This is happening (for the second year in a row): Louisiana-based Architects Southwest initiated a kicky contest asking architects and designers to submit plans for zombie-proof housing. The goal, according to a Yahoo report, is to "[d]esign a haven that can withstand a full-on zombie assault on civilization as we know it." So far, there have been 200 entries from 12 countries and, of course, the voting concludes on Halloween. We've published six of the most mindboggling designs above; do head over to the official Zombie Apocalypse Safe House Competition site to browse the full lot.
