Elithis is inviting students worldwide to imagine housing in 2050. Well Building 2050 is an international contest that challenges students to place quality of life and energy efficiency at the heart of urban housing in 2050.

This is a team-based two phase competition in which each team may offer only one project.

Well Building 2050 is offering a huge prize of $30,000 for the winning team plus one study trip in France and one training period in Elithis.

Students, Design Urban Housing for the Year 2050

Well Building 2050 is meant to imagine, explore and forecast a vision of housing accessible to everyone, implementing the three pillars of sustainable development with energy efficiency and quality of life as a purpose.

Works resulting from this contest should show a philosophical, sociological, scientific and futuristic view on housing without any energy dependence. The Building should be adapted to lifestyles’ improvement more than to technology or to know‐how.

This contest is open to students worldwide who can give proof of their status as students. The teams should be structured around architecture, design and engineering professions, by incorporating consistently tomorrow’s building profession: green chemistry, art, economy, town-planning, sociology, philosophy, health, or all other disciplines related to humans.
