Make Bethnal Green: Part 2 Student Open Ideas Competition

  • Comment

The competition is open students who are challenged to generate design ideas which would make a positive contribution to the environment and Make Bethnal Green

With a portfolio of over 54,000 dwellings, Affinity Sutton is one of the largest providers of affordable homes in the country. Designed by Victorian architects Joseph & Smithem, Affinity Sutton’s Bethnal Green Estate was one of Europe’s first charitable social housing developments, offering an escape from London’s East End slums and a decent home for its inhabitants.

The competition is open to Part 2 architectural students who are enrolled on (or have recently completed) an RIBA validated course at a UK based School of Architecture. Students are challenged to generate design ideas which would make a positive contribution to the environment and Make Bethnal Green. What could be built on the same site today, taking into consideration the 21st Century sustainability agenda, modern building techniques and architectural approaches, together with the financial constraints of the affordable housing sector?

Registrations close on 3 February 2010 and the deadline for the anonymous Stage 1 design submissions is 2.00pm on 10 February 2010.
