these days but lets not forget about the looming threat of a zombie apocalypse.
To help us prepare for this potential undead disaster, the folks at Architects Southwest, an architecture firm based in Louisiana, have launched the 2011 Zombie Safe House Competition. The organization has tasked artists, architects and other zombie enthusiasts with one goal: Design a haven that can withstand a full-on zombie assault on civilization as we know it.
Design entries so far are varied and imaginative, to say the least. A top contender right now is the Zombie Ranch, a zombie-powered vertical farm.

don't be stingy
Don’t these folks have any real projects to work on?
I love Zombie Ranch, which uses zombies on treadmills to generate electricity!
What do vegetarians who become zombies want?
It’s called marketing.
Free PR. You read about them. Without their putting this contest together, do you think you would have?
Despite the zombie called “tarman”, the use of hot tar pits to trap zombies would seem to be effective. Once they are in the tar up to their knees, it would take enough force to pull their knees out of their sockets entirely to keep going, and they would still be in the tar.
The method would seem to work both for slow and fast zombies, as long as the tar pit is proportional to the total number of zombies. And once you have captured the optional number of zombies for a pit, you just turn off the heat, and the tar hardens, trapping the zombies within.
It’s good to see the blood splatter brushes and tutorials at Deviantart.com get used.
Some of those designs are so lacking basic common sense I’d suspect the designers will succumb to Darwin Events long before Zombie Apocalypse takes them.
The zombie weir to kill zone is a wonderful rehash going back to pre-modern hunting technique.
thanks for the post, now the frteotwawki set can compare notes :P
It took less time than I thought for all those chemicals spilled by Hurricane Katrina to affect the human brain!
