Urban Collective challenges the architectural, engineering and design community to design a contemporary modular home; to create an affordable and livable space to increase awareness of the possibilities for modular and prefab construction.
This challenge is open to all architects, engineers, designers and students – individually or in groups, throughout the world.
The winner of the best design will be awarded with US $2000 in cash.
Harness Modular Construction Techniques to Combat the Housing Affordability Crisis in Australia
The Modular Building Design Challenge 2012 aims to not only further dialogue within the design community and build interest about prefabrication and modular design but also to create contemporary and affordable modular designs to aid in combating the widely discussed housing affordability crisis in Australia.
Architectural, engineering and design communities are invited to submit designs that are daring, functional, contemporary, affordable and preferably green. A design that you would be proud to call home…or live next door to…
As this is intended as an ideas competition (and there is no specific site details prescribed), there is no expectation that submitted designs adhere to any specific planning controls. Instead, designs are invited that propose contemporary and functional modular solutions, that provide good amenity for residents and the surrounding neighborhood.
