Architects want to know: What's the perfect zombie safe house?

A real-deal architectural firm is holding a contest to see who can design the most effective residence for surviving the undead apocalypse—and letting you vote on the winner.

The 2010 Zombie Safe House Competition is sponsored by Architects Southwest, and they've got four options for you to choose from: a floating refuge, a mountain hideout, a skyscraper-y fort and the residential equivalent of a turtle shell. (I'm rather fond of the Huckleberry, myself.)

There doesn't seem to be a prize for winning this competition, beyond Internet-wide recognition and the comforting knowledge that when the inevitable zombie cataclysm happens, you'll have a head start on surviving it.
