eVolo Architecture makes an international invitation to take part in its third architectural competition. eVolo encourages the exchange of architectural ideas amongst world designers on one of the oldest architectural genres: Housing.

The idea of the competition is to provide new housing ideas that will improve, adapt, and transform our society. Competitors are invited to re-think our needs for the XXI Century taking in consideration, economic, social, and cultural conditions. The architectural proposals should engage different scales, its integration to the urban fabric and its responses to domestic life. The idea is to produce new housing typologies that will blur the boundaries of our society. There must be a dialogue between the public and the private, permanent and temporal, wealthy and poor. Designs could explore the restoration and improvement of an old neighborhood or the development of a new one.

Participants should research on new technologies and materials that would make their proposals sustainable, ecological, progressive, and innovative. There are no restrictions on site, program, and size. The idea is to provide the maximum freedom to the designers to express their creativity and design the new housing for the XXI Century.

Somnath Ray, Jose Munoz-Villers, Yi Cheng Pan and Fernando Velasco
