d3 Housing Tomorrow 2014 Architecture Competition

The d3 organization has recently opened entries for their fourth annual Housing Tomorrow (2014) architecture competition.

The Housing Tomorrow competition recognizes exemplary ideas that redefine housing through the implementation of advanced programs, technologies, materials, and social interventions that engage the broadest innovations in housing.

For Housing Tomorrow 2014, d3 will award three main prizes, from which, the biggest prize is $1250 in cash.

Established in 2010, the annual d3 Housing Tomorrow competition has grown to become a leading voice in alternative residential architecture and one of the most notable awards in speculative, performance-based housing design.

The d3 Housing Tomorrow competition for 2014 invites architects, designers, engineers, and students to collectively explore, document, analyze, transform, and deploy innovative approaches to residential urbanism, architecture, interiors, and designed objects. 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.

d3 is an organization committed to advancing innovative positions in architecture, art, and design by providing a collaborative environment for architects, artists, designers, and students from around the world.
