[Projects must be submitted by 11 September] The Prince’s Foundation has launched a competition to design low-energy housing aimed at architects aged under 40

Launched in partnership with Media 10, the contest looks for schemes ‘in line with the foundation’s stance’ on sustainability with use of local materials also encouraged.

Entrants are tasked with designing a joined pair of properties, one a ground floor shop and first floor flat and its neighbour a two storey townhouse. Judging requirements include ‘Ingenuity, Firmness, commodity of materials and delight.’

The winning scheme will be built using the ‘Prince’ House system’ of applying an insulated shell and exhibited at the 2013 Ideal Home Show. The winner will leave with a £5,000 prize while the house is re-located to a development site.

  • £5000 'prize'... they used to call that a 'fee', I guess these days if you get paid for something it feels like a 'prize'
