In response to the simultaneous crises of Housing, Climate and Equity, this competition challenges students to envision the ideal Habitat home in one of seven North American regions. The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) is pleased to announce the HABITAT Design Competition: Climate Positive Concrete Housing for the 2021-2022 academic year. The competition is a partnership between the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) and Habitat for Humanity International, Inc. The Habitat Design Competition: Climate Positive Concrete Housing is based on the Habitat for Humanity U.S. Construction standards for affordable, resilient, sustainable & accessible homes. The competition will challenge students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of design issues related to the use of concrete in design and construction of a Habitat home.

The 2022 Habitat Design Competition: Climate Positive Concrete Housing challenges students to design affordable multi-unit housing in one of seven North America regions. The need for affordable housing types has never been greater. Populations are fluctuating, given the cost of living, change to commuting, and a range of quality-of-life options. Today’s housing problems are difficult, but architects are in a unique place to envision innovative solutions to the housing crisis that affects us all. NRMCA members through the Build with Strength initiative will donate concrete for the construction of Habitat projects and will work directly with local Habitat organizations to support home builds across North America. Habitat works toward a vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.

Jurors will select one winner from each of the 7 regions, in addition to a selected number of honorable mentions, all at the discretion of the jury. A total of $20,000 is distributed by ACSA.
This competition has not yet listed it's awards.
