The private house occupies a unique position both in the history of architecture and human imagination. Beyond its core function of shelter, it is an object of fantasy, a source of delight, a talisman and a testing ground. From Corbusier to Koolhaas, the progress of modern architecture can be tracked through a succession of pioneering individual houses. It is the one commission that virtually all architects tackle at some stage in their careers and is still an important rite of passage for young designers. Regardless of scale, site, programme or budget, the house offers the potential for genuine innovation and it remains critical to the ferment and crystallisation of new architectural ideas.
AR House celebrates this wellspring of creativity with a major new award of £10,000 for the best one-off house. Entries will be judged by a distinguished international jury of Sou Fujimoto (Japan), Alberto Campo Baeza (Spain) and David Chipperfield (UK). AR Editor Catherine Slessor will be jury chair and winning schemes will be published in a special issue of The Architectural Review
From this inaugural year, we hope that AR House will grow to become the most prestigious global award of its kind for the design of a single building type.
