A design competition for the Professional Designers and Students of Design Faculties wanting to contribute ideas and suggest approaches for public housing agencies and private builders, who construct thousands of affordable houses/apartments in Indian cities, for designs that ensure:
- More livable and usable space for the cramped, small houses within the given area for the resident families.
- Better social interaction and community life among them.
- Sustainable delivery of services such as water, electricity and solid waste disposal etc.
- Greater aesthetic sensitivity in buildings that shape the new urban landscape.
These apartments or houses and buildings must get better and the architects and other designers have a role in that happening. Your design interventions could change the way these families live, their children grow, minimize their waste and their cities appear and develop Small, yet Better Designed, Better Functioning, Better Looking and Socially and psychologically better evolved houses and buildings
