Philippines opens affordable housing design contest

  • Comment

The Philippines has launched a design competition for a pair of flagship affordable housing schemes on its 9,450 hectare Clark Green City masterplan

The contest – backed by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority – seeks proposals for two separate housing zones within the 254 hectare first phase of the enormous development.

A 25 hectare plot has been earmarked for rental housing while a nearby five hectare plot will rehouse around 200 families displaced by construction of the first phase.

Planned to eventually host around 1.2 million residents and 800,000 workers, the new city is being constructed close to Clark Airport north of Manila.

AECOM defeated five rivals including UK-based AWW in an open competition to masterplan Clark Green City earlier this year.

Participants in the latest two-stage contest may feature a maximum of five members and must include at least one architect registered in the Philippines.

Shortlisted teams – planned to be announced on 13 July – will receive around £2,000 each to participate in the competition’s second stage.

The winning team – set to be announced on 14 August – will take home around £26,000 and see their design considered for implementation.

The deadline for registration is 12noon local time on 5 June.
