Micro Housing Ideas Competition 2013
Sponsor: Denver Architectural League
Type: Open, ideas
Location: Denver, USA
Open to all students in a college level design school, interns, designers working in the architectural profession, non registered architects, and registered architects. Open to individuals or teams.
$50 per entry. Teams and / or individuals may submit multiple entries at $50/entry.
An ideas competition for the design of a new housing typology, an 8 unit micro housing complex. The site, located near 3457 Ringsby Court, is across from the entrance into Denver's well known TAXI community (www.taxibyzeppelin.com ) and provides an opportunity for designers to explore and celebrate the following:
This is an ideas competition inspired by a concern about the lack of innovation evident in Denver's existing multi-family housing market where many banal apartment, townhouse and condominium complexes are springing up throughout the area. With this competition, designers have the opportunity to explore the future, question the past and re-invent the notion of responsible aff ordable housing with an emphasis on thriveability and regenerative design (defi ned as a design approach that transcends sustainability while addressing higher principles of societal health, human sustenance, site integration, energy production and appropriate materials and building systems.)
The competition presents an opportunity to follow up on our 2011 Modern House Competition by continuing the design dialogue through an exhibition occurring during the AIA National Convention from June 20 - 22. Prior to the exhibition the submittals will be juried by a distinguished group of representatives in the field of Architecture, Art, Design, Planning and Media. Awards, publication and competition sponsorship will be announced at a later date.

Dawntown Landmark Miami Competition
Sponsor: DawnTown Miami
Type: Open, ideas, international
Location: Miami, Florida
Eligibilty: Open internationally to all designers, professionals, and students.
competition is centered around the idea of how cities are recognized
and perceived through architecture. Many cities worldwide are instantly
identified by their exclusive architectural elements. This raises the
question: What is Miami's landmark? Although this city has impressive
local architectural gems (The Freedom Tower, Miami Marine Stadium),
these buildings reflect a different character and time period of Miami.
In the last 10 years,
the city has radically changed and continues to do so. What this competition seeks, is not to replace the significant architecture, but to add a new landmark representing what Miami is about today and for the future.
