The Home International Design Competition is open for 2019 application. The Home remains the most significant architectural place we experience throughout our lives. Home represents safety, ownership, privacy, and stability. Home is where we can be alone and with people we care about most. Historically, the home has been a place of permanence. Despite how chaotic our lives are, we cherish the consistency of sleeping in the same bed and performing the same daily rituals here. However, new trends in digitization and globalization continue to reshape realms of everyday life and alter our physical environments, including our homes. It is important to examine how we adapt our living spaces to these shifts.
The HOME competition invites all international designers to explore ideas of domestic architectural design for the future. Designers may consider the impacts of global population shifts, proximity of major cities to coastlines, new materials and building techniques, as well as the rise of co-housing, tiny homes, smart houses and marketplaces like Airbnb. HOME creates a platform to speculate the ways new technological, political, environmental and cultural changes can redefine the spaces where we live.
The total prize for the Home Design competition is $8,000. Winners will receive awards in the following categories:
Submissions may propose a single family home, a multifamily building, an adaptable structure, temporary living experience, or a home that takes the shape of any model or scale. Further, all submissions should clearly define how a resident or residents interact with the proposed living space through graphic representation, text summary, or both.
