Houses for Change competition open for entries

IE University has announced its first competition initiative ‘HOUSES FOR CHANGE’, hosted by IE School of Architecture and Design. The purpose of the competition is to consider housing as an urgent and basic component of improving urban environments for the poor and at risk and to propose viable housing alternatives for those often neglected or left out.

1. All members of a team must be currently registered students or recent graduates with a maximum of 5 years since the date of their graduation. That is to say, the official graduation date for a Bachelor degree or first Master degree was in 2009 or later. Additionally, no team may have any participant over the age of 35 years old at the time of submission of the competition entry.
2. There must be at least one architecture/design student or architecture/design recent graduate on each team.
3. The maximum team size is six people. Each participant or member of a team may only participate in one project and may not submit more than one entry to the competition.

Participants must register between June 27, 2013 and December 10, 2013 and the complete competition proposal must be submitted by December 16, 2013. The winning project will be granted with a scholarship equivalent of €20,000 applicable towards the tuition fees of a master program at IE.

It is the intention of IE to construct a prototype of the winning entry. A prototype may be realized, if suffi¬cient funding can be secured and a partner school in the region is willing to assist with the organisation and management of the project.
