The City of Portland invites you to share your ideas on the design possibilities of housing oriented to shared courtyards. Portland is promoting courtyard housing as an additional infill housing type that can provide a quality living environment at densities higher than conventional detached housing. We invite entrants to suggest compelling solutions to several key challenges:
* How can courtyard housing be designed to serves an attractive option for families with children?
* How can courtyards serve as usable outdoor space while also providing environmental sustainability benefits, act as a setting for community interaction while also respecting privacy needs, or serve as a pedestrian-oriented space while also accommodating cars?
* How can courtyard housing avoid a purely inward focus and contribute to Portland’s tradition of street-oriented urbanism?
