Ecohouse Student Design Competition

  • Comment
Architectural and design students from around the world are invited to enter the Ecohouse Student Design Competition 2008.

The competition invites designs for an ecohouse of 120m2 for up to six persons on a plot of 200m2. It will be launched at the forthcoming Ecobuild by The Concrete Centre, in conjunction with the Architectural Press and Teachers in Architecture.

The designs should take full account of how to reduce energy needs for heating, cooling and lighting, the use of passive sustainability techniques, and the use of local construction materials and renewable energy sources. In addition, the homes must be designed to be robust and resilient and last until at least the end of this century and through an age of increasingly extreme weather events. Whilst taking account of all of these criteria, the homes must also be designed for comfort and lifestyle flexibility.

Total prize fund is £3,500 and the prizes will be presented at the 2008 Oxford Conference on Architectural Education on 22/23 July 2008.

Entries must be received by 22 June 2008. For further information and registration visit: www.concretecentre.com
