Deadline: 2019-04-03 Award: $6,000 Open to: Architecture Students*
This program is intended to provide architecture students, working individually or in teams, with a platform to explore residential architecture and residential architectural practice.
Historically, Residential Architecture has represented a direct expression of culture and context, with local, vernacular elements informing the stylistic preference of the time. While the exterior of a house presents a more individualized image of its owner(s), the underlying design elements speak to broader cultural ideas of domesticity and family. Technological innovation, both in materials and systems, continues to advance the level of energy efficiency and resiliency in homes designed and built today.
This competition challenges students to envision a house for HERE+NOW: informed by context, culture, and vernacular, but fully embracing 21st century technology and ideas of domesticity.
Submissions should be principally the product of work in a design studio or related class. Entries should be work principally developed for this competition over the course of the 2018-2019 academic year.
