House Challenge 2019 – Desert House

House Challenge 2019 – Desert House

“An idea is salvation by imagination.” – Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect.

HOUSE CHALLENGE is pleased to announce its annual international design competition: House Challenge 2019 – Desert House. The competition is designed to challenge and seek the creation of a temporary dwelling with ideas and concepts in architectural design, landscape design and site planning. The aim of this competition is to promote our ideas of exploring the possibilities for living in harsh environments, as well as simultaneously raising awareness of the environmental sustainability.

This year’s competition focuses on the Desert House, an extraordinary architectural type with creative design methods to adjust the demands of a house to a specific site environment. Entrants are challenged to conceive a new and original concept for temporary house in the desert, however not strictly limited to the style of ‘residence’. A degree of flexibility and alternative choices are allowed, for example ‘portable cabin’ or ‘ transportable home’, provided it is backed up with adequate justification. The project location is defined as a ‘desert area’.

The competition seeks the creation of a temporary dwelling for a group of 4-6 people to live comfortably with ideas and concepts in architectural design with site planning. Provided the site is located in a desert and belongs to a community with similar houses, possible solutions about plumbing and electricity should be figured out. Your designed desert house has to feature the most basic components for people to live around 90 days. We also encourage the creation of new living style which is not only limited for houses, but also can be like pavilions, structures, or landscape.

Whoever you are students or professional architects, or experienced designers, working individually or in teams, we warmly welcome you to take participate in this competition. Winning participants will receive cash prize with certificate.
