The d3 Housing Tomorrow competition for 2013 invites architects, designers, engineers, and students to collectively explore, document, analyze, transform, and deploy innovative approaches to residential urbanism, architecture, interiors, and designed objects.
Participants are encouraged to rethink residential design and develop transformative solutions that advance sustainable thought.
This competition is held annually and each year three main cash prizes are awarded. Award-winning project team members receive individual award certificates and top designs get exhibited on-line by d3.
d3 Housing Tomorrow 2013 – International Architectural Design Competition – Opens for Submissions
The competition calls for transformative solutions that advance sustainable thought, building performance, and social interaction through study of intrinsic environmental geometries, social behaviors, urban implications, and programmatic flows. Special emphasis may be placed on housing concepts that investigate dialogues including engagement of internal/external socio-economic diversity, change/adaptability over time, public/private spatial connectivity, and permanence/impermanence of materials.
d3 challenges participants to rethink strategies for investigating residential design from macro-to-micro scales ranging from urban—promoting broader physical interconnectivity; communal—exploiting an interaction of units with shared facilities; and internal—examining the interior particularity of the unit, individual, or family in housing design toward promoting identity, ownership, and intimacy.
There are two category groups for entries and three main prizes to be won.
The entry fee is $50 USD per entry.
