COMPETITION: Designing the Future of New Orleans
Posted By Evelyn Lee On January 7, 2006 @ 10:49 pm In Architecture,Green Design Competitions | 6 Comments
Architectural Record , in partnership with the Tulane School of Architecture, has announced two International design competions to propose new housing for New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
The Dual competions are: 1. New Orleans House Prototype, open to current architecture students; and
2. High-Density on the High-Ground, open to everyone.
Participants in these competitions will design much-needed housing for the city of New Orleans. The first competition will generate proposals for a house prototype, variations of which can be replicated throughout the city. In this competition, the house prototype will be demonstrated as an affordable single-family home on a typical New Orleans lot. The second competition will generate a 140-unit housing community with mixed-use components on a high-ground site by the Mississippi River. Winning designs will be published in Architectural Record and presented at the 2006 AIA Convention and Expo. Selected submissions will appear on McGraw-Hill Construction web sites.
Participants are encouraged to consider the following issues:
-Climate, Geography and Culture of New Orleans
– Pre-fabrication and/or Modular Systems
Important Note: While the competition welcomes visionary or hypothetical proposals, contestants are encouraged to consider that New Orleans faces a severe and immediate housing crisis, and is in need of practical, affordable solutions to this problem.
