Humanitarian organisation Architecture for Humanity has launched a design competition calling for teams to design open-source housing

The competition entitled ‘Forever Home’ calls for teams to design an open-source house using compressed earth blocks as the primary buildig material.

The winning proposal will be built on a site in Colorado to demonstrate the future of housing.

Entries should focus on renewability of materials, thermal performance, and adaptability.

The construction of the winning scheme will begin in spring 2014 and the runners-up will be awarded $1,000.

Submissions will be accepted between 1 January and 21 January 2014 through the allocated contest page.
