Total Housing 01: Apartments

Son Başvuru Tarihi: 28 Kasım 2010


What is Total Housing?

Together with Actar and Architizer we are launching the first of a competition series to create today''s definitive source for residential design that goes beyond standardized and canonical models of inhabitation.

Total Housing:
Apartments is the first in the series of Total Housing Competitions.
The city is resurgent after years of suburban supremacy, but new technologies and socio-economic shifts have made traditional models for urban housing obsolete. Architects and designers are at the forefront of creating physical spaces that react to these new urban conditions, and we want to see them. Total Housing: Apartments is looking for residential projects that address the incongruity between outmoded ideas of domestic space and contemporary urban lifestyles. We are looking for apartments that demonstrate innovation through material applications, programmatic arrangements, technological implementations, or radical conceptual propositions.

Eligibility
The work can be built or proposed, but it must have been conceived or completed within the last 3 years. The work must be submitted by the author or authors of the project [firms, architects, designers, students, teams, anyone].

Categories
Apartment is defined as: a domestic unit for inhabitation within a building occupied by more than one household. Entrants can enter as many projects as they wish, but each project must be classified as one of the following apartment units:

1 - one bed
